Mill spoke to news anchor Lester Holt from a Pennsylvania prison in a phone interview that aired Thursday on "NBC Nightly News". "He's very intelligent. And makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform".
Some sport analysts see Kraft's visit in prison as a good gesture and will eventually help build a better relationship between the players and owners in light of Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest two years ago.
"He's an awesome young man", Kraft said to reporters. I know how I'd feel if I were in the situation he is in.
Kraft went on to discuss how his interactions with National Football League players shaped his views on criminal justice reform. He is one of the most up people I know. It's just wrong. We have to find a way to correct it and also help the community help themselves.
Despite being team Trump, Kraft broke ranks with the president during discussions about the #TakeAKnee protests (which the president very loudly criticized), acting as a mediator between National Football League players and owners. Kraft said the team has to "develop contingency plans" for all matters because "anyone could be in a auto accident" even if you're not spending all day anxious about that possibility.
While Mill - born Robert Rihmeek Williams - says he didn't initially believe he would be on probation for so long, he admitted that the length of probation was a sign that he would likely return to prison.
The Philadelphia Eagles adopted Meek Mill's song "Dreams and Nightmares" as an anthem of sorts through the 2017 season, using it as the soundtrack to their Super Bowl entrance before defeating the Patriots.
