Herschel Walker: Players Received ‘Hush Money’ From NFL To Stand For Anthem (Video)
I love Herschel Walker! He has overcome a lot of hardships in his life to become an inspirational, outstanding American! He is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and its ability to overcome many challenges.
The money actually was promised to the protesting players’ organization, taken from money the NFL had allocated for breast cancer and veterans’ programs.
Former NFL running back Herschel Walker accused the NFL of essentially giving out “hush money” to stop players from kneeling for the national anthem.
The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner highlighted the fact that the NFL in late November offered $100 million to social justice organizations favored by players.
The move was widely viewed as an attempt by the league to end the controversy surrounding the anthem protests.
“The league gave the players a large sum of money toward their cause. That’s hush money,” he said, adding that players never should have been kneeling in the first place. Read more at Fox News.

Some NFL players are so selfish they steal attention meant for Hero’s who gave their life to a higher calling…
