More recently, a report claimed that, under the direction of McNair, the Texans are intent on avoiding any free agent players who have staged such demonstrations.
On Saturday, Jerome Solomon, a columnist for Houston Chronicle talked with two National Football League agents and said that the Texans don't have any interest in those players who took part in pregame kneel downs in the form of protesting.
A column in the Houston Chronicle on Saturday said, "there is no directive within the organization, but it is considered to be understood that ... the pool of potential signees and draftees will not include anyone who has participated in protests or are likely to".
The Texans did not immediately respond to a request from The Washington Post for comment.
A number of NFL players have since protested, leading to talks between franchise owners and league officials and drawing criticism from US President Donald Trump. However, that was nothing compared to the reaction it received once it became public.
But the organization denied the report calling the claim "categorically false and without merit", Sportsnet reported. McNair apologized for the remark and met the players, but this attempt was not successful as several players walked out.
