I want that guy to be one of the smarter guys in the room. And it seems like every time he's opening his mouth, it's something that is dividing our country and not pulling us together. And that has nothing to do with my feelings about the anthem. But it's just my take in 24 hours. So that's how I

It was my first time having a chance to talk to him. I'll leave it at that. That was just what it was. I'm sure he's got a handful of things he's got to do stepwise to get himself back in position to sign with a club and play football again. It made sense to me to get to know him a little
