( CNN) Rather than taking a knee, most NFL players opted for a show of unity Sunday, locking limbs ahead of their games amid criticism from President Trump who slammed players opting to protest during the national anthem.

Kaepernick, who has sit and knelt during the anthem, has said he rejects to honor a sung or “show pride in a flag for a country that subjugates black people and people of color.” He also referenced the shootings of black men by police as one of reasons for his stance. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way, ” he told NFL Media. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”DTAG 3 TTDTAG 4 TTDTAG 5 TTDTAG 6 TTDTAG 7 TTDTAG 8 TTDTAG 9 TT
