Drew Brees said ( about Drew Brees ) : “Or, ‘I hope you can’t play with your kids when you get done playing,’ Stuff like that". The NFL protests against police brutality have returned to the news in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last week. Floyd is a black man who died after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The death has been ruled a homicide by an independent medical examiner. Chauvin was originally charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He now faces a charge of second-degree murder, and three other officers involved in the death have been charged aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree manslaughter. Down in New Orleans, Brees said he supported the cause but disagreed with using the time during the anthem to communicate it. He explained his position during an interview with Yahoo! Finance.

Drew Brees said ( about Drew Brees ) : “Or, ‘I hope you can’t play with your kids when you get done playing,’ Stuff like that". The NFL protests against police brutality have returned to the news in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last week. Floyd is a black man who died after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The death has been ruled a homicide by an independent medical examiner. Chauvin was originally charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He now faces a charge of second-degree murder, and three other officers involved in the death have been charged aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree manslaughter. Down in New Orleans, Brees said he supported the cause but disagreed with using the time during the anthem to communicate it. He explained his position during an interview with Yahoo! Finance. "I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country,” External link

Drew Brees said ( about Drew Brees ) : “Or, ‘I hope you can’t play with your kids when you get done playing,’ Stuff like that". The NFL protests against police brutality have returned to the news in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last week. Floyd is a black man who died after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The death has been ruled a homicide by an independent medical examiner. Chauvin was originally charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He now faces a charge of second-degree murder, and three other officers involved in the death have been charged aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree manslaughter. Down in New Orleans, Brees said he supported the cause but disagreed with using the time during the anthem to communicate it. He explained his position during an interview with Yahoo! Finance.

Drew Brees said ( about Drew Brees ) : “Or, ‘I hope you can’t play with your kids when you get done playing,’ Stuff like that". The NFL protests against police brutality have returned to the news in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last week. Floyd is a black man who died after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The death has been ruled a homicide by an independent medical examiner. Chauvin was originally charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He now faces a charge of second-degree murder, and three other officers involved in the death have been charged aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree manslaughter. Down in New Orleans, Brees said he supported the cause but disagreed with using the time during the anthem to communicate it. He explained his position during an interview with Yahoo! Finance. "I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country,” External link
