Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith believes the NFL "dropped the ball" with its new policy that forbids players from sitting or taking a knee on the field during the national anthem.

He said the league's policy to fine teams for players protesting likely will only serve to "stir things up " between players and owners this coming season.

"You're being told to be quiet Alex Rodriguez Jersey , when it could have been done together to figure out what we can do to move forward and what would be best for the players," Smith said.

Smith has long been outspoken on public matters because he feels the platform of being a professional athlete should be used for the betterment of society.

"It's going to be a long-term process, and we're just trying to do our part," he said. "That's essentially what the protests started with and we have to continue with. It's not so much about the protests but the work going forward."

Smith said he was disappointed Authentic James Shields Jersey , but not surprised by the league ruling.

"At the end of the day, the league is about money, it's a business," Smith said. "To try to silence those guys when they're trying to do the right thing for our country Authentic D.J. Fluker Jersey , I don't know what to say about it."
