Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins has remained publicly quiet, for the most part, since posting a pair of emotional videos last Wednesday, in the aftermath of the controversial Drew Brees remarks linking anthem protests to “disrespect” of the flag. On Tuesday, Jenkins appeared on CBS This Morning, and the topic came up. Sort of.
Jenkins generally was asked for his “thoughts on that day and looking back at the reaction.”
“I look back, and I’m glad that I chose to post that video,” Jenkins said, reiterating that he spoke directly to Brees after creating the video but decided to post the video anyway. (Jenkins had posted an earlier video that contained much stronger language, but Jenkins deleted it before posting the second video.)
