The New York Jets’ Jacoby Brissett said fans “were there for the anthem” before he and his teammates joined the team at the start of the anthem.
The players and coach wore black and black jerseys, and the anthem singer performed a song, the New York Post reported.
“That’s how we’re here, and it’s something we’re proud of,” Brisset said.
“There’s nothing better than when you have fans around and cheering you on.
It’s about all of us coming together to get the job done. “
It’s not about us.
It’s about all of us coming together to get the job done.
That’s why I’m here.”
The Jets announced Friday that they will remain in the national anthem until they find a new leader.
The team has remained in the same protest stance throughout the anthem controversy.
“I’m going to continue to stand up for what I believe in,” Briscett said.
