Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield announced earlier this off-season that he was going to kneel for the National Anthem this season.  On Saturday he took to social media to let everyone know that he's had a change of heart.

Mayfield pointed to Thursday night's game as well as a video released by Miami Dolphins players as reasons why he's decided to stand.  He added that he will respect whatever decision his teammates make.

Nobody was prouder of his decision to stand than his wife Emily, who expressed how proud she was in her Instagram story.

It's incredible that there's still so much conversation about kneeling during the National Anthem.  The people who wanted to make the protests about disrespecting the flag were successful.
