Stills has routinely knelt for the anthem during his time with the team.

Many NFL teams played their first preseason games on Thursday after a highly controversial offseason focused on the league's response to players who protest during the national anthem.

Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills and newly acquired receiver Albert Wilson knelt during the anthem, while defensive end Robert Quinn raised his fist, Pro Football Talk reported.

Across the NFL, players followed former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem last season in protest of social injustice and racial inequality.

The Philadelphia Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins and De'Vante Bausby showed resistance to the ban before their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers by raising fists during the anthem, while their teammate Chris Long placed his hand on Jenkins' shoulder, according to Philadelphia-based sports reporter Les Bowen.

Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett, a frequent protestor previous year when he played for the Seattle Seahawks, walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played.

Trump in June uninvited the Eagles from visiting the White House in honor of their Super Bowl win months earlier.

According to the new policy, players who do not participate in the anthem are allowed to remain in the locker room during the anthem.

During the NFL Network's television coverage of the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants game, 10 Giants were seen kneeling in unison in an end zone before the National Anthem was played.

The new policy was met with a lot of disdain from the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), who stated that they were not consulted prior to the NFL's decision being publicized.
