Texans owner Bob McNair clarified that he said a remark
about “inmates running in the prison’’ but he was talking about the players who continue to sit down and kneel during the national anthem, but the league offices have been making some decisions about whether they think this is okay or not.
McNair’s comments were posted on ESPN article on Friday to inspire players to walk out of practice two players walked out of practice one of them was Texans Wide Receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Bill O'Brien, head coach of the Ho
uston Texans, backed some of the players on practice. Then Bob McNair decided to make a meeting with the team before they headed to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.
A couple of weeks ago owners in the NFL had a meeting to support their causes ,under the criticizing eager of Donald Trump about NFL players, owners and fans to stand during the national anthem.
On Saturday Eagles Cornerback Malcolm Jenkins invited McNair to the meeting to see if Colin Kaepernick would come to the meeting to explain his situation about him and what is he still working on his game even though nobody hasn’t sign him .
But Kaepernick’s lawyer said that he never got a invite to the meeting so that might be the reason he didn’t attend the meeting.
“I’m not sure why a press release was sent saying there's a meeting when there’s no confirmation the NFL would attend the meeting, Eric Reid said the current safety of the 49ers.
Kaepernick’s attendance would have been noticed. But now he is a free agent, he’s been unable to get a new contract with a NFL team. This month, he fueled a grievance that claimed teams to avoid signing Kaepernick.
