The policy said players would be allowed to stay in the locker room during the anthem if they chose - but if any team personnel did kneel on the field, the team would be fined. "Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define".
Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season, and he also had talks with quarterback Drew Brees about promoting social justice, TMZ reports. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said.
"Most of that money goes to the players anyway", he continued.
However, the National Football League changed course last month and said players wouldn't be penalized, putting their new policy on hold. "We have a lot of police officers in the county who are ex-military".
The NFL issued a statement a few hours later, saying that no discipline would be issued for that while negotiations continue with the league and the NFLPA about a potential new anthem policy. Stills said he and Wilson didn't coordinate their decision to kneel.
