When it comes to the issue of players protesting during the national anthem [url=http://www.falconscheapstore.com/julio-jones-jersey-cheap]Julio Jones Jersey[/url] , few have provided more thoughtful, reasonable explanations about the situation than Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin. On Wednesday, however, Baldwin didn’t have much to say after the new took away the players’ right to protest.
“I’m not surprised,” Baldwin told ESPN 710 in Seattle. The NFL cares about one thing and that’s the NFL. That’s the bottom line. . . . I’m not surprised, I’m disappointed.”
Baldwin also described the rule as tone deaf, and he said he’s been in contact with Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Last year, Baldwin raised a point that will get even more focus now that players and league personnel are required to respect the flag.
“We鈥檙e not talking about people who are in the stands drunk during the national anthem with their hats still on [url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/nick-nelson-jersey-cheap]Nick Nelson Jersey[/url] , yelling at players, cussing during the National Anthem,鈥?Baldwin said in August, more than a month before President Trump’s comments turned the NFL upside down. 鈥淲e鈥檙e not talking about that.”
We’ll be talking about it plenty as the 2018 season approaches, because the conduct of fans who helped pressure the league into unilaterally removing the players’ right to protest, to the extent it hasn’t been an issue in the past, will be now.
And it means everyone needs to be out of the restrooms, away from the concession stands [url=http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/allen-bailey-jersey-cheap]Allen Bailey Jersey[/url] , out of the concourse areas, at their seats or in the aisles, hats off, hands on hearts, phones in pockets, mouths shut (unless singing or trying to), and solemn respect and reverence for the anthem and the flag. And if teams and players will be subject to fines and other punishment if they fail to comply, fans should be subject to ejection [url=http://www.falconscheapstore.com/wes-schweitzer-jersey-cheap]Wes Schweitzer Jersey[/url] , too.
If you think that sounds ridiculous and unacceptable, congratulations. You’re dangerously close to getting it.
The Tennessee Titans keep wrapping up their own players with defensive lineman DaQuan Jones the latest to reach agreement on a new deal keeping him on the roster.
The Titans announced Wednesday that they have agreed on a multi-year deal with Jones after reaching a new deal to keep right guard Josh Kline and signing defensive end David King to a one-year deal earlier in the day.
Tennessee also announced they tendered a contract to left guard Quinton Spain, a restricted free agent.
Financial terms on the deals were not released.
A fourth-round pick out of Penn State in 2014, Jones has started 45 of his 51 games, and the 6-foot-4, 322-pound lineman was playing his best with a career-high 3 sacks before tearing a bicep that put him on injured reserve Dec. 4 .
General manager Jon Robinson claimed Kline off waivers from New England in September 2016. Kline has started 30 games at right guard for Tennessee on a line that allowed the third fewest sacks (63) and blocked for the third most rushing yards (4,020) in the NFL.
An undrafted free agent from Kent State, Kline started 18 of 33 games in New England and won the 2015 Super Bowl.
The Titans agreed to terms Tuesday with a pair of former Patriots . The deals with cornerback Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis will be signed once free agency begins.
Spain [url=http://www.billscheapstore.com/dion-dawkins-jersey-cheap]Dion Dawkins Jersey[/url] , undrafted out of West Virginia, has started 33 of his 35 games played over the past three seasons for the Titans.
King signed a one-year deal after being poised to become an exclusive rights free agent after playing seven games with four tackles and a sack for Tennessee. The Titans picked him up last September in a trade with Kansas City, and King was a seventh-round pick by Philadelphia in 2013 out of Oklahoma.
