In his statement, Marshall said: For the first half of the season, Ive been taking a knee for the National Anthem to raise awareness for social injustice and to start conversation about what all of us can do to make a positive change.Im encouraged with the many productive discussions and progress that has taken place as the Denver Police department has decided to review its use of force policy. Im proud to have joined so many of my peers throughout sports whove also made their own statements.Going forward, I will be standing for the National Anthem - not because everything is perfect, or because Im changing my stance on things.

The Crimson Tide coach was asked Wednesday about an Associated Press report regarding his agents conversation in January about possibly replacing Mack Brown at Texas. Sabans agent, Jimmy Sexton, indicated that the coach would consider leaving Tuscaloosa for the Texas job during a January phone call, according to an email sent by former Texas Regent Tom Hicks. "Sexton confirmed that UT is the only job Nick would possibly consider leaving Alabama for, and that his success there created special pressure for him," Hicks wrote of a call involving Sexton, himself and current Regent Wallace Hall. Asked about the account, Saban said: "No ones said anything like that." "First of all, I dont know where yall get these reports and I dont know where yall get the information," said Saban, who smiled when a reporter asked about the AP report. "But Ive already commented on all this stuff. Theres nothing nnew or different thats ever happened. Reds Jerseys China. . Im very committed to the University of Alabama, love being here. Weve talked about it before. Dont need to talk about it again. "Weve got a big game with LSU this week. Thats where our focus is and thats what were focusing on. Theres really nothing new to comment about." Hicks detailed the call in a Sept. 24 email that was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through an open-records request. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has at least twice said since the initial report of the Texas conversation that he was too old to take over another program. "Im too damn old to go someplace else and start over, I can tell you that," he said after the Tennessee game. Sexton has declined to comment. It isnt clear who initiated the contact between the agent and Texas. Two days after the call, Hicks approached Brown about the possibility of the Texas coach retiring. Brown, who is under contract until 2020, said he wanted to stay. He has led the Longhorns to five straight wins and the Big 12 Conference lead after an 0-2 start. ' ' '
