Since the beginning of the 2017 NFL season, many players have either knelt, sat or raised a fist during the American National anthem. Raising controversy around the country. However with the recent celebration of Veterans Day, fewer NFL players have protested during the national anthem. The NFL player association argued and asked the players in order to honor the veterans. Even players such as, Michael Bennett, who has been protesting since the beginning stood during the anthems. However there were three players who still knelt despite the occasion.
