Warning: Story contains coarse language
Drew Brees' comments on players kneeling in protest during the U.S. national anthem quickly drew criticism from other NFL players on Wednesday.
In 2016, the New Orleans Saints quarterback said he agreed with Colin Kaepernick's message in protesting police brutality and racial injustice, but not his method. Asked in an interview Wednesday about the potential of players kneeling during the anthem when the NFL returns, Brees said, "I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country."
Stars from around the league, including Brees' teammate Michael Thomas, weighed in via Twitter on the quarterback's remarks.
