Richard Sherman joined a large group of NFL players angered and saddened by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees saying he still believes kneeling during the national anthem is “disrespecting the flag” on Wednesday.
The 49ers star cornerback called Brees “beyond lost” and made it clear the peaceful protest never had anything to do with going against the military.
Sherman recently spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer about the importance of white quarterbacks speaking up right now regarding racism and police brutality in America after George Floyd, an African American man in Minneapolis, was killed last week in police custody.
Brees is probably not the man for the job.
