The Houston Texans are strongly denying the claim that the team will not sign any free agents who took a knee during the national anthem.
A column in the Houston Chronicle on Saturday said, "there is no directive within the organization, but it is considered to be understood that ... the pool of potential signees and draftees will not include anyone who has participated in protests or are likely to". The Texans have commented on the situation and refuted this entire story.
The Texans had their own controversy during the season after team owner Bob McNair said that "we can't have the inmates running the prison" during a meeting of NFL owners about players who protest by kneeling during the national anthem. He later apologized, but his comments caused a divide between ownership and players, with most of the team taking a knee the following Sunday in protest. So, if the Texans truly are steering clear of players who made on-field protests, those players might not want to be a part of an organization that doesn't accept their social activeness in the first place.
During that game, many Houston players took a knee and linked arms for the national anthem, after staging nearly no such demonstrations before then.
At the time, it wasn't lost on many players that McNair was a major supporter of President Trump.
Trump triggered an outcry after sharply criticizing players who kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to draw attention to social issues. "I'm 100 percent with these players". "That would be a mistake".
