Cardinals coach Bruce Arians' full quote on Colin Kaepernick's decision to not stand for the Star-Spangled Banner over the weekend: "I respect his right as an American. Freedom of speech is one thing. I disagree with it. I want to stand and cheer for all the people who've lost their life of every race and religion, gender, defending that flag. So it's not my opinion, but I respect his right."

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys have placed defensive lineman Shaneil Jenkins (knee), linebacker James Morris (shoulder) and cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon on waived/injured list. Cornerback Josh Thomas (thumb) was placed on injured reserve.

More from Drew Brees on Colin Kaepernick: "I think the important point to make here is that flag symbolizes, represents the freedoms that you have the chance as an American to exercise. So sitting down for that, that is a blatant disrespect of the freedoms that that gives you. Like it's an oxymoron that you're sitting down, disrespecting that flag that has given you the freedom to speak out."

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders announced their roster cuts to get down to 75 players on Monday, the most noteworthy moves being...TE Gabe Holmes (ankle) placed on IR, and WR Max McCaffrey, DT Leon Orr, PK Giorgio Tavecchio and TE Colton Underwood among those waived.

Drew Brees said he felt compelled to speak out against Colin Kaepernick's method of protest Monday, saying it was "bothering me all day long." The Saints quarterback, who is a passionate military supporter, said the American flag is "sacred." "I disagree. I wholeheartedly disagree," Brees said. "Not that he wants to speak out about a very important issue. No, he can speak out about a very important issue. But there's plenty of other ways that you can do that in a peaceful manner that doesn't involve being disrespectful to the American flag."

The Seahawks have cut DB Brandon Browner. The original "Legion of Boom" member returned to the team on a one-year deal after two seasons away from the Seattle. Browner practiced as a backup safety, and Pete Carroll had hoped that the veteran could match up with tight ends, but the experiment didn't work out.

The Redskins have some health issues along the line, with guard Spencer Long nursing an ankle injury and guard Shawn Lauvao still working his way back from an ankle injury. Guard Arie Kouandjio hasn't had a great summer in his second season.
