A handful of Seahawks have voiced displeasure upon hearing the owner of the Houston Texans, Robert C. McNair, say ‘we can’t have the inmates running the prison’ while referring to recent player protests.

McNair made the comment during an NFL meeting that included commissioner Roger Goodell and players. The Bleacher Report says McNair made the comments after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made a speech about finding a solution which he believes is impacting the league.

McNaid apologized on Friday, via Twitter.

But it wasn’t lost on Bobby Wagner, Richard Sherman, Cliff Avril, and Nazair Jones.
