Default Tampa Bay Buccaneer's Mike Evans sits during the national anthem to protest election of Donald Trump

Tampa Bay Buccaneer's Mike Evans did not stand during the national anthem during the team's game on Sunday
The wide receiver is protesting against president-elect Donald Trump
Evans said: 'It's just who he is. It's well-documented what he's done. I'm not gonna stand for something I don't believe in. That's the end of that'
The 23-year-old cited that Trump is 'not right' and he will continue to not stand as long as Trump is president
In a statement, the team said they 'recognize every individual's constitutional right to freedom of speech'
