Denver Broncos will stand in unity at Sunday's game

Denver Broncos:

Broncos players released a statement Thursday that they will stand for the national anthem this Sunday before their game against the Raiders.

"Make no mistake - our actions were in no way a protest of the military, the flag, or those who keep us safe", the statement adds.

Players from many teams, including the Broncos, have said that their protests this past weekend were not about the American flag or the military or the national anthem, but a show of disapproval of Trump's comments and inequalities in the United States.

The Broncos were one of many NFL teams to take a knee during the national anthem in Week 3 as a response to President Donald Trump's remarks at a rally on September 22.

Joseph said the team has not required players to stand for the anthem, while he and president of football operations/general manager John Elway had said they believed players should stand. Elway has publicly expressed his support for the president on many issues and has been a prominent figure at some local GOP fund-raising events.

Denver Broncos:

According to Broncos insider Troy Renck, who confirmed the meeting, that's where the team determined they would stand together moving forward. "We are all huge team guys", Von Miller said. "We just talked about it".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now".

The end of the statement here reads, "Starting Sunday, we'll be standing together". "We felt like that was the best direction to go". So the Broncos turned to a good ol' vote to make their decision, the goal being to come up with a final decision for everyone.

"It was an open-forum conversation", Joseph said. "With the environment that we're in right now, no one's going to make any change".
