“That said, his move is unnecessary,” the 20-year-old NFL veteran added. “I don’t care what color this person is on the street. I don’t know what caused that video. We saw where his knee was on his neck, but the person had already thrown away the towel.”

He said last week that he believes that political participation in athletics has hurt the game, and he agrees with those who have decided to stop watching sports.
Favre defended political and sports remarks after being strongly opposed on Wednesday: “I just made an opinion. Despite what some people think, I am certainly not a racist, and you know, I fight for unity, I just think there is a better way to unify our country.”
“That being said, there are many things that need to be stopped.” Favre said.
At the same time, the National Football League (NFL) expressed support for the verdict in the Chauvin trial in a statement on Tuesday.
The statement said: “The results of the Derek Chavin trial in Minneapolis today did not eliminate the loss of life.” “Sir. George Floyd should be with us today. We should be with us today.
