The tweet drew tens of thousands of comments and likes from people who both shared and disagreed with President Trump's views.

". [A] handful of pardons will not address the sort of systemic injustice that National Football League players have been protesting", the letter stated.

WTVJ Miami reported that Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn raised his fist during the song.

"I try not to discuss it with too many guys, because I don't want guys to feel pressured into doing anything", Jenkins said.

Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jennkis went so far as to hold up a series of signs outlining his message earlier this summer.

The rule would have fined teams whose players protested during the anthem, but allowed the teams the choice to wait in the locker room or tunnel while the anthem was performed.

The NFL's first full slate of preseason games kicked off last night and there were plenty of eyes on the sidelines as the national anthem played in stadiums across the country.

However, he's also been criticized recently for questioning the intelligence of several notable African Americans - including CNN anchor Don Lemon and California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!"

It's been two years since Kaepernick made his stand, and there have been individual protests and team protests on a mass-scale ever since. Known as the United States National Anthem protests, take a knee protests began in 2016, when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick protested racial inequality and police brutality by sitting, then kneeling during the National Anthem that is played before the start of games. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define.

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

In other games Thursday, four Jaguars players were not on the field when the anthem was played before their home game against New Orleans, and team officials said it would be up to the players to explain why they weren't on the field. The league chose to put a temporary hold on the implementation of that policy while it works with the NFL Players Association toward a resolution.

The NFL added that they "remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities".
