According to a new report from the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans are not interested in pursuing or signing any free agents or drafting any players who participated in pre-game kneeling protests during the national anthem.

It's quite another for free agents to be interested in the Texans, given the perception that McNair has animosity toward players who have taken a stand. "The Texans ownership, coaching, personnel and executive staff sign and hire employees based on talent, character and fit within our organization", the statement read.
McNair insisted he wasn't referring to the players with his comments.
