Del Rio: According to Lynch, He's Always Sat During National Anthem

Oakland Raiders K.J. Brent runs the ball after catching a pass during practice at the team's training facility in Napa Calif. on Wednesday Aug. 9 2017

Lynch was in uniform but did not play in the game, and photos show Lynch sitting on a cooler and holding a banana while the anthem played.

Whether you agree with the protesting that's been done by NFL players across the league or you don't, Lynch taking a seat during the national anthem is a note-worthy matter.

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch remained seated during the national anthem prior to the team's 20-10 loss to the Cardinals in their preseason opener. His locker was cleared by the time media was granted access to the locker room, multiple reporters said. Lynch voiced support for Kaepernick while speaking to talk-show host Conan O'Brien previous year, and Saturday's sit-down came right after racially-motivated protests and violence recently took place in Charlottesville, Va.

"I said 15 plays", Arians told Palmer.

The coach said that he told Lynch "just so you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem but I'm going to respect you as a man".

It is noteworthy however, that Del Rio used words like 'you, ' and 'we.' Clearly drawing a line and a division between Lynch and the rest of the squad when it comes to the issue of protest.

"I thought we ran the ball really well". Raiders linebackers Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith joined in early a year ago, by standing through the anthem with a raised fist before a game at Tennessee. While that may not have been Del Rio's intent, that's a far cry from some of the more supportive rhetoric the 49ers gave Colin Kaepernick when he began his protest.

Del Rio added that the protest was a "non-issue" for him as a coach.
