Raiders Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem at preseason NFL game

Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Following in the footsteps of Colin Kaepernick's silent protests a year ago, Lynch sat on a Gatorade cooler during the singing of the anthem, prior to Saturday night's preseason game between the Raiders and the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The first to share the image of Lynch sitting during the anthem was professional photographer Mark J. Rebilas, who also tagged USA TODAY Sports in his Twitter post.

Lynch has spoken to the media just once since coming out retirement and joining the Raiders after a trade with the Seattle Seahawks last spring.

Tom Cruise Has Been Injured On The Set 'Mission: Impossible 6'
The extent of the star's injuries are unknown, as his representatives could not immediately be reached by the Daily News. He is then returned to the rigging he jumped from and pulled away by crew members to safety.

While Lynch did not speak about his decision not to stand, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke with the running back.

"He said, 'This is something I have done for 11 years".

"It's possible that Lynch has skipped the anthem in some settings, but Del Rio's statement made it sound like Lynch has consistently sat out the anthem throughout his career".

American extreme right calls to 'unite' at rally
The Unite the Right rally is being held to protest Charlottesville City Council's decision to remove the Robert E. Amongst the thousands expected to attend the rally are large groups of protesters.

Last year, while sitting with Conan O'Brien, Marshawn discussed Kaepernick's decision to take a knee when the QB was still with the San Francisco 49ers.

"Talked to Marshawn. Wanted to make sure we're on the same page".

Lynch did not play in Saturday's game, and he had left the locker room by the time reporters arrived. "And if you're really not racist then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have". "It's not a form of anything other than me being myself'". "I said, 'So you understand how I feel".

Most say time to end effort to repeal Obama health law
Six in 10 women back Democrats for Congress in 2018, while men back Republicans by a slim 5-point margin. Conservatives in Young's district are angry with the GOP's failure to repeal and replace Obamacare.

It is noteworthy however, that Del Rio used words like 'you, ' and 'we.' Clearly drawing a line and a division between Lynch and the rest of the squad when it comes to the issue of protest. Kaepernick has not signed with a team for the 2017 season amid accusations league owners - denied by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell - are blackballing him.
