Houston Texans deny claim they won't sign free agents who took knee

Posted March 08, 2018

At least one NFL team is putting its foot-down after an entire season of professional athletes choosing to "take a knee" during the performance of the U.S. national anthem; intentionally avoiding free-agents who disrespected the American flag.

Two NFL agents told the Houston Chronicle recently that the "word is" that the Texans are not interested in players who participated in pregame kneeling in protest of police brutality.

"All of our players will be standing", the real estate mogul told the newspaper, saying his initial position supporting the players had changed during the furore between US President Donald Trump and National Football League stars which erupted previous year.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also made headlines on the topic when he said he won't be forcing his players to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner despite the fact he doesn't believe kneeling to be an effective form of protest.

The Texans vehemently denied the report in a statement released on Monday night.

In a statement, the Texans said: "A recent report that suggests the Houston Texans would not sign a player who has protested in support of social justice issues is categorically false and without merit". Furthermore, the Texans coaching, personnel, ownership and executive staff hire the employees on the basis of character, talent, reliability and his fitness in the organization.
