  • The NFL’s non-compromise compromise regarding the national anthem consisted of the owners deciding to tell any player who would be inclined to protest during the anthem to take it to the locker room. Steelers cornerback Artie Burns thinks that this approach unfairly stigmatizes the players who would like to peacefully and silently protest.

    “It makes you look bad <a title="Mark Herzlich Jersey" href="">Mark Herzlich Jersey</a> ,” Burns said Thursday, via Lauren Kerschman of “You got your whole team out there. You come jogging out and it’s, ‘Oh, he’s the guy who left the field.’ Who wants to go through that, man? That’s humiliating us as a person.

    “We’re trying to stand for something and you’re going to single us out in front of everybody. You talk about bullying, man. That’s bullying. That’s my opinion.”

    Burns sees the entire issue as many do — an effort to further divide a country that’s already so divided that it’s essentially two distinct countries whose residents are intermingled.

    “I feel that’s just a topic to get everybody against each other <a title="Robert Griffin III Jersey" href="">Robert Griffin III Jersey</a> ,” Burns said. “I hate that we have to go down this route but it is what it is.”

    Burns eventually cut off the topic, explaining that it was making him too angry. As players have a chance over the coming three-day weekend to further process what the owners have done, maybe even more of them will be angry come Tuesday, when they return to “voluntary” offseason work.


    OPEN CAMP: July 25, Nashville, Tennessee

    LAST YEAR: Titans swept Jacksonville but missed AFC South title after losing three straight in December. Winning first postseason game in 14 years with amazing comeback in Kansas City didn't save coach Mike Mularkey <a title="Marquel Lee Jersey" href="">Marquel Lee Jersey</a> , not when he stuck with OC Terry Robiskie following ugly rout in New England.

    IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: First-time head coach Mike Vrabel, defensive coordinator Dean Pees, offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, CB Malcolm Butler, RB Dion Lewis, QB Blaine Gabbert <a title="Malcolm Mitchell Jersey" href="">Malcolm Mitchell Jersey</a> , LB Rashaan Evans, LB Harold Landry.

    IMPORTANT LOSSES: DC Dick LeBeau, RB DeMarco Murray, WR Eric Decker, LB Erik Walden, S Da'Norris Searcy <a title="Max Unger Jersey" href="">Max Unger Jersey</a> , QB Matt Cassel.

    CAMP NEEDS: Sign Pro Bowl LT Taylor Lewan to contract extension. Lewan stayed away from mandatory minicamp to make clear he wants new deal instead of fifth-year option at $9.3 million. QB Marcus Mariota mastering another offense with third head coach. Develop WR Corey Davis and rest of young receiving corps.

    EXPECTATIONS: For so long, Vrabel was seen as future coaching star, and former Patriots linebacker gets no honeymoon period with franchise coming off consecutive 9-7 seasons. Mariota is going into fourth season and GM Jon Robinson has assembled this franchise's most talented roster in decade, leaving division title and long playoff run as Titans' next step.
