The NFL plans to have the words "End racism" and "It takes all of us" stenciled in the end zones this season, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.

“The NFL stands with the black community, the players, clubs and fans confronting systemic racism. We will not relent in our work,” Goodell said on a conference call, according to NFL.com and Pro Football Talk.

NFL Executive Vice President Troy Vincent also reportedly said players will have the right to boycott Week 1 in protest.

In separate news, Vincent said Tuesday that the league is finalizing plans to pump in crowd noise at games, according to ESPN. That includes setting a maximum decibel level.
