But owners acknowledged throughout the deliberations that there was no explicit or implied agreement for players to stand in exchange for funding.
According to people familiar with the owners’ thinking, some owners would support taking Ben Ijalana Jersey action in the offseason, if the protests last all season, to change the anthem policy for next season and have players remain in the teams’ locker rooms until after the anthem is played. That would be an approach similar to the league’s policy before 2009.
During George’s extended layoff, the All-Star from Palmdale, California, and his Nike team from Beaverton, Oregon, met quarterly around the country to work through feedback, design updates and colors. Whether it was getting an up-close look at his love of fishing, or seeing how close George is with his parents, Paul and Paulette, the added window allowed for both sides to get that much more familiar with each other.

The Patriots proceed to go down by double digits in the fourth quarter. But of course, Mr. Brady engineers a comeback win by torching a ferocious Jaguars defense for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the final period — with a freshly stitched-up throwing hand, to boot.
The Super Bowl won’t be a cakewalk for New England. Actually, I think it will be an excellent game. Philadelphia’s defense, led by the beastly Fletcher Cox, is legit. Lane Johnson has the underdog theme permeating. And how about Nick Foles? Who knew?!!
