He and Albert Wilson took a knee behind their teammates.

Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn (94) raises his right fist during the singing of the national anthem on Thursday. There were no apparent protests by the Buccaneers.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpKobach agrees to recuse himself from vote counting in Kansas GOP primary NFL players kneel during national anthem before first preseason game Schiff blasts GOP for Russian Federation probe conduct: "That's how you obstruct an investigation, not how you conduct one" MORE on Friday renewed his attacks on NFL players who protest during the national anthem, claiming they "wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define".

But the owners approved a new policy in May that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the anthem. "Albert Wilson joined him in protest".

President Donald Trump, on summer vacation at his Bedminster, N.J., golf resort weighed in Friday morning, again suggesting that players should be suspended without pay for their protests during the anthem, tweeting, in part: "NFL players are at it again".

However, the NFL put the new rule on hold when it began engaging the NFL Players Association in talks over how to best convey social-justice messages. This was a pregame gesture that Jenkins made during the 2017 season. Turns out, Bausby said, he raised his fist all last season, but he was on the practice squad, not in uniform and not standing with the uniformed players.

"I got beliefs, I did what I did". "You know what I mean?"

Jenkins met with Reverend Jesse Jackson when Jackson visited the team this week. Other players remained in the tunnel while the anthem was played.

"But as a man I've got to stand for something".

Malcolm Jenkins has resumed a habit he had discontinued for awhile last season during the national anthem.

The players' union balked at not being included in the decision-making process regarding the rule, so the National Football League backed off and said it would work with the players to formulate a new rule.

The league noted that while players won't be disciplined, it expects all players on the field to stand during the presentation of the flag and the anthem.

The NFL added that they "remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities".
