Drew Brees didn’t agree with Colin Kaepernick’s anthem protests in 2016.
Brees reiterated his stance that he “will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag.” James took to Twitter on Wednesday to let Brees know that “still” not understanding why Kaepernick had to protest during the anthem.
You literally still don’t understand why Kap was kneeling on one knee??
Regardless of Kaepernick’s intentions, it was as clear in 2016 as it is today, that kneeling during the anthem was seen as disrespectful to a lot more people than just Drew Brees.
Brees reiterated his stance on the protests in response to a report that more NFL players are planning on resuming the kneeling protests in 2020, in light of the death of George Floyd.
