Colin Kaepernick may be turning into a trend-setter.
The Miami Dolphins are reportedly discussing staging a protest of police brutality against black Americans by either sitting or kneeling during the national anthem at Sunday's game, <b>CBS Miami reported</b> on Friday.
The discussion is obviously provocative, but moreso than usual -- because Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
It's still unclear whether a protest will occur. But if it does, it'll be following in the footsteps of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Kaepernick, who at first sat, but is now kneeling during the national anthem at each one of his games.
Kaepernick has said he is protesting because he couldn't "show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."
"To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
Here's Kaepernick talking about his protest on Wednesday.

Dolphins' safety Reshad Jones implied some players may protest on Sunday.
The Dolphins' Sunday game is against the Seattle Seahawks -- and the Seahawks have already planned a "unification" event during the anthem on Sunday, according to multiple media reports.
Team members will interlock arms and stand during the anthem to support "those who serve in camouflage and also those in blue who served on [9/11] ," receiver Doug Baldwin said in a Facebook video.
Here's Baldwin's video explaining the Seahawks' demonstration.
