(AP) -- Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey says he plans to protest during the national anthem this season, even if it means getting a fine.
Casey tells CNN that "I'm going to take a fine this year, why not? I'm going to protest during the flag. That's what I'm going to say now."
Titans officials had no immediate response.
The NFL approved a policy in May allowing players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room but forbidding them from sitting or taking a knee if they're on the field.
The NFL Players Association has filed a grievance with the league to challenge the policy.
Casey raised a fist at the end of the national anthem before games last season.
