Don't be so cynical.

At least consider that Brees is being sincere. He didn't sacrifice any of his core beliefs in his apology, nor did he suggest that people should kneel during the anthem. He simply acknowledged that his statement was made during a sensitive time, and he signaled understanding for those who might feel differently about what they should do when the anthem is played. I believe it is cynical to think he couldn't have come to that mindset sincerely. It's possible your interpretation is right; but given what I've seen from Brees in the past and the views of his teammates who know him well, my guess is that he simply opened his mind up and regretted some of what he said. Is that really so hard to believe?
