In a statement about Tuesday’s meeting between the NFL, NFLPA, players and team owners in New York, the NFL and NFLPA said that everyone in the NFL community has “a tremendous respect” for the national anthem but it doesn’t sound like the anthem was a focal point of the meeting. Albert Breer of reports that no rules changes regarding players being required to stand for the playing of the anthem were discussed and 49ers safety Eric Reid told Breer’s colleague Jenny Vrentas that the anthem was a small piece of what was discussed.
