Titans WR Rishard Matthews calls since-deleted tweet 'a bad decision'

The answer came after a WSMV producer asked Matthews if he'd stay in the locker room during the anthem if the National Football League created a rule.

Matthews answered a tweet that asked: "If NFL makes new rule on anthem will you still stay in locker room and face the fine/penalty?"

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews said on Twitter that if a new rule is enforced, he's calling it quits.

Matthews' tweet followed Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy vowing that there would be an "uproar" if players are forced to stand.

After the President began to attack National Football League players about it, Matthews donated $75,000 to organizations doing work in oppressed communities. But Matthews told the Tennessean in May that he had changed his stance on the protests.

"I'm exhausted of hearing, 'Stick to sports.' It comes down to right and wrong in this world", Matthews told ESPN last month.

However, Matthews' father reportedly served in the Marines for 23 years, and his brother was actually killed in Afghanistan while working as a private defense contractor in 2015 after previously serving in Iraq. "I take full responsibility, and that's why it went down right after, but somebody caught me with a screenshot".

"The current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country", Goodell's statement said. President Donald Trump had tweeted the day before that players need to stand or be fired.

Goodell went on to write that the league needs to "move past" the controversy surrounding player protests, adding that the issue will be addressed when the owners meet in NY next week. 'As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week.
