Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: ex-Bears TE Martellus Bennett 'inspiring'

Earlier Tuesday, Trump fired off a fresh salvo in the ongoing controversy, noting the boos from fans in Arizona on Monday night after the entire Dallas Cowboys team kneeled before the anthem was played. It will represent a coming together of players who want the same things that all of us do-freedom, equality, tolerance, understanding, and justice for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly.

Join us this Thursday by locking arms with whoever you're with, stranger or loved one, wherever you are-intertwined and included-in this moment of unification.

President Trump's comments about National Football League owners firing players who disrespect the flag, calling them sons of bitches, drew only a more unified response from players and owners alike, including Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones, a Trump supporter, at Monday night's game in Arizona, standing with his players.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers told reporters Tuesday the team would make the request after it held a meeting.

Rodgers challenged those who argue that players are disrespecting veterans and members of the military with their protests, saying, "It's never been about the military or our men and women in uniform".

"I think that's been the most - surprising isn't the right word, I would say inspiring - to watch him go about his business and to be the kind of teammate he's been so far". "We love them. We're thankful for the opportunity they give us".

This marks the 18th consecutive meeting between the NFC North rivals in which Green Bay enters as the favorite - and the Packers have provided great value for bettors over that time, going 12-5 ATS.

"We've got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society".

The team released a statement on their website Tuesday evening, outlining their intentions and stressing how the game of football brings people together. That said, the Bears have gone under in each of their first three games this season, with the combination of a Mike Glennon-led offense and a stout defense leading to some low-scoring affairs. "This is about unity and love and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people".

According to ESPN, it appears everyone will stand and link arms Thursday, including the three players who sat during the anthem Sunday. He has a position of leadership and he's made the most of it. ...

"We believe it is important to support any of our players who choose to peacefully express themselves with the hope of change for good". Intertwined, we represent the many people who helped build this country, and we are joining together to show that we are ready to continue to build.
