All this might change after the NFL claims they might make players stand during the anthem. According to CBS 46, Tennessee Titans receiver Rishard Mathews will not stay in the locker and doesn’t want to pay the fine if the NFL makes players stand. He even mentioned in a tweet that if this new rule is made official he will quit.
The controversy between Trump and NFL players continue and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “Move past this controversy. (It) is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.” Since the news has come out Matthews has deleted his tweets.
