NFL Player’s Wife Exposes How Her Husband Was ‘Tricked’ Into Sitting Out The National Anthem

Jesse James Decker posted last week about how much she loves this country and loves singing the national anthem. That is one of the reasons people were surprised when her husband, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Eric Decker sat out the national anthem. According to Jesse, her husband was tricked.

“Sadly he wasn’t made aware that a decision had been made for him until he came out and it was over. If he had known, he would have been out there hand over heart. Unfortunately he wasn’t made aware it was time to head out to the field as they always do every game,” she wrote on instagram. Eric Decker responded to this comment by writing “Preach baby.”

However, this contradicts the a post written by the Tennessee Titans which claimed that the team all decided they would sit out the national anthem.

“As a team, we wanted to be unified in our actions today. The players jointly decided this was the best course of action. Our commitment to the military and our community is resolute and the absence of our team for the national anthem shouldn’t be misconstructed as unpatriotic,” they wrote.

Who do you believe? Here is a quote from a post written by Jesse James Decker earlier in the week. “One of my favorite things to do is sing the national anthem. I think about my dad, my uncles, my cousins, both grandfathers who fought in the Vietnam war. I think about how my grandfather paw paw Tim would ask me to sing this song for him every time I saw him and how he would make me turn the other way to sing it so he could just weep and cry as hard as he wanted because it meant so much to him.” Check out the full post below.

One of my favorite things to do is sing the national anthem. I think about my dad, my uncles, my cousins, both grandfathers who fought in the Vietnam war. I think about how my grandfather paw paw Tim would ask me to sing this song for him every time I saw him and how he would make me turn the other way to sing it so he could just weep and cry as hard as he wanted because it meant so much to him. I think about all of our troops I got to visit with and spend time with in the Middle East when I went over seas to sing for them. I think about all of the men crying because they missed their wives so much, or the man telling me he hadn’t seen his baby girl yet since she was born. When I sing this song I think about them. This song is about them. It’s not about me. That’s what I think about every time I sing it. I love our country so much. And we should all love and respect each other because this is the greatest country in the world. I see the love. I see the unity in all walks of life on a daily basis and It makes me so proud to be an American….. so In the words of Forrest Gump. That’s all I have to say about that.
