Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes is upset with Jim Kelly by accusing the Hall of Fame quarterback for attempting to divide the team by publicly criticizing LeSean McCoy for how he protested during the national anthem on Sunday.
The mayor of Jacksonville, Florida, said it's stupid not to stand for the national anthem but protected by the U.S. Constitution a day after more than a dozen Jaguars players took a knee during the Star Spangled Banner at a London game.
During President Donald Trump's speech at a rally in Huntsville, Ala. on Sept. 22, 2017, he called out NFL players who sit during the national anthem. Teresa Kaepernick, Colin Kaepernick's mom, commented on Trump's remarks via Twitter. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell also responded to Trump through a statement calling the president's comments "divisive."
