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".

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

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.
