The NFL is considering allowing teams to make their own decision whether to require players to stand for the national anthem, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
Owners are expected to vote on a potential change at this month's upcoming meeting, including a possible league-wide policy that would require all players to stand. Other options include allowing players to remain in the locker room or keeping all players in the locker room until after the national anthem.
Leaving the current policy, which features zero restrictions on player action, is also an option.
"My guess is they will leave it up to the teams," a high-ranking official said of the expected changes.
