The Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins have rejected reports they would avoid signing players who kneeled during the American national anthem.

There is no official directive in the organization, but it is understood that the team isn't going to pursue anyone who participated in the protests, the paper reported.

"A recent report that suggests the Houston Texans would not sign a player who has protested in support of social justice issues is categorically false and without merit", the team said.

NFL teams all have very specific criteria when it comes to signing and drafting players, but the Houston Texans may be crossing players off their list for a reason that will not sit well with many across the league.
