Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will kneel during the national anthem this upcoming season.

According to Kent Somers, Murray spoke with the media Wednesday as debates about the anthem rage throughout sports, and he said that he’d take a knee during the song. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Remember when I said as soon as this anthem stuff popped off with Drew Brees that we were going to be in for a season of chaos?

Well, I was 100% correct, and there’s no doubt about it any more at this point. It’s going to be all over the place this season.

Remember, we already have Baker Mayfield on record that he’s going to kneel. Now, Kyler Murray, who is one of the best young players in the NFL, is going to join him.

When you have guys with that kind of name recognition kneeling, then it’s going to grip headlines all season long.

Unfortunately, I really don’t think this trend is going away anytime soon. We’re months away from the season even starting and it’s all over the place.

Welcome to football in 2020! It’s not a political issue instead of a sport focused on winning. This is honestly the worst.
