New Orleans Saints tight end Coby Fleener has joined the athlete advisory board of SyncThink, a neurotechnology company that is pioneering the use of eye tracking as a way to objectively measure key impairments related to brain injury of athletes on the sidelines in real time.
Beathard said he will have the same type of approach this week as the starter as he did as the backup.
The kneeling before the anthem Anderson’s source references is when the Cowboys took a knee while linking arms prior to the anthem against the Arizona Cardinals during Week 3 on Monday Night Football.
After that demonstration, Jones said after the game, I can’t say enough about the understanding and the awareness of our team, and these young men that basically said, ‘you know, that makes sense.’ There’s no need for us to talk about unity and equality and have 60 percent of this country mad at you because you’re not perceived to be honoring the flag. And this was a way to do both.
Another Cowboys source told Anderson Wednesday they were basically tired of the entire ordeal, sounding like they’d prefer no politics in football:
Jones’ comments from Sunday on the national anthem came after Vice President Mike Pence left the Colts’ game against the 49ers on Sunday.
Pence said he left the game because players on the 49ers were kneeling during the national anthem. He fired off a few tweets, and then released a pre-written statement on the situation.
By all accounts, he looks incredible in practice. On a representative number of current NFL teams, he’d have a claim on the title of No. 1 wide receiver.
