Dolphins' Kenny Stills would prefer NFL had no anthem policy

July 26, 2018 - 11:17 am

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills, a protester during the national anthem last season, says he would prefer the NFL had no policy on the divisive issue so players could do as they wished.

Following the first practice of training camp Thursday, Stills said he'll wait until a policy is announced to decide what he'll do during the anthem this season.

Stills said the league has a problem with public perception regarding the issue and must "clean up how things are looking." Last week, the league and the players' union issued a joint statement saying the two sides are still working on a resolution..

On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he'll insist his players stand for the anthem.
