After the game Thursday, Marshall said he was prepared to lose sponsorship deals:

“I’m going to get a lot of scrutiny and I understand that. In the eyes of a lot of people, I’ll be respected. In the eyes of most people, I’ll be hated,” said Marshall, according to Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post. “I was thinking I could lose endorsements. I could lose likability. I could lose my credibility in my community when I want to do things. I could lose that. But I’m a man of faith and I really prayed about it for a lot of days. I feel good about it. As a man, you can go home and put your head on your pillow and feel good with what you believe and what you stand in, then that’s OK with me.”

Marshall also stated his protest wasn’t against Police or military.

“I’m not against the military. I’m not against the police or America. I’m just against social injustice,” Marshall said. “I’m proud of it. I don’t regret it. I know this is right.”
