Marshawn Lynch sat during the national anthem before the Raiders’ preseason opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night.

Lynch rarely talks to the media but he has voiced his support for Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem to draw attention to what he saw as incidents of police brutality against people of color.

Kaepernick remains a free-agent and many have called for a boycott believing he’s being blackballed from the league.

Lynch, who did not play in the game, sat on an orange cooler, arms on his knees, while all others around him stood.
