Packers' Jordy Nelson adopts baby before Cowboys game

Packers' Jordy Nelson adopts baby before Cowboys game

The adoption was made official two days before the Packers won a game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday.

"The policy and my actions are going to be if you don't honor and stand for the flag in a way that a lot of our fans feel that you should, if that's not the case, then you won't play", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, doubling down on his comments following his conversation with President Trump. "It's all up to each individual".

Dallas players have stood on the sideline, many with hands over their hearts, during the anthem ever since former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling last season in protest of what he believed were instances of racial injustice in the U.S. 'But if there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play. OK? "Any player who disrespects the flag or does not stand for the anthem will not play in the game", Mortensen said.

"I look forward to the day when everyone in management can unite and truly embrace and articulate what the flag stands for, liberty and justice for all, instead of some of them just talking about standing", Smith said, per the Associated Press' Schuyler Dixon (via the Washington Post). Jones left the door open for his players to protest before or after the anthem, but made it clear that during the song, no dissonance would be accepted. "We will not disrespect the flag". And so I'm not going to have a situation with the flag where there is a debate about whether we're respecting that or not.

The NFL has said that the game operations passage is policy and not a rule and that it doesn't plan to punish players over anthem protests. In a statement, Pence said he will not dignify an event that disrespects the military and the US.
