Seahawks DE Michael Bennett knelt during the national anthem for the second time this preseason Friday night in Seattle. This time Bennett had some support. Seahawks C Justin Britt stood during the anthem, but put his hand on Bennett’s shoulder.

The scene was similar to what we saw in Philadelphia on Thursday night with the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long. Jenkins stood with his fist held high, and Long put a hand on his back as a show of support.
