Legendary football player Herschel Walker wants the NFL to ban kneeling during the national anthem.

“I do. I think it means making a league wide rule. If you want to protest, protest off the job,” Walker told TMZ when asked if the NFL should create a rule banning kneeling during the national anthem.

WATCH:

The NFL had more than a hundred players kneel during the national anthem last weekend, and it’ll certainly carry over into the games on Sunday.

Walker being so open about wanting the league to institute a policy banning kneeling during the anthem is just further proof of the division within the league. It’s unlikely the national anthem protests get figured out anytime soon, but expect more and more former players to project their opinions.
