CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has changed his mind and will stand for the national anthem. Mayfield had said during the offseason he intended to kneel in protest of racial injustice, but announced on Twitter that he intends to stand for both the “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which will be played before every NFL game this season. The Browns open the season Sunday in Baltimore. Mayfield said he’ll respect whatever decisions his teammates make as far as protesting during the anthems.
