Like five nights ago, Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett sat for the national anthem before a game. Unlike five night ago, he had two teammates with him.
Via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune, tackle Justin Britt and cornerback Jeremy Lane stood near Bennett with a hand on his shoulder during the anthem preceding Friday night’s game against the Vikings.
Bennett sits for the anthem in an effort to bring attention to racial injustice in America. Teammates did not know he’d be sitting before the preseason opener against the Chargers.
