Sedrick Ellis, a former defensive tackle for the New Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears, joined the guys of "The Conservative Cartel" to discuss what he thinks about athletes who kneel during the national anthem.

Ellis highlighted the emotional connection between football and the military which he believes are quintessential and interconnected in American culture.

Social media, according to Ellis, has amplified these discussions in a negative way and he believes Americans should be having these important discussions [about race relations, police brutality, and protests] but in a respectful manner.
