Last weekend, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson had a series of anti-Semitic posts on his Instagram account.
On Thursday, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who is Jewish, responded and offered to meet up with Jackson in Washington D.C. to visit the Holocaust Museum as well as the museum of African American History and Culture. And then afterwards they could have "those uncomfortable conversations."
“I have seen DeSean play in his career, make outstanding football plays, communicated over social media," Edelman said in the Instagram video. "I have nothing but respect for his game. I know he said some ugly things, but I do see an opportunity to have a conversation."
Less than 24 hours later, the story has a good ending as Edelman shared via social media Friday morning that the two spoke Thursday night and said they are "making plans to use our experiences to educate one another and grow together."
