‘The idea was to be unified as a team when so much attention is paid to things dividing our country, but I wish we approached it differently. We did not want to appear divided on the sideline with some standing and some kneeling or sitting.’
He closed out by saying: ‘I appreciate the unique diversity in my team and throughout the league and completely support the call for social change and the pursuit of true equality.

‘Moving forward, I hope standing for the Anthem shows solidarity as a nation, that we stand united in respect for the people on the front lines protecting our freedom and keeping us safe. God bless those men and women.’
