When Malcolm Jenkins posted his emotional response to his quarterback several weeks earlier, it was part of the process.
The Saints safety spoke on "The Daily Show" Monday evening about several topics, including the emotional messages and conversation with Drew Brees after comments the quarterback made regarding protests by NFL players.
"Yea, I think my interaction with Drew is a microcosm to what we need to do as a country," Jenkins said as he spoke with host Trevor Noah by Skype. "That was the reason I posted [the video]."
Jenkins' was far from the lone criticism heaped on Brees -- even within his own locker room -- after an interview with Yahoo Finance, during which the Saints quarterback said he would "never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States or our country." He went on to explain his connection to the military through his family.
