Minnesota Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf told reporters that the organization supports the NFL's new anthem policy and each member of the team will be on the same page. 

League owners approved a new policy last month that requires players and league personnel on the sideline to stand for the national anthem but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they desire. 

The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other personnel do not show respect for the anthem. Those clubs will also have the option to fine any team personnel for the infraction. 

"Whatever we do, we're going to do as a team," Wilf said, via the Star Tribune. 

Coach Mike Zimmer is on record as saying the team will stand for the anthem. 

"I think it's important we stand for the anthem," he said recently. "A lot of people have died for that flag. That flag represents our country and what we stand for."
