Joe Lockhart, the former White House press secretary who has been the NFL’s chief communications officer and primary spokesman for the past two years, is leaving the league.
Lockhart told members of his staff he is stepping aside after the Super Bowl to spend more time with his family, do political commentary and perhaps teach.
It’s not immediately clear what the NFL will do to replace him. He had served as the NFL’s executive vice president of communications and public affairs.
Geragos’s firm confirmed the grievance, saying it filed only after pursuing every possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives.
In a statement, the law firm’ also said: If the NFL .?.?. is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest 锟斤拷 which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago 锟斤拷 should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by LeSean McCoy Youth jersey the Executive Branch of our government. .?.?. Protecting all athletes from such collusive conduct is what compelled Mr. Kaepernick to file his grievance.

In previous years, it would have been easy to dismiss Mayfield. But the instant success of Wilson, Dak Prescott, Marcus Mariota and Jared Goff has eased the stigma attached to quarterbacks who are either relatively small or come from a spread offense. If anything, the NFL may be searching for quarterbacks who, like Mayfield, can make plays on the run, either by design or when defenses break down.
