Tom Brady sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey, and it's a conversation that involves some topics that generally don't get covered in Brady's usual press conferences at Gillette Stadium.
The Oprah Winfrey Network released a series of clips from the interview, which will air in its entirety on Sunday at 11 a.m., in which Brady is asked questions that run the gamut from his personal life to his spiritual beliefs.
Perhaps the discussion most relevant to the sports world involved the matter of players kneeling during the national anthem. It was an issue that really jumped to the forefront of American consciousness last year, after President Donald Trump spoke out against players who had taken knee. Following those comments, the number of players who went to a knee during the national anthem increased significantly.
