NFL’s Hail Mary: Deal would dole out millions to Soros-linked social-justice groups

Plagued with sagging ratings, player protests and fan outrage, the NFL has thrown a political Hail Mary by reportedly agreeing to dole out millions to social-justice groups connected to Democratic billionaire George Soros.

Under an agreement with the Players Coalition, NFL owners plan to funnel tens of millions to the Dream Corps, a leftist advocacy group led by ex-Obama adviser Van Jones and linked to Mr. Soros, which has called for saving the Clean Power Plan, cutting the prison population by half, and providing “sanctuary for all.”

The $89 million, seven-year deal also carves out millions for the Players Coalition, according to ESPN, which has been advised by Soros-funded groups such as the Campaign for Fair Sentencing of Youth and the Center for American Progress, a leader of the anti-Trump resistance.
