Ron Rivera, Jason Wright honor George Floyd during OTAs originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

As the Washington Football Team began its OTAs on Tuesday, the group took a moment to remember the life and legacy of George Floyd.

One year ago to the day, on May 25, 2020, Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. It was a moment that spurred activism and demands of social equality and racial justice across the country and world. Sports organizations were vocal as well, with the Washington Football Team working to bring attention to the injustices many face on a daily basis.

Both head coach Ron Rivera and team president Jason Wright addressed the team on Tuesday, honoring Floyd and the fight for equality.

“It’s a moment that we most certainly should remember and recall. I know a lot of things have happened," Rivera said. "I know that through our justice system, justice was served and that has helped to start the healing process as we go forward.”

“We wanted to make sure that everyone understands our thoughts and prayers are with the Floyd family and with the nation as we continue to work on healing and going forward," Rivera said.
