One of the biggest headlines this NFL Preseason was the act by San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in protest failed to stand for the national anthem before a preseason game.
It’s been one of, if not the most talked about story line in the NFL all summer, even though it didn’t even happen to involve a play. Now the Seahawks are talking about a potential team protest, and wide out Doug Baldwin and LB Bobby Wagner say the team may do a ‘team’ protest before the game against Miami Sunday at home.
Per Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Doug Baldwin said prior to the team’s practice Wednesday he has “considered” sitting or taking a knee when the national anthem plays prior to their game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, adding that he wants to “get all of my ducks in a row before I do so.”
Wagner also said he hasn’t made a decision about joining in the pregame protest, but he noted that if any protest occurs, the entire Seahawks team would be taking part in it.
“It’s going to be a team thing,” Wagner said. “That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”
Wagner did not provide specifics about the Seahawks’ potential plan, only saying that “whatever we decide to do will be a big surprise.”
