“Although I am touched and honored to be selected for such an award, the ongoing controversy with NFL players’ disrespect for the national flag forces me to decline to participate in the presentation,” Wells said.

“I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails. Since this award is tainted with the dishonorable actions of the NFL and its players, I cannot accept it,” he added.

The NFL has been struggling to regain its footing following weeks of players choosing to “take a knee” during the performance of the US national anthem.

The ensuing controversy gained national attention when President Trump called for a total boycott of the NFL until officials and owners require players to stand during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

French President Emmanuel Macron honored American World War II veterans during an emotional speech before both Houses of Congress Wednesday, saying “On behalf of France, thank you.”

Macron addressed the US lawmakers during his official state visit to Washington this week, noting the attendance of Robert Jackson, a veteran of the Second World War.

“Since 1776, we, the American and French people, have had a rendezvous with freedom. And with it comes sacrifices. That is why we are very honored by the presence today of Robert Jackson a World War II veteran. Robert took part in the D-Dday landing. He fought for our freedom 74 years ago. Sir, on behalf of France, thank you. I bow to your courage and your devotion,” Macron said.

The European leader also thanked American poet Alan Seeger who enlisted in the French army to help the ally nation during the first World War.
