New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently spoke to Stephen Colbert regarding how the anthem protests affected atmosphere in the locker room.
Brady said the protests, “brought up a lot of healthy discussion in the locker room.” It helped him gain a better understanding for his teammates.
“On our team, there wasn’t too much [protesting], but I thought it brought up a lot of healthy discussion in the locker room,” Brady said to Stephen Colbert. “I think the great thing about sports is that it brings a lot of guys together — a lot of guys from all over the country, from all different backgrounds and cultures. I have such a healthy respect for the guys that I play with. It’s great to hear their stories, too.”
