Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall voiced his objection to the NFL's anthem policy that was announced at Wednesday's owners meetings. "So it's ironic to me that President of the United States is contradicting what our country was really built on".

"It's just typical of the National Football League, they are just playing to their fanbase". If they choose to protest by kneeling or sitting, their team will be fined by the NFL. "Maybe you shouldn't be in this country". "But still I think it's good you have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. But my opinion is this: I'm a Raven, and what we do inside these lines is what I'm anxious about".

However, players are given the option of staying in the locker room during the national anthem, without facing the possibility of fines.

"I think it's just typical of the NFL", Kerr responded when asked about the league's new policy after shootaround Thursday in advance of Game 5 of the conference finals. It requires that all players stand if they are on the field when the national anthem is played.
