Florida State defensive tackle Marvin Wilson threatened a teamwide boycott of the FSU football program after Seminoles head coach Mike Norvell said he spoke with each player individually about racial injustice, a claim Wilson denies.
Tashan Reed, a former FSU beat writer who covers the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders for The Athletic, denied he misquoted Norvell.

At least two players, offensive tackle Darius Washington and defensive tackle Jamarcus Chatman, appeared to back up Wilson’s remarks in their own social media posts.
Norvell, who was hired in December after four years leading the Memphis program, was speaking in response to a question from Reed about the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis Police custody and the subsequent worldwide protests.
