ESPN has the details.

“[Lynch] said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself,'” Del Rio said. “I said, ‘So you understand how I feel. I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I’m going to respect you as a man. You do your thing, and we’ll do ours.’ So that’s a non-issue for me.”

Photos circulated on social media Sunday showing Lynch standing for the anthem during his Seahawks days, including for Super Bowl LXIX.
