Trump supports new NFL anthem policy, opposes players staying in locker room
President Trump has weighed in on the NFL’s new national anthem policy, saying the owners took a step in the right direction — but warning that the rule allowing players to remain in the locker room could be problematic.
Marshall will now be catching passes from Russell Wilson and joining a wide receiver corps that includes Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett after Paul Richardson left to sign with the Redskins.
Over a 12-year career with the Broncos, Dolphins, Bears, Jets and Giants, Marshall has hauled in 959 receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns.
The NFL’s new and controversial national anthem directive is suddenly an issue this offseason, and while he has not yet broached the subject with his players, first-year Giants head coach Pat Shurmur says he knows exactly what he will be doing when he hears The Star-Spangled Banner playing before a game.
I know certainly for me it’s very easy, Shurmur said Tuesday after organized team activity practice No. 4 for the Giants.
That’s what he played in college and what he’s been playing in the NFL, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. He starts there, but he plays a lot of things for us, so he’ll be in all the rooms at some point.
When the Cowboys traded for Austin on the final day of the draft, executive vice president Stephen Jones tabbed Austin a web back. Whatever a web back is.
It’s something similar to the role Lance Dunbar played for the Cowboys, only more.
I don’t care what I’m being called as long as I’m playing, Austin said. That’s all that matters. You can call me anything you want as long as I’m playing.
Austin also likely becomes the team’s punt returner, and the Cowboys could try him as a kick returner, too, although he has only 25 kickoff returns in his career.
