These recent accusations aren’t the first time Kelly’s leadership has been called into question. During his tenure as Philadelphia Eagles coach (2013-2015), Kelly’s management style was often described as dictatorial. Several players, including those not mentioned in the recent tweet, have spoken out about feeling alienated and disrespected under his leadership.

However, these previous criticisms rarely touched on race. The current allegations raise a much more serious concern, suggesting a potential pattern of discriminatory behavior towards Black players.

DeSean Jackson, a former star wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, has been particularly vocal about his experience with Kelly.

Offensive lineman Jason Peters, while not specifically mentioning race, added his voice to the chorus of discontent with a vulgar but clear condemnation of Kelly’s character. These accusations, coming from prominent former players, paint a disturbing picture of Kelly’s coaching tenure.

It’s important to note that these are just accusations, and Kelly has not yet had a chance to publicly respond. However, the sheer number of players coming forward with similar stories warrants a thorough investigation. The NFL has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination, and if these allegations are proven true, Kelly could face significant consequences.
