NFL Player Tyler Eifert Goes Against the Grain of Teammates, Honors Fallen Officer David Dorn on Helmet

"It was honor wearing David Dorn's name on my helmet today"


While the NFL athletes continue to focus on social justice by wearing the names of anyone shot by police who happens to be black on their helmets, one player chose a much different path. 

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert chose to go against the grain, and instead wore the name of retired officer David Dorn, who was brutally killed by looters, after trying to protect a local business in St. Louis.

Eifert said on Twitter that it was an ‘honor’ to wear the name of David Dorn on his helmet.
