NFL could reportedly let each team decide if they will allow anthem protests

NFL owners are considering a compromise solution to the sport’s national anthem policy that would make it a team-by-team decision whether to require players to stand for the anthem prior to games, according to several people familiar with the league’s inner workings.

While some owners would like to require all players to stand for the anthem, others remain opposed to such a mandate and there appears to be insufficient support to make that a league-wide policy, according to those with knowledge of the owners’ thinking. Making it a team-by-team decision would allow some owners to impose a requirement that players stand for the anthem while most others would be likely to continue to allow players to make their own choices, those people said.

Corbett, the 33rd-overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft , played tackle exclusively during his career at Nevada, where he started 48 games. He was the successor to a current Browns lineman, guard Joel Bitonio , who also played tackle for the Wolfpack before moving inside as a professional.

Cleveland is pretty well off on the interior (having signed center J.C. Tretter and guard Kevin Zeitler last offseason), making Corbett’s likelihood of moving to guard or center less likely, especially with the aforementioned void at left tackle. It’s not a guarantee, though.

I see him as a good football player, very multi-faceted. He can do a lot of things , Browns VP of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith said, per the team’s official site. There is no doubt that he could probably play center for you. I think one of the best things that you want to do is add good football players to your team. It’s a great problem to have, a guy that can play a bunch of different positions.tigers_004-115x115
