Three Miami Dolphins players who have continued their protests during the playing of the national anthem — tight end Julius Thomas, defensive back Michael Thomas and receiver Kenny Stills — are expected to be in New York Tuesday to meet with league owners and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on the topic of those contentious protests.
The three Dolphins will join dozens of other players invited to the meeting.
The Miami players have lately accepted the Dolphins team policy of staying in the locker room during the playing of America?s anthem while the rest of their teammates have stood on the sideline prior to kickoff. The three then rejoin the team after the anthem is over.
Stills also displayed a clenched fist ?celebration? after he caught a TD pass Sunday in Miami?s 20-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
