Texans Won't Pursue Free Agents Who Knelt During Anthem

For one team, they could play a role in how they approach this off-season.

Last season, Texans owner Bob McNair said "we can't have the inmates running the prison" during a meeting of NFL owners about players who protest by kneeling during the national anthem, according to The State newspaper.

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. But given the fact that the Texans didn't sign Kaepernick after Deshaun Watson went down-and Kaepernick's lawyer used the franchise as part of his collusion case against the league-that seems like an unlikely pairing.

"I have no intention of forcing our players to stand during the anthem and I regret that my comments have been misconstrued", Ross said in a statement.
