Carroll supports DE Bennett's message

(TSX / STATS) -- RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett elected to sit for the national anthem for Sunday's preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Bennett picked up the cause initially championed by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a season ago of using the gesture to protest racial inequality and social injustice in America. Bennett strongly said he's not anti-military or anti-America - his father served in the military - but that he felt it was necessary to continue to shine a light on issues in the country.

"I love hot dogs like any other American," Bennett said. "I love football like any other American. But I don't love segregation, I don't love riots, I don't love oppression. I don't love gender slander. I just want to see people have the equality that they deserve and I want to be able to use this platform to continuously push the message and keep finding out how unselfish we can be in society, how we can continuously love one another and understand that people are different.
