One of the craziest weekends in NFL history won't be remembered for what took place on the field, as wild as it was. Week 3 saw upsets galore, down-to-the-wire finishes, a couple overtime contests, and some extremely questionable refereeing.
The President of the United States has made his opinion very clear: players who refuse to stand at attention for the national anthem should be fired. Period.
What would happen if he got his way? Well, we put together a list of the NFL players who engaged in peaceful protest during the national anthem this weekend, either through taking a knee or raising a fist. These players would be looking for new teams if President Trump had anything to say about it.
Not included on this list are players who locked arms with their teammates, showed support by placing a hand on kneeling players' shoulder pads, or abstained from the anthem altogether by staying in the locker room.
The Seahawks, Titans, and Steelers stayed in the locker room for the national anthem, with one notable exception: Pittsburgh offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger, who came out to salute the flag.
No team completely abstained from protest.
This is an incomplete list, compiled from multiple sources. It may contain inaccuracies. I cross referenced and looked through photos to corroborate as much of these names as possible, but if you have evidence that someone was left off or added erroneously, please let me know.
