Eric Decker’s Wife Says Her Husband Was Tricked Into Titans National Anthem Protest

The President of the United States got up on stage in front of a group of people and a bunch of cameras on Friday night and said anyone who kneels during the national anthem is a “son of a bitch.” As a result, the number of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem tripled on Sunday. However, in an effort to avoid division and controversy, some teams opted not to take the field for the national anthem at all.

One of those teams was the Tennessee Titans. After the game, they issued a statement explaining that the decision to stay in the locker room was not intended to be disrespectful.

“The players jointly decided this was the best course of action,” their statement read. “Our commitment to the military and our community is resolute and the absence of our team for the national anthem shouldn’t be misconstrued as unpatriotic.”

Unfortunately, not everyone’s buying that explanation.

Country singer Jessie Decker, wife of Titans wide receiver Eric Decker, is one of them. She wants her patriotic fans to know her hubby was tricked into protesting the national anthem.

“My husband was not made aware it was time to go out for the game,” Jessie said. “Unfortunately a decision was made for him without him knowing.”

Personally I find it hard to believe that the entire team conspired to trick Eric Decker into skipping the anthem, or that he would not have heard anybody discussing anything. But I will concede that stranger things have happened.

In any case, on Monday morning Jessie Decker later made her feelings about the national anthem known with a lengthy Instagram post, to which Eric replied, “Preach baby.”

Let’s see what twitter had to say…
