Hamza Abdullah, a former defensive back in the NFL, blasted the league and Commissioner Roger Goodell for failing to ensure the health and well-being of players in a series of profanity-laced tweets.
On a verified account, Abdullah said that the NFL treats players like slaves, that Goodell would sell his “soul for a dollar,” and that the league should pay for psychiatric evaluations for its players. Both Hamza and his younger brother, Husain, were out of the league last year, pursuing Muslim studies with a pilgrimage to Mecca.
Abdullah added: “There’s a reason 80 percent of former players either go broke or get divorced within five years of leaving the game,” he tweeted.
Scott Fujita, a former linebacker and NFL Players Association executive committee member, added:
What if I told you there's nothing overly rare or unique about Hamza Abdullah's feelings? MANY players agree. But he's speaking up.
