Colin Kaepernick started a movement among a group of NFL players last season when he kneeled during the National Anthem.
Many followed suit, expressing their thoughts in their own way. Now, we can add another player to the list of those to protest during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner: Marshawn Lynch.
In a photo captured by photographer Mark J. Rebilas, Lynch was clearly seen sitting on a cooler prior to tonight's preseason game at the Arizona Cardinals.
Lynch has never been one to shy away from doing things his way.
Though he was known for not speaking to the media while he was a star for the Seahawks, he was still outspoken off the gridiron.
No. 24's silent protest comes following the violent rallies in Charlottesville, Va. this weekend. Torches were used to beat up counter protestors. The situation got so bad, a vehicle even rammed into a crowded group, injuring many.
Lynch's latest move is sure to cause some backlash from Raiders and NFL fans. The veteran RB didn't participate in tonight's preseason game.
He came out of retirement this offseason in order to suit up for Oakland, his hometown team.
