The Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans have come to a joint decision on the national anthem. According to MMQB's Albert Breer, both teams will stay in the locker room as the anthem is played. Naturally, the optics will make for a very empty sideline scenario. The players are expected to release a joint statement on the decision, per Breer. The move comes in lieu of President Donald Trump's comments that any player who kneels during the anthem should be fired. Many teams have decided to demonstrate on Sunday but head coach Pete Carroll contends these reactions aren't about fighting Pres. Trump but uniting to foster to change on inequality in the U.S.
