Draft Scout *Akeem Spence News
09/28/17 - DT Akeem Spence, one of eight Lions who took a knee for the national anthem last week, said he expects the team to continue its protests during the anthem in some way, shape or form.
"Us guys, we'll talk about it here in the locker room and if we feel strongly enough about it, but it'll probably be something that continues just because of what's going on in our country, the injustice and everything like that," Spence said. "And like we always say, it's no disrespect to the American flag. Guys just trying to bring it about. It's about right and wrong, like I always say, and what's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. It's no offense to nobody, no disrespect, just like I always tell people, love one another and we'll be alright."
