Offensive Tackle Mitchell Schwartz (31) is a professional football player, currently a free agent. He was named to the Pro Football Focus 2012 All-Rookie Team and to the 2014 PFF All-Third Year Team. Following the 2018 season, he won the Pro Football Focus Matthews Award and was designated a First Team All-Pro by the Associated Press. In 2019 he was included in the CBS Sports NFL All-Decade Team. The quote below was tweeted by Schwartz after Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson expressed antisemitic views on Instagram.
Quote: “As a Jewish American in the NFL, I stand with my brothers of all races and creeds against any form of discrimination and hate. One of the things that makes our game so great is the diverse background of the guys in the locker room, not just from a racial standpoint but a religious one as well. Although in my personal experience my teammates have always been supportive and interested in my faith, anti-Semitism is on the rise in this country. ”
