Rishard Matthews tweets he's done if NFL makes national anthem rule

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted that he'd retire from football if he was forced to stand for the anthem

A native of Jackson, Miss.

Titans receiver Rishard Matthews threatened to quit if the NFL makes it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.

Matthews, a sixth-year pro out of Nevada, deleted his tweet response to Parker, but not before the news producer saved it for the whole world to see.

Trump has repeatedly criticized players and teams who kneel during the anthem to protest, saying that any players who refused to stand should be fired.

I have heard a number of people maintain that National Football League players should protest on their own time and not on the job.

The post went on to clarify exactly what will be in Battlefront 2's crates and how players can upgrade the game's Star Cards. With the recent Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Beta taking place last weekend, EA has received a lot of feedback about the game.

It was a stance started by Colin Kaepernick, but the protests became a national debate and an NFL wide phenomenon when president Donald Trump called protesting players sons of bitches. "The players jointly decided this was the best course of action". Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and player leadership will attend league meetings next week to discuss how to progress on social issues and discuss the subject of protesting during the anthem in a larger scale.

Earlier this month, the Seattle Seahawks and Titans stayed off the field during the anthem. Should be really interesting to if he ends up following through on his threat or not.

Matthews announced September 28 he was donating $75,000 to a group of "organizations working in oppressed communities".

Matthews, who turned 28 on Thursday, is in the second year of a three-year, $15 million contract signed in the 2016 offseason. They tried to have a silent protest, and look what happened. "You have that right, that freedom of speech, and you're not allowing that to happen".
