Jermichael Finley may not be a name you hear too often, but he’s making headlines today for speaking out against Marshawn Lynch and Michael Bennett‘s decision to not stand for the National Anthem.

The former NFL star says Lynch and Bennett don’t care about social justice and are using Colin Kaepernick‘s protest tactic as a publicity stunt. Finley claimed, “It’s more of marketing, it’s not really in their heart that they really want to do that. But once again, I think it’s a selfish reason, I really do.” He added that guys like Bennett, Lynch and Kaepernick need to be controversial to stay relevant.

The frustrated former athlete continued to go in on Kaepernick, even suggesting that he cut off his beloved Afro — the same statements that recently got Michael Vick in hot water.  See the video below:

Actually, it sounds like Finley is using them for a publicity stunt to stay relevant. The former Green Bay Packers tight end hasn’t stepped foot on a football field since 2013 and this is just the type of press to get him in the spotlight.

Jermichael, don’t fall the B.S. Well, you already did.
