Allen Robinson reacts to national anthem comments made by Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is under fire Wednesday after offering his opinion about players kneeling during the national anthem. In case you missed it, here's what Brees said:

Players from around the league expressed disgust for what they deemed a short-sighted and out-of-touch stance, including Brees' teammates Michael Thomas and Malcolm Jenkins.

Bears players responded too, including Allen Robinson, who offered this opinion on Twitter:

Robinson wasn't the only Bear (both past and present) who was offended by Brees.
