INDIANAPOLIS -- The wife of former Colts cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who was released Oct. 4, is accusing the team of letting her husband go for taking a knee during the national anthem.Terricka Cromartie wrote an Instagram post after seeing comments from Colts owner Jim Irsay saying football stadiums are the wrong venue for players to be kneeling during the national anthem to show their displeasure in police brutality and racial oppression. The post was later taken down, but it stated what she thinks the attitude of the team toward players:You are Nothing More than an Entertainer. Just Shut and do what we say. You have No rights as along as you are working for me.. there are other places for you to fight and stand for what you believe, the post said.The post added: One things for sure I know my husband was told Not to take a Knee and he went with his heart and he took one. And that cost him his Job.. and Clearly this Statement backs that up... Just a Paid To put on a show.Irsay was asked about players kneeling during the anthem while at the NFL owners meetings in Houston earlier this week.It hasnt been a positive thing, Irsay told reporters. What we all have to be aware of as players, owners, PR people, equipment managers, is when the lights go on we are entertainment. We are being paid to put on a show. There are other places to express yourself.Cromartie also posted to Instagram, and although he didnt mention his release, he appeared to take issue with Irsays comments.The Colts referred to coach Chuck Paganos statement on Oct. 5 when asked about Cromarties wifes comments. Pagano, addressing the cornerbacks release a day earlier, referred to it as a football decision.Ive said it before and I will say it again, every decision that we make as far as our roster goes and this team goes, is based on two things -- what is best for this team and what gives us the best chance to win, Pagano said.Cromartie became the only Colts player to take a knee when he did it during the anthem before the Sept. 25 game against the San Diego Chargers. He did it again the following week when the Colts played the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.Cromartie, a four-time Pro Bowler, had played so poorly against the Jaguars in the first half that he was benched in the second half.The Colts were in position to release Cromartie at the time because they were getting healthy in the secondary. Cornerback Darius Butler was returning from a hamstring injury, which meant the Colts would have their top three cornerbacks -- Vontae Davis, Butler and Patrick Robinson -- back in the lineup.Theres a chance Cromartie would have been inactive for some games because the team likes Rashaan Melvin as its fourth cornerback.Colts tight end Dwayne Allen has consistently taken a knee toward the end of the national anthem throughout his career. He?explained in a video released through the team?Tuesday that he does so not as a protest, but to say a prayer for every man that steps on the field. On Wednesday, he discussed the backlash he has received?from some fans that have sent him hateful messages because they misinterpreted his actions.

Despite a glorified picking first in the school playground style, the draft has become a showpiece event for the sport, and rightly so.You can watch the first round live on Sky Sports 1 from midnight on Thursday. Here’s a beginner’s guide on what to look out for...Quarterback crucialThis is one to ease you in to proceedings, as we know that quarterbacks will be selected with the first two picks of the draft. Los Angeles Rams made the bold move of trading up from the 15th pick in the first round to number one, followed by Philadelphia Eagles moving from eighth to second.They each gave up a multitude of picks in this years and next years draft to Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns respectively for the privilege of picking the top two quarterbacks in this years class, Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. Jared Goff, quarterback for the California Golden Bears, is the other top prospect in the draft A franchise quarterback is always seen as the quickest way to turn a team’s fortunes around and both the Rams and Eagles are besotted by the top two signal callers this year, hence the trades to ensure they land one.Goff is seen as the most pro-ready, but Wentz supposedly has greater potential, so it will be fascinating to see in which order theyre selected.And if, by some incredible shock, only one or none of those quarterbacks are picked, well that will be fun to watch too!First RoundThursdays draft covers just the first in a total of seven rounds. For 2016, only 31 of the 32 teams in the NFL gets a pick in the first round, rather than the usual 32.This anomaly is due to New England Patriots selection being forfeited as punishment for their participation in the Deflategate scandal, where they supposedly deflated footballs to gain an advantage over Indianapolis Colts in a playoff win on their way to success in Superbowl XLIX. Tom Brady (L), pictured during the controversial 2015 AFC Championship Game As a result - barring a trade - the Patriots first pick will be in the second round, 60th overall.As for the other teams, what number they pick at is based on their performance in the previous season, from worst to first. So as Super Bowl winners, Denver Broncos are last to pick at 31, while Tennessee - holders of the worst record in the 2015 season - were due to pick first overall before their blockbuster trade with Los Angeles. Speaking of which...Blockbuster tradesJust because there has already been some jostling for premium positions with those trades made by the Rams and Eagles, it does not mean weve seen the last of them either in the hours before Draft Day, or as it is unfolding. Colin Kaepernick struggled in 2015 for the San Francisco 49ers and is supposedly seeking a trade Trades will almost certainly take place as teams look to guarantee that the player they want is available by the time they pick, and the surest way to do that is to leapfrog up the order by offering lower round picks, or even players in exchange for the privilege to pick higher.ddddddddddddBig names such as San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick have all been touted as possible trade bait, and any such moves will cause quite the stir in Chicago.Chicago making noiseChicago hosts the draft again. It’s the second time straight for the Windy City, rewarded for doing a sterling job last year when staging the first NFL Draft outside of New York since 1963. Graphics show the Chicago Bears pick is coming in during the 2015 Draft Look out for local Bears fans to stamp their own unique imprint on proceedings. Some of the best moments of Draft days past have been the ‘colourful’ reactions by the New York fans to picks by their beloved Giants and Jets, so Chicago’s selection with the 11th pick will be worth watching.Tears on the telephoneSomeone will cry. In fact, almost all of them cry. Keep your eyes peeled when the camera cuts to a tearful giant in the green room hugging their family and agent as it should give you a headstart on who the selection with the next pick will be.Things don’t always go to plan, though, as some are left sitting anxiously, waiting for the phone to ring with the cameras circling and the room emptying. Alex Smith (far left) was selected first, ahead of Aaron Rodgers (third left) in 2005 Even Green Bay Packers’ great Aaron Rodgers wasn’t selected until the 24th pick in the 2005 Draft.For those who choose not to attend, the entertainment is provided when the camera cuts to them with their friends and family assembled in their living room, who realising they’re on TV, bundle on the player picked like they are trying to sack a quarterback.Character issues versus the unknownA player’s talent is always the main pull towards them being a top pick. But sometimes their questionable character can see them drop down the pecking order, and similarly some unknown players or ones with bags of potential but have yet to produce consistently, can go higher than expected. Where would Riyad Mahrez be drafted now in comparison to before the Premier League season? Consider if you will, Eden Hazard versus Riyad Mahrez in a Draft-style scenario before this years Premier League. Who would have been picked higher at the start of the season, and who would you pick now?Follow the 2016 NFL Draft on Sky Sports 1 from midnight on Thursday and via our live blog here at www.skysports.com/nfl Also See: Making sense of the Combine Ram-Titans: A good deal? 2015 Draft: Non first round surprises 2015 Draft: Hits and misses ' ' '
