Eagles, 'Fins players protest during anthem

And in Miami, two Dolphins - Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson - took a knee.

The NFL and NFLPA still have not settled on a resolution for the national anthem policy, and Thursday night when the preseason began for most NFL teams, two players dropped to a knee during the anthem prior to their games.

The president said the players are "unable to define" the cause for which they're promoting, and then threatened that players who do not "stand proudly" for the national anthem would be "suspended without pay". The Dolphins issued a statement before training camp saying all options regarding the team's policy remain open.

After confusion, the National Football League made a decision to take its new policy back to the drawing board and consult with the players association. It happened before the Dolphins game against the Buccaneers, and former Chief Albert Wilson was one of the players who took a knee.

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".

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans".

Jefferson, Jackson and Brown were among the Seahawks players who sat during the anthem last season. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.

The deaths of two of its fighters could trigger an escalation between Hamas and Israel. The military released footage that it said was of the incident.

"I got beliefs, I did what I did".

"This is not going to become a distraction in Jacksonville, this is not going to be a distraction for this team".

"I think at any point in time when you try to represent the voices of people that aren't heard and you're getting support and people are looking up to you, you want to make sure that you're a good steward of that, that support and those people who are behind you", he said.

"Am I doing the right thing?"

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

A new NFL policy announced earlier this year by league Commissioner Roger Goodell requires players to stand during the national anthem but gives them on an option of remaining in the locker room during the pregame performance of the song if they choose.
