NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has apologized for comments he made in an interview regarding his opposition to kneeling during the national anthem.
Now, his wife has apologized as well, saying, “We are the problem.”
Brittany Brees shared those words in an Instagram post Saturday along with a Bible verse and two quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.
“To say, ‘I don’t agree with disrespecting the flag,’ I now understand was also saying I don’t understand what the problem really is," Brittany Brees wrote in a lengthy post shared on the couple’s foundation page.
Her husband was asked Wednesday in an interview with Yahoo! to revisit the protests of former NFL quarterback Kaepernick, who silently took a knee during the anthem before games to raise awareness of police brutality and racial injustice.
