Jessie James Decker, country singer and wife of Tennessee Titans wide receiver Eric Decker, also slammed the protests and claims her husband did not want to partake in them on Sunday.
In a statement, the team announced they would remain inside the locker room for the "Star-Spangled Banner" before their game against the Seattle Seahawks. According to Decker, her husband wasn't aware of the decision beforehand. In responding to an Instagram comment, she wrote, "If he had known he would have been out there hand over heart. Unfortunately, he wasn’t made aware it was time to head to the field as they always do every game."
