After Receiving Death Threats, Colts TE Dwayne Allen Explained He Was Praying During Anthem (Video)


While San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is used to the slander he receives during games and online because of his kneeling during the National Anthem, Colts tight end Dwayne Allen is not.  And, quite frankly, he doesn’t need or want any backlash.

For 4 years, Dwayne Allen has always kneeled during the playing of the National Anthem and it has nothing to do with police brutality or the treatment of African Americans. He is simply praying for everybody on the field as well as himself and his family.  But during a Sunday Night Football game against the Houston Texans, NBC mistakenly said he was kneeling in protest.

He was bashed immediately online and had to put out a video to explain why he was kneeling because the slander was getting really bad.



Amazing how those real feelings come out when some get angered.  And now those same people will go back to cheering for him like nothing was ever said.
