Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said yesterday he intended to take my fine and continue to protest during the national anthem.
But perhaps because the fine isn’t immediately his to pay, the Titans want to talk to him about his plans before the start of the season.
Casey made his remarks while on a promotional trip to England. He has never kneeled during the anthem, but has raised a fist afterward. No other Titans players has kneeled either, and Underwood was careful to point out there may be some confusion about that.
Underwood said he wasn’t disappointed in anything Casey said, but does want to talk to him when he returns, underscoring what a sensitive topic this is for teams.
Owens insisted that he’s not trying to offend the members of his newest team.
They’re making the narrative more so about me offending the Hall of Famers, and that has nothing to do with it, Owens said. I respect all of those Hall of Famers that have gone in before me and going in with me and after me. It has nothing to do with those Hall of Famers.
Owens has recently said that he’s boycotting the ceremony for the Hall of Famers who have had to wait longer than they should have. But that may have been a narrative fashioned in the wake of the criticism; the real Cheap Dream Team Jerseys reason(s) may be more related to: (1) the unwillingness of any of his former teams to throw a lavish party for him in Canton; and (2) the over-the-top manner in which some voters attacked Owens to justify his omission from the Hall of Fame on his first two tries. Throw in Randy Moss getting in on the first try, and that probably was enough to get T.O. to decide on a no-show.
