Many of the NFL players who took part in the national anthem protests that overshadowed this year’s football season were among the league's top-paid athletes, a study shows.

The players who either took a knee, sat down or raised a fist during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" made an average of $3 million more in guaranteed salary than those who didn’t, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

The study was conducted by a 70-student sports and politics class at the University of Cincinnati.
