|As NFL owners prepare to launch two days of meetings that could result in changes to the existing anthem policy Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , the politician who turned embers into a brush fire last September revisited the controversy on Monday.
President Donald Trump made indirect reference to the phenomenon of protests during the anthem as 2017 NASCAR Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. visited the White House.
“At every NASCAR race you will see thousands of patriotic Americans, from the grandstands to the pit stalls, proudly waving our flag,” President Trump said, via SportingNews.com. “One thing I know about NASCAR聽and I will tell you Womens Patrick Mahomes Jersey , they do indeed stand for the playing of the national anthem . . . .聽Somebody said, 鈥楳aybe you shouldn鈥檛 say that. It鈥檚 going to be controversial.’ I said, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 OK. NASCAR isn鈥檛 going to mind it at all.'”
While the President stopped short of referencing the NFL expressly, the remarks serve as a reminder that the issue remains on simmer, with the potential of exploding as the 2018 season approaches — especially with the midterm elections only two months later. Thus Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey , as Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports recently explained, some NFL owners will try this week to come up with a solution that ends the protests once and for all.
Any effort to placate President Trump will serve only to bolster the theory that the collusion keeping both Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid unemployed traces not to racism (as some incorrectly characterize the argument) but to a shared concern among those who own the teams that doing business with someone like Kaepernick will invite more criticism from President Trump and, in return, more derision from a base of supporters that will remain loyal to him, no matter what.
The lingering problem for the NFL is that the league gave players the right to protest Kirk Cousins Jersey Big , confirmed it after Kaepernick was first spotted not standing for the anthem, and reiterated it after President Trump challenged owners to “get that son of a bitch of the field” if/when kneeling happens. It could be too late to unilaterally take that right away.
The Chicago Bears have agreed to one-year contracts with punter Pat O'Donnell, tight end Daniel Brown and quarterback Tyler Bray.
A sixth-round draft pick by the Bears in 2014, O'Donnell is their all-time leader with a 44.9-yard career gross average. He averaged a franchise-record 47 yards per punt last season, with 27 of 87 inside the 20.
Brown has 29 catches for 253 yards since joining the Bears in October 2016. Bray figures to back up Mitchell Trubisky and newcomer Chase Daniel after spending five seasons in Kansas City. New Bears coach Matt Nagy was his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator with the Chiefs.
The Bears announced the moves Friday.
