Broncos Talib says he'll continue to stand for National Anthem

ENGLEWOOD -

The national anthem controversy is not going away with the NFL anytime soon. 

After meeting two weeks ago, the Broncos players agreed to stand for the anthem. 

But a mandate may be looming for the players in the league. 

"I stand anyway. It won’t affect anything I do," said Talib. "Like I said, I don’t feel like taking a knee and all that. That’s not really solving the problem in my eyes. There definitely is a problem out there but taking a knee and all that - I stand for the people that go to war for us. Trump may make us go to war again and then those guys are going to go to war for us again. That’s why I’m standing. I appreciate everything those guys do." 

Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to NFL owners this week hoping to resolve it.

The owners will meet next week to decide on a mandate to the National Anthem in the NFL Rule Book. 

A decision from the league owners could come following those meetings.
