Raiders LB jabs Dak Prescott over anthem protest stance

Dak Prescott

Oakland Raiders linebacker Tahir Whitehead jabbed Dak Prescott over the quarterback’s stance on protests during the national anthem.

The anthem debate remains a hot one as the NFL and NFLPA have yet to come to an agreement on a policy that is satisfying for all. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been outspoken on the matter and wants a policy that makes players appear on the field for the anthem and standing.

Prescott, who is the Cowboys’ quarterback, is not about to cross Jones. He said from training camp on Friday that he does not believe the anthem is the time or venue for a protest.

Whitehead saw/heard Prescott’s comments and responded on Twitter Saturday. He joked that it sounds like Prescott is trying to avoid being controversial to avoid losing endorsements.

Whether protecting endorsements are a motivating factor in his public comments or not is something only Prescott could answer. But what we do know is that the quarterback for America’s Team has a ton of endorsement deals to protect.
