Victor Cruz: 'You've got to respect the flag'

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz wouldn't have taken the route Colin Kaepernick did with the national anthem, as Cruz prefers to "respect the flag".

Victor Cruz on Colin Kaepernick: "I think, personally, the flag is the flag. Regardless of how you feel about things that are going on in America today, and the things that are going on across the world with gun violence and things of that nature, you've got to respect the flag, and you've got to stand up with your teammates. It's bigger than just you, in my opinion. I think you go up there, you're with a team, and you go and you know you pledge your allegiance to the flag and sing the national anthem with your team and then you go about your business, whatever your beliefs are. Colin is his own man, he decided to sit down and that is his prerogative but on a personal standpoint, I think you have to stand up there with your team and understand and it's this game and what's going on around this country is bigger than just you."
