BACK2THEFRESH (AP) Native American Kendal Thompson signed to the Washington Redskins in 2017, and was released from them in 2018. This was the very first time I’ve personally ever heard about a Native American playing professional football with the Redskins.
That had to have been a love/hate relationship because of how indifferent Native Americans feel about the Washington Redskins Logo. I hope that his injuries on the field with the Washington Redskins, had nothing to do with the controversy behind the NFL and the Native American.
It’s just that I know what I’ve been through as a half Mohawk in the music business, and something just doesn’t sit right with me with Kendal Thompson.
Here is Kendal Thompson speaking with a reporter while he was with Utah as a collegiate athlete in 2014.
