Nine Saints sit for national anthem

(TSX / STATS) -- CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The decision for nine Saints to sit on a bench behind the sideline during the national anthem was a spontaneous choice by those players, New Orleans safety Kenny Vaccaro said.

"I was just sitting on the bench as the game was about to begin and I was like, 'You know what, I am not getting up,'" Vaccaro said. "I asked (safety) Rafael Bush if he was going to get up, and the next thing I knew, everyone was joining us."

The form of protest came after President Donald Trump's recent statement that NFL players who don't stand for the national anthem should be fired.
