Saquon Barkley is the latest professional athlete who has spoken out on the killing of George Floyd.
The Giants running back posted a Photoshop image on Instagram on Tuesday that shows him wearing a jersey that reads, “I can’t breathe.”
Floyd, 46, died last week after police officer Derek Chauvin, 44, pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck after Floyd was suspected of spending a counterfeit $20 bill. Chauvin has been charged third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Barkley also retweeted a message from San Francisco 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin that read: “It’s not WHITE VS. BLACK, IT’S EVERYONE VS. RACISM!”
On Monday night, Jets safety Jamal Adams took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the killings of Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the growing protests and civil unrest throughout the country. He also sent his condolences, saying his “heart” goes out to all of them.
“Stop killing us,” he tweeted. “This isn’t just a political issue, this is about the morality of our nation. We all have a part to play!”
