Drew Brees upset a lot of people with his comments on NFL players protesting racial injustices by kneeling during the National Anthem.  On Thursday morning he apologized for those comments on social media.

The Saints quarterback’s heartfelt apology was addressed to his “friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday.”

Brees vowed to do less talking and more listening.
