Former Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown, who Houston traded to the Seattle Seahawks in the middle of the 2017 season, told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio he felt abandoned by the team after he knelt during the anthem.

Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle revealed that he has spoken to two NFL agents who claim that the Texans aren't interested in signing players who have knelt during the playing of the national anthem.

Ross told the Daily News he was for kneeling before he was against it, and that he flopped after tweets past year by President Donald Trump convinced people the protests were attacks on the US flag and military rather than statements against police brutality. While there is not believed to be a directive in place preventing personnel people from meeting with and signing players who have protested, Texans owner Bob McNair reportedly made it known that he would prefer to avoid free agents and draft prospects who have participated in demonstrations or are likely to.

The Texans vehemently denied the report in a statement released on Monday night.

The quiet internal decision that comes via the word of two National Football League agents comes in the backdrop of Texans owner Bob McNair's provocative comment past year that he didn't want "inmates running the prison".

While money will always speak louder than anything else, it's hard to see why any free agent would willingly sign for a team that has an owner who once likened his players to criminals.
