"I'm embarassed, tired, hearbroken..."

Those were the words used to describe how a few Packers players felt in light of George Floyd's death.

"The inhumane murder of George Floyd has become an all to common image in America," cornerback, Kevin King said.

Players, both black and white shared a common message for change in a two minute video posted on the Packers social media platforms, but it wasn't the first time members of the organization have spoken up over the week.
Offensive lineman, Billy Turner has continued to voice his opinion through social media and rookie, Kamal Martin attended a Minnesota protest.

Although the team is separated from each other for now, they stand united with a clear message.

"Its time for change."
