Falcons coach Dan Quinn was asked to address Marshawn Lynch’s decision to sit during the National Anthem in his first game with the Raiders on Saturday.
“Everything with us we will try to discuss as a team,” Quinn said. “I’m sure that was the case with Marshawn Lynch, he’s a fantastic teammate. I’m sure that was one that he discussed with their guys too, knowing the type of competitor he is and teammate he is. That’ll be something we do for sure.”
The Falcons and Saints formed a “unity circle” before the game in New Orleans to protest social injustices together as teams.
