Rishard Matthews ‘done playing football’ if forced to stand for national anthem

5:20 PM ET

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews appears to be absolute in his decision to stay inside during the national anthem, saying he is willing to give up his profession rather than being forced to change his protest over social issues.

On Thursday afternoon, Matthews was asked by Matt Parker, a local Nashville producer, via Twitter if he would continue to remain in the locker room during the anthem if the NFL created a rule requiring players to stand or face a penalty.

“No, I will be done playing football,” Matthews responded.

Matthews, who hit the field for the Titans’ Thursday afternoon practice, quickly deleted the tweet. He was not available for reporters during locker room availability Thursday.
