Cowboys QB Dak Prescott 'not at all' tempted to protest national anthem: Can't take freedom for granted
While protests of the national anthem continue to pick up steam, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says he will not be joining the ranks of those kneeling.
In an interview with Yahoo Sports posted Sunday, Prescott said he is "not at all" tempted to protest the anthem.
"I mean, it's bigger than I think some of us think," he said. "It's just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I've been given and my freedom for granted."
"I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. "I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it."
