Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says he won’t force his players to stand for the national anthem Rashaad Penny Jersey , even though he believes kneeling is a counterproductive way to promote social justice.
Ross’ comments Tuesday in a statement released by the Dolphins came after the New York Daily News reported that he said all of the team’s players will stand for the anthem in 2018. Ross was in New York on Monday to be honored by the Jackie Robinson Foundation and receive its ROBIE Lifetime Achievement Award.
”I have no intention of forcing our players to stand during the anthem, and I regret that my comments have been misconstrued,” Ross said in his statement.
”I’ve shared my opinion with all our players: I’m passionate about the cause of social justice, and I feel that kneeling is an ineffective tactic that alienates more people than it enlists.”
Colin Kaepernick started the NFL anthem movement when he was with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. President Donald Trump has criticized the movement, saying it’s disrespectful to service members.
”I know our players care about the military and law enforcement too Josh Rosen Jersey ,” Ross said in his statement, ”because I’ve seen the same players who are fighting for social justice engaging positively with law enforcement and the military. I care passionately that the message of social justice resonates far and wide, and I will continue to support and fund efforts for those who fight for equality for all.”
Dolphins players Julius Thomas, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills knelt during the anthem before games last season. At one point coach Adam Gase established a team rule requiring players either to stand for the anthem or stay in the tunnel.
When protesting players told Gase waiting in the tunnel was interfering with their game preparation, he relaxed the rule and allowed them to resume their sideline kneeling.
Stills was the Dolphins’ nominee for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award Andy Dalton Youth Jersey , which honors involvement in the community and performance on the field. He’s expected to be back with Miami with 2018, but Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas are less likely to return.
Su’a Cravens already appears to be relishing in his change of scenery and his chance at a fresh start.
In a video posted on his Twitter account , the song ”A Whole New World” from the Disney movie ”Aladdin” played in the background before a smiling Cravens let out a loud ”Woo!” Underneath was a caption that read: ”Broncos!!!! Here I come!!”
The safety who contemplated retirement last season was acquired Wednesday by Denver from the Washington Redskins, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams had not announced the deal.
As part of the deal, the Broncos and Redskins flipped fourth- and fifth-round picks from this year’s draft. In addition Dallas Goedert Eagles Jersey , Denver sends a fifth-rounder to Washington – also from this year – and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2020.
Cravens was a second-round pick by Washington in 2016 following a standout career at Southern California. He played 11 games his rookie season, with one sack and an interception. Expected to be a starter last season, the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Cravens was sidelined last August following knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus.
Soon after, things began to grow more complicated. Cravens had to be talked out of retiring in early September during a meeting with team President Bruce Allen. Later Dallas Goedert Youth Jersey , the 22-year-old was placed on the reserve/left squad list.
His then-agent announced in December that Cravens had been cleared to resume football activities and planned to play next season. Fadde Mikhail said in a statement then that Cravens suffered from post-concussion syndrome, was cleared Dec. 7 and no longer has symptoms.
Along with his video, Cravens also posted on his social media account : ”I was a Bronco back in my high school days. I guess some things never change.” And this: ”Pack your bag kids (we’re) going snowboarding.”
He joins a Broncos defensive backfield that includes safeties Darian Stewart, Justin Simmons, Will Parks and Jamal Carter.
The Broncos are making big changes this offseason on the heels of a 5-11 season. They recently added quarterback Case Keenum Cheap Harold Landry Jersey , who led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship game. Keenum signed a two-year, $36 million deal that includes $25 million in guarantees.
Denver also traded elite cornerback Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams and dealt quarterback Trevor Siemian to the Vikings.
The Broncos have the fifth overall pick in the upcoming draft, which they could very well use to pick up another quarterback.
