Super Bowl Champion, legendary tight-end, and Undisputed Co-host Shannon Sharpe heard Drew Brees’s opinion and he reserved some time for him today.
To catch you up, Brees participated in Blackout Tuesday, only to turn around and say kneeling protests are disrespectful to the flag. Then hit another sharp turn and apologized. Shannon has seen it all and he believes the iconic New Orleans Saints quarterback needs to hang up his cleats and retire.
“He issued an apology, Skip, but it’s meaningless because the guys know he spoke his heart the very first time around,” Sharpe said.
He added, “I don’t know what Drew’s going to do, but he probably should just go ahead and retire now. He will never be the same.”
Sharpe detailed what it will be like in the locker room for him and seeing how Saints like Malcolm Jenkins have spoken out against Brees, he may be right.
“Take it from a guy that has been a leader in the locker room for a number of years. What he said, they will never look at him the same because he spoke his heart,” Sharpe said.
Should Brees hang it up?
