Baker Mayfield is the latest to join the group of players and coaches that will kneel during the National Anthem this upcoming season.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback responded to a fan begging him to tell Browns fans that he won’t be joining others in kneeling in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, but was denied with “eat your heart out. I absolutely am.”
