McNair came under fire after he said team owners “can’t have the inmates running the prison,” a reference to the mostly Black players who kneel during the national anthem to bring awareness, to police brutality against Black people. The owner’s remark ignited widespread anger and rebellion from his own players.
In defending McNair, Moon also said Colin Kaepernick, the unsigned quarterback who initiated the anthem protest, made his situation worse by filing a lawsuit against the NFL and owners for conspiring to keep him off the field this season. The Texans had considered signing the free agent after their rookie quarterback got injured.
