An NFL official told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that no fines are being considered for those players who stayed in the locker room during the anthem.
NFL owners were among those across the league who responded this weekend to President Trump’s comments and tweets.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Sunday became the first NFL owner who made a donation to Trump’s campaign to speak out.
I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday, Kraft said. I am proud to be associated with so many players who make such tremendous contributions in positively impacting our communities. Their efforts, both on and off the field, help bring people together and make our community stronger.
Playing in relief of the injured Gus Frerotte, Rosenfels orchestrated a 21-point comeback as Miami defeated Buffalo, 24-23, in Week 13 of the 2005 season. Rosenfels’ main target was wide receiver Chris Chambers, who set a franchise single-game record with 15 catches for 238 yards along with the game-winning touchdown.
Houston held Rosenfels in higher regard than Miami did during the 2006 offseason, signing him away via free agency. The Texans were rewarded by Rosenfels posting a 6-4 starting record and performing well as a backup by-and-large when called upon over the next three seasons.
Those fantasy owners have to be more worried after the Jets held the Dolphins to a 14.3 percent GBR and a 6.5 GBYPA. This gives Miami a 22.2 percent GBR for the season, which is the worst in the NFL. It is highly unlikely the Dolphins will block this poorly for the rest of the season, but these numbers should give Ajayi’s fantasy managers pause to put him in the lineup until the blocking issues are resolved.
