Brandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall, linebacker with the Denver Broncos, posted the letter Friday on Instagram. 

The Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall announces that he has ended his national anthem protest. He cites positive change toward ending police violence.

As Kaepernick’s powerful message continues to expand its reach, athletes unite in solidarity to take a stand. These are the athletes who have united against social injustice and police brutality in America.

Kaepernick is not the first athlete to sit out the National Anthem or speak out on racial injustice, but his protest stands out because of his prominence and his willingness to take a risk.
