Del Rio's tweets come only days after the President said he was likely to boycott football over players' - including running back Adrian Peterson's - decision to kneel during the national anthem in the 2020 season as a peaceful protest.

Head coach Ron Rivera has said he would support his players if they decide to kneel. 

The team declined to comment on Del Rio's tweets.
