As Twitter users continue to tweet their distaste for Kaepernick and the athletes that are rallying behind him, a logical question to ask is who will be next to join the athletes in their protest?
Linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has played with Lane in Seattle since 2012, hinted that the Seahawks may be the next athletes to join the protest. Wagner told the media that “anything we want to do, it’s not going to be individual. It’s going to be a team thing. That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”
