Jim Brown is softening his opinion on Colin Kaepernick‘s kneeling demonstration — telling TMZ Sports he’s decided he’s “fine” with NFL players protesting during the national anthem. 

The NFL legend had previously lashed out against the protesters back in August  — saying, “I’m an American. I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem.”

But that was months ago … and when the Cleveland Browns icon was leaving Mastro’s Steakhouse in Bev Hills on Sunday, he wanted to make it clear he’s changed his tune. 

“I think if [NFL players] wanted to kneel and it was within the rules of the game, it’s fine with me,” Brown said.

He added, “I really don’t want to speak for anyone else, and I don’t want to be negative about too many things.” 

Brown’s comments came just a few hours before Colin Kaepernick was named GQ’s Citizen of the Year.
