The memo was not announcing a policy change, it was simply Goodell's stance on the controversy: "As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week".

According to ESPN, Matthews responded to fan's question on Twitter by stating that he would "be done playing football" if the NFL were to put in place a rule that would require all players to stand.

Matthews recently posted a picture of himself saluting on Instagram with a picture of his deceased brother superimposed over his likeness.

In the Titans' three games since Donald Trump attacked NFL players who are protesting racial inequality and police mistreatment of minorities by not standing for the national anthem, Matthews has stayed in the locker room each time.

However, Matthews' father reportedly served in the Marines for 23 years, and his brother was actually killed in Afghanistan while working as a private defense contractor in 2015 after previously serving in Iraq.

The Titans receiver has spoken out about how the National Football League protests have been hijacked by people focusing on the disrespecting the flag narrative.

"Having a brother (lose his life overseas) and growing up military, at first I looked at it as a disrespect thing to the military", Matthews told the Tennessean. "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong".

"Sometimes people, as you all know, tweet some ignorant things out at some moments and that was an ignorant thing I tweeted out at that given moment", Matthews said. "I take full responsibility, and that's why it went down right after, but somebody caught me with a screenshot".
