After Drew Brees' controversial comments about the anthem protests, many of his teammates publicly shared their dismay, and it seemed like the Saints locker room was starting to divide.

As much as New Orleans thought they had one of the best locker rooms in the NFL, would this issue alone destroy it?

Well, it seems like that might not be the case. After the Super Bowl MVP apologized in a lengthy Instagram post where he said his comments were "insensitive," it seems like his teammates are ready to accept his apology and stand united with him on an off the field.

Another prominent team leader, All-Pro Demario Davis called Brees' statement "true leadership" and many other Saints players also positively weighed in. Other leaders Craig Robertson and Cameron Jordan seemed pleased by the NFL's career yards leader's apology.

Saints left tackle Terron Armstead, who has a leading role in protecting Brees on the offense, took to Twitter as well to share he had a positive dialogue with his QB.

Brees appears to be reaching out to multiple teammates right now to discuss what's been going on in the United States. While his comments were controversial, he's taking the necessary steps to make those on the Saints know he has their backs.
