There's no NFL fan across the country who still doesn't have a strong opinion about the protests sweeping the league.


It started off with Colin Kaepernick, who remains unemployed due to the surrounding controversy, but other prominent players across the league have taken up his fight, including Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.


While some people wonder what Bennett is fighting for, it couldn't be more apparent after the powerful Seahawk shared this chilling story on how he was assaulted by police officers following the Mayweather-McGregor fight. 


​​

What a terrifying story. 


As if it weren't already personal.


Whether you agree with his decision to sit during the National Anthem, you have to agree that having a gun to your head would change the way you view the world and the resulting lack of equality that comes with it.


We all know Bennett as one of the most outspoken players in the league, and an activist who never shies away from speaking about the bigger issues. Hopefully, with his platform, he can embo the message he's trying to send.


After hearing this story, it'd be no surprise if Bennett decided not to stand for the rest of the season.
