Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted that he'd retire from football if he was forced to stand for the anthem

Titans receiver Rishard Matthews threatened to quit if the NFL makes it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.

Matthews' response Thursday to a reporter from his verified account was captured by a screen grab.

The answer came after a WSMV producer asked Matthews if he'd stay in the locker room during the anthem if the National Football League created a rule.

Matthews deleted the tweet shortly after, but a screenshot had already been saved by the news producer.

Titans WR Rishard Matthews said on Twitter that he would quit playing in the NFL if they began requiring teams to stand for the National Anthem.

China exports and imports both increase
The country's trade surplus last month narrowed to 193 billion yuan ($29.3 billion) from 286.49 billion yuan in August. The surplus with the United States reached 28.1 billion in September, up from 24.9 billion in September of past year .

Matthews played four seasons with the Dolphins from 2012 to 2015.

Since President Trump's September 23 criticism of NFL players' national anthem protests, Matthews has vowed to continue kneeling until the President apologizes.

Whether or not Matthews actually follows through with his threat is still to be seen, and of course, that's assuming the National Football League passes a rule saying players must stand for the anthem, which may or may not happen.

The Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Matthews previously refrained from protesting in respect of his brother, but after Trump's comments, he said his brother would understand his intentions going forward.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo Tuesday he believes players should stand when the song plays. The receiver explained he didn't want his protest seen as a "publicity stunt". They tried to have a silent protest, and look what happened. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country".
