NFL Players Respond To New National Anthem Policy

The NFL approved a new national-anthem policy in response to ongoing player protests in the 2017 season. The new rules dictate that players and personnel on the field should stand for the anthem. Those who wish not to may choose instead to remain in the locker room during the pregame ceremony. Teams with players who don't "show appropriate respect" for the anthem will be fined. Across the league, players were asked for their reaction to the new policy.
