NFL free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant is the latest player to weigh in on the Drew Brees situation that has been dominating the sports news cycle the last two days.

Bryant and Brees were briefly teammates in 2018, before the three-time Pro Bowl wideout tore his Achilles, ending his Saints tenure before it could truly begin. Tonight, Bryant offered his thoughts on Brees’ comments on the possibility of NFL players resuming their protests during the national anthem before games.

“I kinda feel sorry for Drew Brees but then again I don’t because I would bet he never had to be accountable for the things he expresses or understands how it feels to have to pick and chose carefully what to say…something we know all to well.. this will pass in due time,” Bryant wrote.
