Rishard Matthews says he'd quit National Football League if forced to stand for anthem

Titans' Rishard Matthews tweets he'll 'be done playing' if players forced to stand
Rishard Matthews is fully committed to his decision to stay inside during the national anthem, stating that he would rather quit football than be forced to change his protest over social issues.
Matthews' response Thursday to a reporter from his verified account was captured by a screen grab.
In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.
Matthews deleted the tweet shortly after, but a screenshot had already been saved by the news producer.
Matthews played four seasons with the Dolphins from 2012 to 2015. His protest was launched shortly after President Donald Trump's attacks toward National Football League players who choose to protest. This was the first Sunday after Trump made his comments.
Matthews announced September 28 he was donating $75,000 to a group of "organizations working in oppressed communities".
"Moving forward, I don't want this to be a publicity stunt", Matthews told ESPN last month. The protests started after former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling to protest police mistreatment of African Americans. They tried to have a silent protest, and look what happened. This is a movement that started as a protest against the prejudice and oppression many minorities in America face - especially as it relates to police brutality. It's your right to stand or sit down.
