The Denver Broncos have released the following statement about this past week's games where players across the NFL kneeled in protest of President Trump's comments concerning others who have done so in protest.


A Message From Our Players

Last week, members of our team joined their brothers around the NFL in a powerful display of unity. It was an emotional time for everyone, including fans who support us each and every week. As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve.

Our voices needed to be heard loud and clear.

Make no mistake - our actions were in no way a protest of the military, the flag or those who keep us safe. We have nothing but the deepest love and respect for those who protect our way of life and the the freedoms we enjoys Americans.

While there's no greater country, it's not perfect. Inequalities still exist, and we have to work to do in ALL forms of social justice.

We can all do better.

It starts with us. We need to do our part and use our platform as NFL players continue driving that positive change.

Our locker room is one diverse place, and that's what makes it so special. It's where thoughful, intelligent leaders from all different races, religions and backgrounds come together.

We may have different values and beliefs, but there's one thing we all agree on:
We're a team and we stand together - no matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should ever get in the way of that.

Starting Sunday, we'll be standing together.
