When it comes to the issue of players protesting during the national anthem [url=]Nathan Peterman Jersey[/url] , few have provided more thoughtful, reasonable explanations about the situation than Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin. On Wednesday, however, Baldwin didn’t have much to say after the new took away the players’ right to protest.

“I’m not surprised,” Baldwin told ESPN 710 in Seattle. The NFL cares about one thing and that’s the NFL. That’s the bottom line. . . . I’m not surprised, I’m disappointed.”

Baldwin also described the rule as tone deaf, and he said he’s been in contact with Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Last year, Baldwin raised a point that will get even more focus now that players and league personnel are required to respect the flag.

“We鈥檙e not talking about people who are in the stands drunk during the national anthem with their hats still on [url=]Larry Allen Jersey[/url] , yelling at players, cussing during the National Anthem,鈥?Baldwin said in August, more than a month before President Trump’s comments turned the NFL upside down. 鈥淲e鈥檙e not talking about that.”

We’ll be talking about it plenty as the 2018 season approaches, because the conduct of fans who helped pressure the league into unilaterally removing the players’ right to protest, to the extent it hasn’t been an issue in the past, will be now.

And it means everyone needs to be out of the restrooms, away from the concession stands [url=]John Miller Jersey[/url] , out of the concourse areas, at their seats or in the aisles, hats off, hands on hearts, phones in pockets, mouths shut (unless singing or trying to), and solemn respect and reverence for the anthem and the flag. And if teams and players will be subject to fines and other punishment if they fail to comply, fans should be subject to ejection [url=]Dustin Hopkins Jersey[/url] , too.

If you think that sounds ridiculous and unacceptable, congratulations. You’re dangerously close to getting it.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are doing their best to keep their core players together, and now wide receiver Rishard Matthews is the latest to receive a contract extension.

The Titans announced Tuesday they extended Matthews through 2019, a surprising move for a veteran who missed the offseason and has been on the physically unable to perform list this preseason.

“Rishard has had a lot of success since he’s been here,” coach Mike Vrabel said. “I think that’s the plan going forward with everybody. The guys that we think can help us win in the future and win now, we’d like to keep those guys around and extend them.”

Matthews signed with Tennessee in March 2016 after spending the first four seasons of his career with Miami. He’s had his best seasons since joining the Titans.

Since 2016, he has 118 catches for 1 [url=]Demarcus Lawrence Jersey[/url] ,740 yards and 13 touchdowns in Tennessee, and he ranks ninth in the NFL among receivers with at least 100 receptions averaging 14.7 yards per catch.

The receiver has 225 catches for 3,136 yards and 21 touchdowns in his career. Matthews was heading into the final year and due $5 million under the contract he first signed with Tennessee.

Being out with an undisclosed injury meant Vrabel and his assistants had to gauge Matthews off tape of his past two seasons. Vrabel said they feel good about Matthews’ work and where he is at, hoping to see the receiver soon when he’s ready to go.

“He has been very professional with the walk-throughs and the meetings,” Vrabel said.

“Watching from behind the huddle and getting the call while trying to take the mental reps the best that he can and stay away from things. It’s a process, but I think he’s taken it in stride and he’s been a real pro.”
