Wentz’s hot start has the bootleggers going wild: Hustlers were selling bootleg Wentz T-shirts on two different Center City corners this morning, and online there are a ton of Wentz bootleg jerseys of various styles and colors.

A number of NFL players from different teams have joined Colin Kaepernick in making demonstrations during the national anthem since the 49ers quarterback sat down while the song was being played prior to a 49ers preseason game.
