“I would never not respect the flag or the national anthem because of what I did. I am an American. I know America has come a long ways in many ways,” Brown told ESPN when asked about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick not standing for the national anthem. (RELATED: Hooksteads Hot Take: America Stood Up For Colin Kaepernick, He Should Stand For The Flag)
