Justin Britt stood next to him with a hand on Bennett’s shoulder in a show of support. Running back Thomas Rawls was on the other side doing the same. Defensive end Cliff Avril sat with Bennett for the tail end of the anthem apparently unsure what the hell to do.

Green Bay Packers: Tight end Martellus Bennett stood but did so with his right fist in the air during the anthem.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix did the opposite of the disgraceful NFL players and helped hold the giant American flag at midfield before the game. Good work Ha Ha.

Bennett said before the game, “I like to speak through my art, my words and things like that. I wouldn’t be surprised if I draw another political cartoon or some s—, but other than that, I don’t know right now. I’m more of a spur-of-the-moment-type guy, type of thing.”

Los Angeles Rams linebacker Robert Quinn raised his right fist in the air during the anthem joining Bennett in what may become their new protest?

San Francisco 49ers Safety Eric Reid took a knee like Kaepernick for the national anthem. Ten teammates circled Reid with a hand on his shoulder as he knelt.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat for the anthem like the malcontent he is.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins raised a fist while defensive end Chris Long and safety Rodney McLeod put their hands on his back for “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The Cleveland Browns didn’t protest, instead they joined police officers, firefighters, EMTs and the military as they ran onto the field.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters sat on an equipment table for most of the national anthem.
