Earlier this month, after the Eagles/White House fiasco, President Trump asked NFL players to suggest names of people they'd like to see pardoned.  Now, several players have finally responded.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins posted a video response saying Trump should pardon "those who have life without parole for non-violent offenses".  His teammate Chris Long asked Trump to pardon the 11,000 people in federal prison on marijuana offenses.

Four NFL players including Jenkins also wrote a New York Times op-ed saying "a handful of pardons will not address the sort of systemic injustice that NFL players have been protesting."

Do you think Trump will respond to these suggestions?  Should the legal system take a second look at people serving long sentences for marijuana crimes?
