Lynch sits during national anthem vs. Cardinals
USA Today Sports / USA TODAY Sports

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest athlete to not stand during the national anthem ahead of Saturday's preseason game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

It was unclear if the Raiders star, who sat out the 2016 season and came out of retirement this spring, was sitting as a protest, joining Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins - who will continue to do so this year - and free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, among others.

No other players joined Lynch during the anthem on Saturday.

After the game head coach Jack Del Rio told reporters that he spoke to Lynch, who said he hadn't stood for the national anthem in 11 years. Del Rio called it a "non-issue" in his opinion.
