  • Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Lynch, who has vocally supported Kaepernick in the past, a former quarterback on the biggest rival during Lynch's time in Seattle with the Seahawks, sat down as the national anthem played on Saturday before kickoff.

Raiders' running back Marshawn Lynch remained seated during the National Anthem before Saturday night's exhibition opener against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Az.

During an appearance on the Conan O'Brien show almost a year ago, Lynch was asked by the host about former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the anthem and gave his support. "So, I mean, my take on it is [expletive]'s got to start somewhere, and if that was the starting point - I just hope people open up their eyes to see there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop".
