Anquan Boldin to Trump: Forget Pardon List ... Make New Policy!

NFL's Anquan Boldin to Trump, Forget Pardon List, Make New Policy!

Breaking News

Anquan Boldin says he's essentially REJECTING Donald Trump's challenge for NFL players to come up with a list of people who deserve a Presidential pardon. 

Instead, Boldin says the burden should be on the President to come up with new policies to help non-violent drug offenders who've been locked up for way too long. 

The former Super Bowl champ posted a video directed to Trump spelling out his position.

"I saw the challenge that you issued to NFL players about sending you a list of people that they think should be pardoned ... people that we know, people like [Alice Johnson] who I think deserved to be pardoned."

"Here's the problem with that ... there's a lot of people like Ms. Johnson that should be pardoned that don't know a celebrity (like Kim Kardashian) or an NFL player."

"So, instead of us sending you a list, I've got a better idea -- how about you come up with a policy to pardon all those people, those non-violent dru offenders who've already spent a lengthy sentence in jail at this point. Let's say 10, 15 years."

"I think that's a better way to create change that were looking for."

Boldin also teamed up with players Torrey Smith, Malcolm Jenkins and Ben Watson to write an op-ed for The NY Times spelling out the plan in greater detail.

So far, no word back from Trump.
