You can count Baker Mayfield as the next NFL star who will kneel this season.
As the topic of kneeling during the playing of the national anthem has become a topic in the aftermath of Drew Brees' controversial comments, the Cleveland Browns quarterback has made his stance rather clear on the issue.
During a reply to a user commenting on his Instagram page, the 25-year-old Browns star declared he will in fact kneel this season.

Mayfield is one of the first star quarterbacks to declare that he will kneel during the national anthem before games this season. Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien also recently stated that he will kneel alongside his players.
