Justin Fields wants to play football.
On Sunday, Fields started a petition on MoveOn.org to get the Big Ten powers that be to bring back college football.
From the petition:
We, the football players of the Big Ten, together with the fans and supporters of college football, request that the Big Ten Conference immediately reinstate the 2020 football season. Allow Big Ten players/teams to make their own choice as to whether they wish to play or opt out this fall season. Allow Big Ten players/teams who choose to opt out of playing a fall season to do so without penality (sic) or repercussion.
Why is this important?
We want to play. We believe that safety protocols have been established and can be maintained to mitigate concerns of exposure to Covid 19. We believe that we should have the right to make decisions about what is best for our health and our future. Don’t let our hard work and sacrifice be in vain. #LetUsPlay!
The number of signatures is growing by the minute.
Fields passed for 3,273 yards, 41 touchdowns and three interceptions last season, while rushing for 10 touchdowns. He led the Buckeyes to a spot in the College Football Playoff but lost in the semifinals.
The Ohio State considered one of the top QB prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft if he comes out after this year.
