One of the hottest topics of discussion this past season in the National Football League was the protesting of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and thanks to Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, that topic will be discussed even further as the regular season draws closer.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the national anthem before Saturday night's preseason game between the Raiders and Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.

It is not known yet whether or not this was a move motivated by some sort of activism or if it is in support of Kaepernick.

AP photographers snapped Lynch taking a seat on a cooler on the sidelines as the anthem played.

The England worldwide has revealed his desire to move back north, hinting at a move to Manchester United or Manchester City . And Lampard has expressed his surprise at seeing Chelsea such an important player to a rival.

The 31-year-old Lynch came out of retirement when he was acquired by the Raiders in April after spending five seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

"I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I'm going to respect you as a man".

Sankey, a second-round draft pick by Tennessee in 2014, joined Minnesota's practice squad late last season.

UPDATE (1:24 a.m.): Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio spoke to the media after the game and said he was unaware Lynch would sit for the national anthem.
