ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall took to social media to share a racist, threatening letter that denounced him for taking a knee during the national anthem earlier this season. He said he wanted to expose the racism that exists in society.
Marshall said he received the letter a couple of weeks ago and turned it over to the team's security department, which has been in contact with the NFL and local law enforcement.
Marshall posted the letter, written on front and back in block lettering, on his social media accounts alongside his caption, which read: "The hatred by some against people of color is one of the reasons we are where we're at in the world today, and they wonder why we feel the way we do and take the stances that we take."
"I just wanted to expose that racism still exists," Marshall said Friday.
