Kaepernick went unsigned last season as a free agent, but players across the league continued to protest.

Kneeling during the anthem began during the 2016 preseason when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick became the first to do so as a means of protesting racial injustice and police brutality.

The team sent down Ronald Torreyes to make room for Bird.

Was returned from rehab and reinstated from the 10-day disabled list prior to tonight’s game…was placed on the 10-day disabled list on 3/29 (retroactive to 3/26) recovering from right ankle surgery (missed the Yankees’ rst 47 games of the season)…combined with Single-A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to bat.205/.367/.436 (8-for-39) with 9R, 3HR, 8RBI and10BB in 12 rehab games.

Matthews was pitching in the charity softball game, which also included other Packers players, when a batted ball drilled him directly in the face, knocking him down. He got up and ran off the field, covering his face, and was taken to the emergency room.

Once he is, what will he do?

There continues to be no indication that the Giants and Beckham are closing in on a new contract. Beckham reportedly wants more than $20 million per year. The Giants apparently want to wait before making a commitment, primarily for reasons unrelated to Beckham’s skills and abilities. Beckham arguably should refuse to put himself at any degree of physical risk until he gets what he wants.

And if the Giants are willing to give Beckham what he wants, the Giants possibly should trade him to a team that will.

The good news for Owens is that he won’t have to worry about the Madden curse. Unless he does indeed get another shot to play in the NFL.

Given the current overall quality of the Cowboys’ receiving corps, maybe they could use him.

One former ambassador said then-head of business operations for the Redskins, Dennis Greene, would examine the women before games and choose two to accompany him while he visited suite-holders.

He would look each of us up and down and say, I want that one and that one, and everyone hated when you got selected for that, the former ambassador told the Times. It was humiliating, like we were cattle.

Mayfield starred at Oklahoma, but will his antics and size get overblown?

Still, the Titans possess some elements that could make this a game. Derrick Morgan, Brian Orakpo, Jurrell Casey and Erik Walden are largely unheralded, yet form a quartet of pass rushers that could generate the type of pocket pressure that’s key to beating Brady. RB Derrick Henry and a mauling offensive line could crack a Patriots defense that allowed more yards than all but three teams in 2017. And mobile quarterbacks like Alex Smith and Cam Newton were hugely responsible for two of New England’s three losses this season. Marcus Mariota fits that mold, too, but he and the Titans can’t afford to fall into a deficit that forces them to stray from a balanced approach.

While Hundley struggled, the Packers had only 19 called run plays in what was just a two-score game through three quarters. McCarthy has been spoiled with Rodgers, who has covered up many of McCarthy’s deficiencies as a play caller. Without Rodgers to create plays out of nothing, those shortcomings are painfully obvious as the Packers were shut out for the second time in a season for the first time since 2006 — McCarthy’s first season as the team’s head coach.

It’s simple to see that in terms of winning basketball games, the Thunder are far and away the better choice for Paul. He has guaranteed future there with Westbrook and a solid organization to call home. But he just can’t hide the glimmer in his eye when asked about the Lakers.

We’re not used to a player being this brutally open and honest and his free agency desires. Most players try to hide their feelings a bit more, but George has made it clear he’s weighing every single option and he cannot stop thinking about Los Angeles.

My advice to Thunder and Lakers fans is to buckle up. You’re in for a long six months.

Thomas showed he could make plays with or without James and Kevin Love on the court. That’s something the Cavaliers couldn’t really afford to do last season with Irving, as great as he was for them.

Ever since making the NFC championship in 2015, the (BLANK) have sleepwalked through two mediocre seasons, and it’s clear their starting quarterback’s time is almost up. With all that uncertainty, now is the right time to bring in a quarterback who produced almost 13,000 yards of total offense with 116 total TDs. Jackson can do that.

The Cardinals need to draft the Cardinals’ star quarterback. There is uncertainty around Bruce Arians future, but Palmer turns 38 next week. Even if the QB stays one more year, that would allow Jackson to develop as the quarterback of the future. He’s a playmaker in the mold of Michael Vick, and ignoring all that production would be foolish. It’s hard to pin a perfect landing spot for Jackson, but Arizona looks like the best fit for now.

David Price, Red Sox to huddle after latest up-and-down rehab start

Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has been suspended two games by the club for directing a homophobic slur toward Braves pitcher Jason Motte.

Toronto general manager Ross Atkins told reporters Thursday that Pillar’s pay for those two games will be donated to a charity.

He’ll sit out Thursday’s game against the Braves and Friday’s opener with the Orioles.

The Blue Jays and Braves got into a benches-clearing scuffle during’s Wednesday’s 8-4 Atlanta win after Pillar took exception to a pitch from Motte. Pillar used a homophobic slur toward Motte to express his frustration.

We have to sit with him and talk about what’s best for him, what’s best for us, going forward, Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters (via ESPN.com) after Boston’s win over the Rangers, adding, The linescore isn’t what we’re going to see going forward. But from just answering the physical side of it, I think he’s answered that. We’ll check him in the morning and make sure there’s no physical ailments, which we don’t expect any and we’ll sit with him and map out the next step.

Price left the ballpark in Pawtucket without speaking to the media.

The nagging takeaway from Wednesday’s start: Price’s inability to put away hitters and his struggles with command. Both, according to the Globe, suggest that ’ while he is getting closer for major league competition ’ he’s still in a building phase. ’ It would come as little surprise if Price requires at least one more rehab start before returning to the big leagues.
