Andy Dalton joins a growing list of high profiled quarterbacks that continue to speak out on the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
The former Cincinnati Bengals and current Dallas Cowboys QB took to social media on Saturday and dropped a powerful statement that addressed racists and how Floyd was treated.
“I have a heaviness about everything that has gone on with George Floyd and many others,” Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton posted on Twitter this morning. “These racist acts are inexcusable and horrific. We have to fight against racism and not be naive to the injustice that is happening. Jesus came for people, all people, so we could experience His love and have eternal life in heaven. We were all created in His image. That makes every life valuable.”
Dalton finished his ninth season passing for 3,494 yards, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was released by the team that drafted him this offseason after they selected Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
He then took his talents to the Dallas Cowboys to backup Dak Prescott.
