NFL Team Mulling Plans To Kneel During Anthem

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Dak Prescott wants his teammates on the Dallas Cowboys to decide for themselves whether to protest during the national anthem.

Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford says they have the “green light” to do so.

Owner Jerry Jones hasn’t said in so many words, but it appears his hard-line stance requiring players to stand during the anthem has eased amid a national reckoning over racial justice.

When the Cowboys open the season next Sunday night at the new home of the Los Angeles Rams, it seems clear several players are likely to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner” for the first time — four years after Colin Kaepernick started the gesture to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
