Drew Brees Says Saints Will Kneel Before Anthem, Stand During
On Monday Night Football earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys basically gave teams a way to make everyone happy when they kneeled before the playing of the National Anthem, and then collectively stood while it was being sung.
On Friday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees took to Twitter and inform everybody that they will be doing the exact same thing this Sunday before they take on the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in London.
As a way to show respect to all, our #Saints team will kneel in solidarity prior to the national anthem & stand together during the anthem.

As many as ten Saints players elected to stay seated before last weeks game in a day that seen at least 1 player from each team playing that day participating in some type of protest.
