Changes Stance on Kneeling
‘It’s Fine With Me’

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.
