Roger Goodell Releases Statement Regarding The Death Of George Floyd

Published on

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has released a statement regarding the death of George Floyd, on behalf of the NFL.

“The NFL family is greatly saddened by the tragic events across our country,” Goodell said in his statement. “The protesters’ reactions to these incidents reflect the pain, anger and frustration that so many of us feel.”

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Mr. George Floyd and to those who have lost loved ones, including the families of Ms. Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and Mr. Ahmaud Arbery, the cousin of Tracy Walker of the Detroit Lions.”

Floyd died May 25 after police officer Derek Chauvin planted his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes. Floyd could be heard saying “I can’t breathe.”

“As current events dramatically underscore, there remains much more to do as a country and as a league. These tragedies inform the NFL’s commitment and our ongoing efforts. There remains an urgent need for action. We recognize the power of our platform in communities and as part of the fabric of American society. We embrace that responsibility and are committed to continuing the important work to address these systemic issues together with our players, clubs and partners.”
