Cleveland Browns players stand arm-to-arm during national anthem before Tampa Bay Buccaneers game

TAMPA, Fla. — About 30 Cleveland Browns players stood linking arms in a line during the national anthem before Saturday’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The long line of players stood together just in front of the Browns’ bench, behind the rest of the players and coaches standing closer to the field.

All players on both teams were standing during the anthem Saturday night.

This came five days after a home preseason game against the New York Giants when more than a dozen Browns players formed a circle on the team’s sideline and prayed in silent protest during the national anthem.

This is the latest in a social-consciousness movement started last season by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who became a polarizing figure for kneeling during the anthem and is currently out of the NFL.
