The Denver Broncos didn't necessarily make any decisions together as a team last week, as some players took a knee for the anthem while others stood.

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

They go on to explain that our country is not ideal and that inequalities still exist, "We can all do better", they wrote.

"We had a meeting yesterday after practice and we made a decision to stand as a team", Denver coach Vance Joseph said.

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 group met Wednesday to see if a consensus could be found about what the players wanted to do moving forward.

After President Donald Trump made disparaging comments about National Football League players who were protesting and said owners should fire players who did not stand for the anthem, players protested en masse last week.

"We talked about it as a team just, like how we did before Sunday's game. We are all huge team guys", Von Miller said. "Hopefully we can get back to that this week".

A tweet from the Broncos official account released the below statement from the players on Thursday afternoon.As you might expect, both the decision to stand and the statement above were big topics of conversation during all media availability on the day, so much so that head coach Vance Joseph had to jokingly prod the media to ask football questions.

Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said the decision was made by the team's leaders after they held a vote on the matter.

Joseph added that it is important for all involved to get into the community to "make true change". "We all went with it, so everybody stands".
