The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, sources told ESPN.
Jenkins revealed that he will not protest by raising his fist when the National Anthem is played before the Eagles face the Seahawks on Sunday.
The Players Coalition, started by Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and retired NFL wide receiver Anquan Boldin, "was supposed to be formed as a group that represents NFL Athletes who have been silently protesting social injustices and racism", Thomas and Reid said on Twitter.
The reported agreement comes after two players expressed displeasure with the coalition. But I will say he's misled us.

Further, a posting on Amazon .in affirms that the Honor 7X will go at a bargain in the nation from December 7 at 12pm IST. The device is powered by a Hisilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor with a Mali-G72 MP12 graphic processor.
One of the players that publicly left the Players Coalition earlier this week said Thursday that the report is misleading. "And obviously through this year and talking with the league and what they've kind of proposed, I feel like has presented a bigger and better platform to continue to raise that awareness and continue to [influence] positive change".
The discussions occurred in NY between NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and a group of players known as the Players' Coalition, which on Wednesday suffered a setback when San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid and Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas backed out of the group over how the leaders were dealing with league officials.
Reid was the first player to kneel alongside Colin Kaepernick, the embattled former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started the protests and remains a free agent since opting out of his contract in March.
It's unclear where things go from here, but the NFL's offer is reportedly still on the table.

"It's apparent the National Football League is trying to buy an end to the protests", Reid said on Wednesday. Reid said there was a lack of transparency from leadership, specifically Jenkins. Reid also said Jenkins told the NFL the players would end demonstrations if money was donated by the league to certain initiatives.
Reid said that he is considering forming his own organization to work toward change.
Players have stated that they've been protesting police brutality and other facets of in the criminal justice system they believe unfairly treats people of color.
Jenkins said he's encouraged by what he and other players have accomplished since he first raised his before a Monday night game in Chicago against the Bears on September 19, 2011, joining the movement Kaepernick catalyzed. If players accept the money, they're just looking for a fight if they continue to kneel. What we didn't have was a conversation with players in the coalition based on some of the responses that we got from the league.
