Malcolm Jenkins, Anquan Boldin, others open door to player activism beyond anthem

Boldin put the trips together, Jenkins was on both, and combined they were joined by Glover Quin, Josh McCown, Andrew Hawkins and Johnson Bademosi, plus former player Donte Stallworth.

Jenkins has met with the police commissioner of Philadelphia, campaigned for recently-elected city district attorney Larry Krasner and spoken at length with elected officials in Pennsylvania, his home state of New Jersey and in Ohio, where he played in college.

But Smith has made his biggest impact on Twitter, promoting policing reform bills in Congress and sparring with fans — and, this past week, Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock — over how active athletes should be on societal issues, if at all.

For Boldin, that means south Florida and his hometown of Pahokee, near Palm Beach — the region in which, in October 2015, his cousin, Corey Jones, was killed by an officer in a roadside incident.

Boldin testified about this before a Congressional forum and later spoke to the two senators who sponsored the police reform bill, New Jersey's Cory(cq) Booker and Maryland's Chris Van Hollen.
