Former NFL Linebacker Dhani Jones: Protests Won't Be Resolved Soon

October 17, 2017

NFL owners and players met Tuesday in an attempt to resolve the controversy around national anthem protests. We talk to former NFL linebacker and TV personality Dhani Jones about his take on the divisive issue.

Jones played professionally for 11 years, and while he thinks the talks are a good sign, he doesn't think anything will be resolved this year. As for whether he'd kneel if he were still playing, Jones says he'd have to think about it.

The NFL talks come on the same day the NBA season is set to tip off. Jones thinks we'll "definitely" see more protests from basketball players as the season gets underway.

Jones is keeping busy. He's teamed up with Bank of America to celebrate "Pay Back a Friend Day," advocating that friends settle tabs with one another before it's too late. He's also hosting season two of "Adventure Capitalism" on CNBC and tells us what he looks for as an investor.
