He also sees no reason why his focus on one should come at the expense of the other.
The veteran NFL safety recently became a cable news network correspondent specializing in social and racial justice matters in what is also a presidential election year.
But Jenkins says he’s become used to balancing football and activism since co-founding the Players Coalition in 2017. He also won a Super Bowl with Philadelphia that season.
