Is the Entire Seahawks Team Planning to Sit the National Anthem This Sunday?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the strongest personalities on the Seattle Seahawks roster are coming to lend support to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

According to Bob Condett of the Seattle Times via Doug Baldwin, the Seahawks could take part in a team-wide anthem protest put together by the wide receiver and Bobby Wagner.

Wagner said he didn’t know if he would sit down during the anthem, but made it clear that, “anything we want to do, it’s not going to be individual. It’s going to be a team thing. That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”

After some more planning and time to think, along with conversation with Nate Boyer—the former Green Beret who spent last summer on the Seahawks—Seattle is now planning a more unify demonstration.

During a call with Fox Sports Radio, Boyer offered more details about the team’s thinking and it’s likely that the demonstration is a move to unify the country, but definitely provide tribute to the military.

“It has to be a team-first approach in order to get anything done,” Boyer said. “Whether it is [Colin] Kaepernick’s mission changing policy or changing things on the field, you have to be unified. Showing a common goal between different walks of life is how you influence change.

“I spoke with the players, and they realize that 9/11 is a very important day in our nation’s history. The Seahawks, and probably every team, will be honoring those who serve in camouflage and also those in blue who served on such a difficult day. Shortly after 9/11, our country seemed more unified than I had ever experienced and was the most unified it has been since I have been alive. Since that date, we have grown farther apart in our unity. Standing together this Sunday is key to making progress. What the team will do is a powerful sign of unification.

It looks like we won’t know anything until Sunday.
