According to a new report from the Houston Chronicle claims that NFL agents said the Houston Texans owner does not want to look at free agents that kneeled.
I spoke with two NFL agents this week who said word is the Texans aren’t interested in any players who participated in pregame kneel-downs in protest of police brutality.
There is no directive within the organization, but it is considered to be understood that as desperate as the Texans are to bring in talent, the pool of potential signees and draftees will not include anyone who has participated in protests or are likely to.
If this story is true I hope other owners follow suit. The kneelers have ruined the NFL game for many and their ratings are showing it.
The owner of The Houston Texans Bob McNair came under fire earlier this year for his ‘inmates running the asylum’ comments.
