NFL owner: 'Stand for the national anthem or you're fired'


If any of his players kneel during the national anthem, don't expect to see them back next week.

Last year, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines by refusing to stand for the national anthem. Kaepernick is currently unemployed — and Jones isn't going to tolerate a copy cat on his team.

"I got to give a big pat on the back to our entire team, our coaching staff, our entire organization. We strongly, strongly support the flag in every way we support — and it's almost ridiculous to be saying it — the people who for generations and generations have given it all up so that we can get out here and show off in front of millions of people on television," Jones told local radio station 105.3 The Fan last season.

Players would be wise to trust Jones' conviction — and respect his willingness to fire anyone.
