It didn’t take long for President Donald Trump to comment on the NFL’s new national anthem policy.
During his Thursday interview on “Fox & Friends,” Trump applauded the changes made by the league and took another jab at those who choose to protest.
“I do not like imposing any club-specific rules. If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be borne by the organization, by me, not the players,” Johnson said. “I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players. Do I prefer that they stand? Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest.
The Lions finished last season with a 9-7 record. They picked Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson in the second round of the draft and signed LeGarrette Blount to a one-year contract, worth a reported $4.5 million, in March.
Bryant, recently cut by the Cowboys, remains unsigned. He played alongside Witten his entire career, but neither will play for Dallas this season. But Witten thinks he knows where Bryant will play.
“I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities. He’s motivated and I think he’s going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers,” Witten said on The Adam Schefter Podcast.
Though the Packers drafted three wide receivers in this year’s NFL draft, they lack established options after releasing Jordy Nelson, who signed with the Raiders.
The Packers return Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, and they signed tight end Jimmy Graham, but Bryant’s ability to pick up first downs and contribute in the red zone could be enticing to quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
