J.J. Watt, Baker Mayfield shut down fans who assumed they’re against protesting during national anthem

Given the widespread protests and countless athletes who have been involved across the country in the past few weeks, it is far from certain that players will kneel during the national anthem in protest in the fall.
Houston Texans star J.J. Watt and Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield have ensured that they continue to support these protests on social media on Saturday.
J.J. Watt quickly corrects the fan
Watt hit a fan on Twitter on Saturday afternoon who said in a tweet that has since been deleted that he was "pretty sure you J.J. Watt kneels down" during this season's national anthem.

A) Don't speak for me

B) If you still think it's about disregarding the flag or our military, you obviously haven't been listening

The defensive end did not indicate whether he would take a knee during the anthem, but he clearly supports the protests.
He's not alone in Houston either.
Texas coach Bill O'Brien said on Friday that he will kneel next to his players this fall.
"Yes, I'm going to take a knee - I'm all for it," said O'Brien of the Houston Chronicle. “The players have the right to protest, to be heard and to be who they are. They don't kneel because they are against our flag. They kneel down because they have not been treated equally in this country for over 400 years. "
Mayfield is kneeling this season
Mayfield doesn't just support players kneeling in protest during the national anthem. He also plans to kneel.
Mayfield replied to a fan who made a comment on Saturday afternoon to make sure he wouldn't kneel in protest. His answer was perfect.

While it is not known exactly how many players and coaches will take a knee during the national anthem this season, Watt and Mayfield's comments on Saturday made something crystal clear: kneeling will certainly be much more common this fall than at the beginning Colin Kaepernick started the movement in 2016.
