NFL Releases Statement After Three Dolphins Protest During Anthem

NFL Releases Statement After Three Dolphins Protest During Anthem

Several players took a knee, raised fists or did not take to the field while the National Anthem was played before a dozen preseason games began across the country.

Despite that cooling-off declaration, Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled during before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Defensive end Robert Quinn stood and raised his right fist, as he did during the anthem last season with the Los Angeles Rams.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played and "spent the anthem walking toward the bench", the news outlet reported. "We won't let it stop what we stand for". This was a pregame gesture that Jenkins made during the 2017 season.

Jenkins met with Reverend Jesse Jackson when Jackson visited the team this week. I did what I did.

Franchise owners agreed on a policy earlier this year that requires players to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner if they are on the field. Instead, the league opted to join with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) to come up with a joint policy.




"Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL's policy regarding the national anthem".

"While those discussions continue, the National Football League has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem".

In Florida, Jalen Ramsey, Telvin Smith, Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon of the Jacksonville Jaguars did not show up on the field before their game against the New Orleans Saints until after the anthem was over, according to Florida-Times Union reporter Phillip Heilman.

There also were at least two players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem.

Ex-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to protest in 2016.

"We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issue affecting our communities".
