Rishard Matthews Would Rather Quit Than Be Forced To Stand

Matthews' stance came in response to a question via quitter that asked: "If NFL makes new rule on anthem will you still stay in locker room and face the fine/penalty?"

On Thursday afternoon, Matthews was asked by Matt Parker, a local Nashville producer, via Twitter if he would continue to remain in the locker room during the anthem if the National Football League created a rule requiring players to stand or face a penalty.

Rishard Matthews made the comment on Twitter earlier Thursday but has since deleted the tweet.

The reaction to the memo was such at the National Football League and NFLPA issued a joint statement, with some members of the union due to be present at next week's owners meetings.

The wide receiver was originally responding to reports of the NFL making it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.

The Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The receiver explained he didn't want his protest seen as a "publicity stunt". It should be worth noting that the players are peacefully protesting, though, and they aren't protesting the national anthem itself. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country". It's your right to stand or sit down.
