Bennett, as noted by Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, has not stood for the National Anthem since 2016. As a member of the Seahawks, he sat on the sidelines, and with the Eagles and Patriots he remained in the locker room.
Whatever Jones said or did, he was confident last week that this would be the end result, saying, “I’m satisfied that, in Michael, we’ve got a player who knows how we do it here with the Cowboys.” The arrangement was presumably finalized before Dallas even traded for the defensive lineman.

As we all know Jerry Jones has strict standing for the Anthem policy and it looks like Bennett, who has jumped around a lot to different teams, isn’t going to risk getting kicked off another.
