Multiple Cleveland Browns take a knee during national anthem

  • Giants Eli Manning hasn't lost his competitiveness with age

The New York Giants finished 11-5 and in the post season whereas the Cleveland Browns won just one game all season and wound up with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer was among a group of players who stood next to the huddle and punter Britton Colquitt also pointed to the sky.

Browns coach Hue Jackson drew criticism last week when he seemed to indicate he didn't want his players to protest.

Several NFL players, including former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Eagles cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, have protested the "Star-Spangled Banner" to place a spotlight on police brutality and other racial injustices. Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch and Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett were among those who protested August 12-13. And later that same night, Seahawks center Justin Britt placed his hand on Michael Bennett's shoulder while Bennett took a knee during the national anthem prior to the Seahawks preseason game against the Vikings.

Jackson said he understood why in this politically charged climate some players might not stand for the flag, but he hoped his players would not be among them. On the final day of training camp last week, Jackson sought to clarify his comments with a more than two-minute prepared statement, saying, "I respect and support their right for peaceful protest; a right afforded to every American. We've always made it clear to our players that they should embrace the platform they have as an National Football League player to improve our community and use their platform in a positive, thoughtful and respectful manner".

"I'm disheartened that I gave anyone that impression because I did not speak with enough clarity", Jackson added.

No Giants player was seen protesting the national anthem.
