Mike Evans sat during the national anthem prior to Sunday's Chicago Bears-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game to protest Donald Trump's victory in last week's presidential election.
"I'm not big on politics or anything like that, but I told myself, 'If this happens, America is not right right now,'" Evans said of Trump being elected. "I said this a long time ago -- when he ran, I thought it was a joke. The joke continues."
Evans said his gesture wasn't in line with Colin Kaepernick's protest on the treatment of racial minorities in the United States.
"I know Kaepernick did that," he said. "I'm doing it for a different reason, for how a reality star can be the president. That's not a good look. ... I'm not a political person, but I have common sense and I know something is not right."
