The NFL is facing mounting pressure from its players and from the public, who are demanding to see actions against the former Seattle Seahawks player accused of brutally beating his girlfriend. As Blavity previously reported, Chad Wheeler was arrested in Kent, Washington, on Monday after allegedly choking the unidentified woman.
Following the allegations, the Seahawks cut Wheeler from the team. But the NFL has stayed mute on the situation. Multiple players are now demanding for the league to issue a strong statement against the unemployed player and impose league consequences, ProFootball Talk reported.
