Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin, wearing a T-shirt with "EQUALITY" on the front, said it was important for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to co-sign their letter expressing support for a bill that seeks criminal justice reform. Baldwin: "It was important that it wasn't just coming from myself. I think, again, the important aspect of it is us having a unified effort. We don't want to be divided anymore. We don't want to continue with this divisive rhetoric. We don't want to engage with this divisive rhetoric. We want to start showing our players, the NFL itself, our NFL community that we can be collectively united to seek the changes that we want to see, which are beneficial to the entirety of society. So I thought it was important that we didn't do this as individuals but we did it as a collective group."
