Cardinals' Michael Bidwill: NFL Players Should 'Restrict' Game-Day Statements

Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill expressed support Tuesday for NFL players speaking out about social issues, but he called for them to place their focus elsewhere on game days.

According to's Josh Weinfuss, Bidwill discussed his stance on players having a voice on topics other than football:

"I think it's important to speak up. People are saying stick to sports? You know what? We ask our players 20 days a year—game days—to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community. Just like I am and other owners are.
