One NFL team makes up half of the players still protesting, kneeling
National anthem protests have died down 15 weeks into the NFL season. However, the players on just one team continue to outnumber those around the rest of the league who are still kneeling. That team is the Seattle Seahawks.
Twelve players knelt for the national anthem ahead of their game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. According to a breakdown by CNS News, only 11 other players among the other 31 teams in the NFL are also continuing to protest.
On Sunday, the only other team with multiple players kneeling was Colin Kaepernick’s former team, the San Francisco 49ers. Kaepernick began the national anthem protest movement at the beginning of the 2016-17 season when he was still the quarterback for the 49ers. The former player turned activist left his contract during the off-season and has not been picked up by another team since.
The Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs each had one player kneel.
