Former USC defensive tackle Jurrell Casey is a three-time Pro Bowl selection with the Tennessee Titans. Casey told CNN he would risk being fined and protest during the national anthem at NFL games this season.
“I’m going to take a fine this year, why not?” the three-time Pro-Bowler told CNN. “I’m going to protest during the flag. That’s what I’m going to say now.”
The new NFL policy will subject teams to fines if one of their players protests during the anthem. Players are allowed to remain in the locker room if they choose.
