A report from ESPN found the NFL plans to propose donating nearly $100 million to causes of players’ choice. The catch? The controversial NFL protest has to stop. The Players Coalition has become split over the matter. Now, Twitter users are equally as divided.

On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid said he left The Players Coalition because Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins did not include NFL protest spearheader Colin Kaepernick. Reid added that his concerns failed to be addressed in the Coalition as well, according to the Associated Press.

Online, users weighed in on if the measure was a good thing or not.
