Good for them.
The Houston Texans will reportedly not sign a single player who has protested during the national anthem of games.
Jerome Solomon wrote for the Houston Chronicle:
I spoke with two NFL agents this week who said word is the Texans aren’t interested in any players who participated in pregame kneel-downs in protest of police brutality.
There is no directive within the organization, but it is considered to be understood that as desperate as the Texans are to bring in talent, the pool of potential signees and draftees will not include anyone who has participated in protests or are likely to.
Good for the Texans’ management and ownership if Solomon’s report is accurate. The fans have had enough of the garbage from players refusing to stand for the national anthem, and it’s been reflected in attitude and ratings.
