Adam Gase will support Jets players who choose to kneel during the national anthem, something he has done in his career as a head coach. But Gase is uncertain whether he will join the protests.

“I’m here to support the players,” Gase told reporters Friday, via Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report. “We’ve got a long way to go before we play a game. There will be a lot of discussions before then.”

Texans coach Bill O’Brien has committed to kneeling with his players, and Panthers coach Matt Rhule said he is considering it.

Colin Kaepernick began the kneeling movement in 2016 to protest social injustice and police brutality. The former 49ers quarterback has remained a free agent since the 2017 offseason.

  1. Christ man. Take a stand one way or the other. And we expect you to be a leader of men? No wonder this guy was a fiasco in MIA and is flailing in NY.

  2. Let’s at least be honest about that last paragraph of article. Colin Kaepernick started the kneeling movement to protest social injustice against African Americans and police brutality against African Americans. None of the people involved from Kaepernick to Malcolm Jenkins to LeBron have yet to stand for any injustices against any other races. So please stop pretending they care about anything else. More respect if they just came out and admitted such.

  3. Great to see a few coaches do the right thing.

    Hoping more will back the peaceful protest.

  4. Seriously… it necessary for this to become a litmus test for everyone associated with the NFL?

  5. Gase has to otherwise he’s getting fired. So stick to something trendy. Thats gonna save my job.

  6. Take a kneel and go home. Nobody wants to watch the Not for long league anymore.
