Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews will not stay in the locker room or pay a fine if the NFL makes a new rule requiring players to stand for the national anthem at games.

His response on Thursday to a reporter from his verified account was captured by a screen grab. In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.

The key for those two is maintain lane discipline and not allow Rodgers to slip past them when they pin their ears back. This Minnesota Vikings defense matches up really well with Green Bay and what the team tries to do on offense.

Matthews was not available on Thursday after practice before the locker room was closed to reporters.

Mathews told a News 4 producer that if a new rule is put in place, he will quit playing professional football.

In the meantime, he's now in the process of promoting Thor: Ragnarok , which releases later this month. This isn't the first time that Marvel is going to release an official timeline, either.

The protests by Matthews started following a torrent of criticism from President Donald Trump, who attacked players for not standing during the anthem.

Earlier this month, the Seattle Seahawks and Titans stayed off the field during the anthem. Should be really interesting to if he ends up following through on his threat or not.

There have been speculations that the President gave approvals for the two contracts on his sick bed in London. Of course, you know what the Joint Ventures are, with the lOCs, like Chevron, that had to procure.

Last month, Matthews pledged to donate $75,000 to organizations that support oppressed communities. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country". "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong". Rather than directing anger to the fact that protests still are happening, think of why they're still happening.
