Brady Says He Doesn’t Pay Attention To Players Sitting or Kneeling During Anthem; Says He’s Too Busy To Think About Kaepernick (AUDIO)
You can mark Tom Brady down as one person who claims not to pay attention to players actions before, during, or after the National Anthem.
The New England Patriots quarterback called in to WEEI radio on Monday and was asked if he’s paid any type of attention to the Colin Kaepernick situation and the multitude of other players who have been sitting or kneeling during the Anthem.
“Brady says he doesn’t give Kaepernick much thought because his attention “goes a lot of places” at this time of the year … and he’s too busy to think about Colin.
Tom was also pressed on if he was proud that his teammates don’t sit or take a knee during the anthem — to which he explained, “I don’t really pay attention to that.”
Back in 2015, the then-San Francisco 49ers QB took to Twitter and shouted his support of Tom Brady as he dealt with the deflategate saga, stating, “No football in the world is going to help you win by 38! Let it go and let Tom be great!”
Kaepernick remains a free agent and so far only the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens have expressed any real interest in him. All this comes after a controversial season a year ago that saw a media circus follow Kaep’s every movement after kneeling during the National Anthem.
