Devout Christian, Tim Tebow, who is taking part in an instructional league for the New York Mets, fielded a question on San Francisco 49ers benched quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusal to stand during the playing of the national anthem.

Surprisingly Tebow appears to support Kaepernick’s and other NFL players’ “right to protest,” while questioning the way it is being carried out.


“I think there’s a lot of people who have thoughts out there,’’ Tebow said to USA Today Sports’ Bob Nightengale, “and for now, I’m just going to keep mine to myself about it. I mean, I think that when people have belief in something, or conviction about something, trying to stand for that, is a good thing. h/t foxnews


“And then it’s all about trying to stand for it the right way.’’

No word on what Tebow thinks of Kaepernick cop hating socks.
