Earlier this month, the New Orleans Saints quarterback sat down for an interview on Yahoo Finance. During the sit-down, Brees was asked for his opinion on his teammates kneeling during games to protest police brutality.
Brees said, “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America. I envision my two grandfathers who fought for this country during WW2. One in the army and one in the marine corp, both risking their lives to protect our country and to try and make our country and our world a better place. Every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the nation anthem, that’s what I’m thinking about.”
