Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills vacationed this offseason in Africa Authentic Claude Giroux Jersey , led several teammates on a training trip to Nebraska and returned to find the NFL's national anthem debate again at peak volume.

"We've got to clean up how things are looking," Stills said following the Dolphins' first training camp practice Thursday.

The sixth-year pro is part of the debate because he kneeled during the anthem the past two seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protest.

Stills would prefer the league had no anthem policy so players could do as they wished, and said he'll wait until a policy is set to decide what he'll do during the anthem this season.

"At some point before the season starts, the league and the players association are going to come to an agreement," he said. "And at that point I'll have a better idea what I'll be doing."

Last week the league and union issued a joint statement saying the two sides are still working on a resolution. Their statement came hours after The Associated Press reported Dolphins players who protest on the field during the anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued last week.

The Dolphins subsequently issued a statement saying all options regarding the team's policy remain open.

On Thursday, coach Adam Gase said he doubted a Miami player would be suspended for protesting during the anthem.

"I mean, if anybody knew actual rules in the NFL, good luck suspending somebody," Gase said. "It takes about 5,000 things before anybody can get suspended by a club."

Gase said he doesn't see anthem issue as potentially divisive for his team.

"I think they do a good job of when issues come up, they get together and hammer it out," Gase said. "These guys aren't shy about speaking up. They've done a good job of making sure, as a group, they talk through things."

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey also plans to continue protesting Youth Christian Kirk Jersey , but wants people to quit seeing this as an anthem issue. The Tennessee Titans lineman said he will continue protesting by raising his fist at the end of the anthem.

"The biggest thing that we have right now is the way the justice system is set up for minorities," said Casey, whose wife is an attorney. "And that's just what the whole battle is about, trying to bring light to enlighten the things that's going on around the minority community."

The league hasn't been able to reach an agreement. On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he'll insist his players stand for the anthem.

Stills' reaction to Jones' comments?

"I wouldn't expect anything different," Stills said.

Stills said he hadn't spoken much with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about the issue since last year. Ross didn't attend the first day of training camp.

Stills tuned out the anthem debate this offseason by traveling to Victoria Falls, Kruger National Park and Cape Town, where he learned about African culture, went on safaris and tried bungee jumping. More recently, he spent time in Lincoln, Nebraska, with other Dolphins wideouts and a receivers coach he has known since he was in the 10th grade.

"The anthem stuff was becoming a really quiet, quiet topic," Stills said.

No more. Defensive end Robert Quinn Youth Mike Gesicki Jersey , who protested during the anthem while with the Rams last year, was asked following his first Dolphins practice what the league should do about a policy.

"I'll just say one thing: It's called freedom of speech," he said. "Simple as that."

Quinn, Stills and others have been targets of criticism for their protests, which they believe have been misconstrued as unpatriotic.

But Stills was nominated by teammates last year for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, a reflection of his standing in locker room. His latest community project is with the nationwide OK Program, which mentors young black men.

"I think I've done a good job of trying to figure out ways to continue to use my voice and platform for the right things," Stills said, "and put the messaging back in the right direction."

鈥?John Fox helped change the culture in the Chicago Bears’ locker room.He just didn’t produce enough wins to keep his job.The Bears fired Fox on Monday after three losing seasons, ending one of the least successful coaching stints in team history.“Today is the tough part of our results-oriented business,” he said in a statement.While Fox was let go after a 5-11 finish, general manager Ryan Pace got a contract extension through the 2021 season.“We think we have the right structure and we think we have the right people in those positions,” chairman George McCaskey said.“We’ve seen some results in terms of player development and relying primarily on the draft for that development. We just haven’t seen those results on the field in wins and we’re looking forward to that.”Chicago has had four consecutive losing seasons 鈥?each with 10 or more losses. The Bears haven’t finished above .500 since they let Lovie Smith go following a 10-6 finish in 2012. They haven’t been to the playoffs since 2010.Hired shortly after the Bears brought in Pace, Fox leaves with a 14-34 record in three seasons and a .292 winning percentage that ranks as the second lowest in franchise history.Only Abe Gibron was worse 鈥?11-30-1 (.274) from 1972-74.“Our record is a reflection on me as well Cheap Marcus Davenport Jersey ,” Pace said. “But I feel good about where we’re at right now. I feel much better about where we’re at right now than at this time last year and that starts with the quarterback position.”President Ted Phillips apparently sees the same things.“I see the young talent,” he said. “The locker room is a great atmosphere. The players believe in themselves.”Pace said the Bears had not “officially” asked permission to interview other teams’ assistants and that they’re open to coaches with offensive or defensive backgrounds. He would not say if Vic Fangio is in the running or if he hopes to retain him as defensive coordinator.Pace would not say, either, roughly how many candidates he hopes to interview or what traits he’s seeking in a coach.Though McCaskey and Phillips will have input, Pace made it clear the decision on the coach is his. He also said he will continue to have final say on the roster.The next coach will have to get the most out of Mitchell Trubisky. After all, Pace staked his reputation to the quarterback when he traded up a spot with San Francisco to draft him with the No. 2 overall pick last spring.Fox is 133-123 in 16 seasons as a head coach and is one of six coaches to lead two teams to Super Bowl appearances, joining Don Shula, Bill Parcells, Dan Reeves, Dick Vermeil and Mike Holmgren.Fox helped orchestrate quick turnarounds while leading Carolina and Denver to a combined six division titles and seven playoff appearances in 13 years before he took over Chicago in January 2015. But his time with the Bears was forgettable.Fox helped restore some of the professionalism that was missing under former GM Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman. But Fox’s conservative approach and some questionable decisions during games were sore spots.The Bears were 3-15 against the NFC North and dropped all six division games this past season.“I think he built a foundation,” linebacker Sam Acho said. “I think the success that he had here, we’re not going to see until later. Whether I’m on this team or not, I think you’re going to see success in the future.”Cornerback Prince Amukamara said there were plenty of hugs for Fox when he met with the team Monday.“Great, passionate coach Cheap Ronald Jones II Jersey ,” he said. “Didn’t give up on us, didn’t quit on us and that’s very special for a head coach.”Injuries exposing a lack of depth have been a major issue since the regime change.Pace has had some big hits in the draft such as star running back Jordan Howard (2016, fifth round) and notable misses such as oft-injured receiver Kevin White (2015, first round).His record in free agency is shaky, and he has struggled to replace some talented players no longer with the team such as receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, tight end Martellus Bennett and kicker Robbie Gould.The Bears will need to bring in play-making receivers. But with the presence of Trubisky, Howard and running back Tarik Cohen and a promising defense led by end Akiem Hicks, tackle Eddie Goldman and linebacker Leonard Floyd, Pace insisted the team is in a better spot than it was three years ago. He also feels more comfortable in his position.“I feel very comfortable in my shoes, I feel very confident, and I have a lot of good people and a lot of resources around me to help me attack this,” Pace said..
