The Arizona Cardinals take on the Oakland Raiders Saturday night at University of Phoenix Stadium.

During an interview on Conan previous year, Lynch discussed former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaeperneck taking a knee during the anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke with Lynch after the game and was not aware that he planned to sit. Lynch is on a two-year, $9 million contract with the Oakland Raiders.

It's possible that Lynch has skipped the anthem in some settings, but Del Rio's statement made it sound like Lynch has consistently sat out the anthem throughout his career. "I said, 'So you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I'm gonna respect you as a man".

Sanchez is still in a contract stand-off with the Gunners amid reports he could be sold this summer, with PSG and Manchester City linked.


Lynch hasn't spoken with media in Napa during training camp yet, and given that he hasn't stood for the anthem in over a decade it's unlikely he will do so for this matter. Raiders linebackers Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith joined in early a year ago, by standing through the anthem with a raised fist before a game at Tennessee.

Lynch rarely talks to the media but has voiced his support for quarterback Colin Kaepernick's 2016 season-long decision to kneel during the anthem to draw attention to what he saw as incidents of police brutality against people of color.

Lynch did not clarify why he generally sits during the national anthem, as he told Del Rio. He did not speak with the press.
