Drew Brees Reportedly Had ‘Tears In His Eyes’ When He Apologized To Teammates Over Anthem Comments

Drew Brees has done a complete 180 in the past few days over his controversial anthem comments.

On Wednesday, Brees went viral after he said players who kneel during the anthem to protest police brutality are “disrespecting the flag” during an interview with Yahoo Finance.

After getting called out by his teammates on social media, Brees has since apologized several times for his comments.

According to a report from Nick Underhill, Brees was extremely emotional during a team meeting and had ‘tears in his eyes” when he apologized to his teammates over his comments.

On Friday night, Brees even fired back at President Trump on why the kneeling during the anthem has nothing to do with the flag.

Pretty wild how quickly Brees changed his tune after receiving backlash.
