Eagles Player Changes Mind About Not Standing During The National Anthem

Tavarres is an underrated free agent and I am sure he rescinded this action because of this.

From ESPN:

Philadelphia Eagles rookie linebacker Myke Tavarres has decided to join Colin Kaepernick in sitting out the national anthem.Speaking to ESPN on Monday, Tavarres said he almost sat during the anthem ceremony preceding Saturday night’s game against the Colts in Indianapolis, and he plans to follow through when the Eagles host the New York Jets in their preseason finale Thursday night.

“Oh, I thought about it. Believe me, I definitely thought about it,” Tavarres said of sitting Saturday night. “And usually I’m front and center on the line with the rest of the guys, and that’s since pre-K all the way up. Saturday’s game, I stepped back, I was in the background, and it didn’t feel right to me at all, and so I will be taking a stand — or sitting down — for the fourth game.” 

I don’t know if I can call him a smart guy for changing his mind. I know he must have an ulterior motive regarding this move, but who knows. Maybe he had a change of heart. Either way I think we need to stop giving these guys the time of day, and focus on real problems.
