Raiders Marshawn Lynch sits for national anthem

By Field Level Sports | Sep 11, 2018

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest NFL player to take a stand by sitting during the playing of the national anthem before his team’s season opener against the visiting Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.

Lynch also sat for the anthem throughout last season, raising the ire of Donald Trump.

“Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!” Trump said in November on Twitter.

Before Miami’s season opener at home against the Tennessee Titans, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson knelt during the anthem, while defensive end Robert Quinn raised his fist.

Lynch joined the Raiders last year after sitting out the 2016 season had 891 yards on 207 carries.
