Chiefs’ Marcus Peters Rides Stationary Bike While Everyone Stands For Anthem
Just before their preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, Marcus Peters seemingly protested the National Anthem in a way not seen before.
The Kansas City Chiefs cornerback was seen riding a stationary bike during the Anthem, while many others around him were standing with their hands over their hearts.

It wasn’t clear if this was an actual protest, but it should be noted that the pro-bowler did in fact raise his fist in protest during the National Anthem last year before a regular season game.
