NFL star Jurrell Casey is going to need a little more than a fine to stop him from protesting during the national anthem. The Tennessee Titans star has promised to exercise his rights once football season starts back up.
In a new interview, Casey announced his intent to accept a penalty in exchange for protesting the flag.
Titans president and CEO Steve Underwood has since addressed Casey’s comments.
