On the heels of Bob McNair's controversial "inmates running the prison" comment, a coalition of National Football League players has extended an invitation to the Houston Texans owner, commissioner Roger Goodell and unsigned quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a Monday meeting in Philadelphia at which they hope to address players' "immediate concerns before additional progress can be made". In fact, players on the team he owns were reportedly very upset about it.

Today, the Texans owner released yet another statement, this time trying to explain exactly what he meant when he said, "We can't let the inmates run the prison".

The comment was published in an ESPN The Magazine story about two recent days of meetings among owners, players and others to discuss the protests that have drawn the ire of President Donald Trump.

"As far as the protests are concerned, I think, people are going to feel how they feel about it", Brown said. "I wanted to answer their questions".

McNair just issued a statement saying, "I regret that I used that expression".

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Hopkins will be in Seattle and start when the team takes on the Seahawks on Sunday, adding the player took "a personal day".

Amazon Launches Service That Allows Delivery Drivers To Open Your Front Door
Amazon Key not only offers in-home deliveries but also will eventually offer in-home services, such as cleaning and pet-sitting. Denver is expected to be among the cities where Amazon starts letting customers give package carriers access to their homes.

About 10 players, including Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, left the facility Friday, the source said.

Former NFL star punter Chris Kluwe in October of 2015 penned an open letter to McNair, in his own unique way, asking if the Texas billionaire is a "cowhumping glue-huffer stupid enough to buy in on clearly outdated ideals of bigotry and intolerance?"

After outrage and suggestions his remarks were racist, McNair issued an apology through the Texans' public relations dept., while denying he had been referring to the players. "I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players". That was a meeting where they were all speaking amongst each other where they thought it was confidential and it got out. "If any of the players were offended by what was reported, I'm sorry about that, and I apologized to them for that".

McNair has remained a supporter of SC academics and athletics. "We are again honored to join with other Gamecock supporters in supporting the new football operations center at the University of SC".

"Janice and I have been privileged to support great initiatives in higher education and athletics", McNair said in January.
