Who Were the 17 Patriots Players Who Knelt During the National Anthem?

Monday, September 25, 2017

 

As sports and politics collided this weekend, seventeen New England Patriots players chose to kneel during the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium prior to the game versus the Houston Texans.

While these players knelt, other teammates locked arms during the National Anthem, and many fans booed and chanted "stand up."

The most recent political debate was sparked by President Donald Trump, who on Friday called on NFL owners to fire players who did not stand during the anthem.

Here are the 17 players.
