Seattle's Jeremy Lane Sat During the National Anthem to Stand Behind Colin Kaepernick

Jeremy Lane of the Seattle Seahawks sat during the National Anthem in Oakland on Thursday as a show of support of Colin Kaepernick. Lane sat around the same time that Kaepernick and Eric Reid were kneeling in San Diego. Via the Seattle Times:

“I don’t mean no disrespect to anybody,’’ he said. “I’m just standing behind what I believe in.’’

Lane said he intends to continue to sit during the anthem “until I feel like justice is being served.’’

Both Pete Carroll and Roger Sherman spoke in support of Lane after the game. Lane, in his 5th year in the league, signed a 4-year, $23 million contract in the offseason.
