Houston Texans head coach and general manager Bill O'Brien told the Houston Chronicle that he would kneel with players during the national anthem this coming NFL season.
“Yeah, I’ll take a knee,” O'Brien told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “I'm all for it. The players have a right to protest, a right to be heard and a right to be who they are. They’re not taking a knee because they’re against our flag. They’re taking a knee because they haven’t been treated equally in this country for over 400 years.”
A spokesperson for the Texans told CNN that O’Brien’s remarks to the Chronicle are accurate.
