NFL commissioner Roger Goodell previously announced that league owners will meet next week to address player protests, which is something President Donald Trump has implored the league to do for over a month.

It was framed with Matthews' recent anthem protests in mind.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews will not stay in the locker room or pay a fine if the NFL makes a new rule requiring players to stand for the national anthem at games. The past two weeks, Matthews has stayed in there during the anthem and joined his team afterwards.

Matthews announced September 28 he was donating $75,000 to a group of "organizations working in oppressed communities". The protests started after former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling to protest police mistreatment of African Americans.
