Beast Mode, Marshawn Lynch, sat on the bench for the national anthem at the Oakland Raider's pre-season opener on Saturday. This comes after quarterback Colin Kaepernick was blackballed from the NFL for kneeling during the anthem as a protest to racial injustice in America.

Lynch voluntarily retired from the NFL in 2015 and sat out last season before joining his home team, the Oakland Raiders.
