Drew Brees and Cam Jordan in communication about national anthem plans

(WVUE) - Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro said Sunday after he and 13 teammates participated in a showing of unity during the national anthem that it was not a planned act. Going forward, the team is communicating to make sure they are all on the same page.

Defensive end Cameron Jordan was part of that display and spoke Wednesday in London about the issue. Here are his quotes in full, as transcribed by the Saints:

Reporter: "What are your thoughts on the events that happened in the United States this past weekend around the NFL and things like the plan in Green Bay for fans and the team to link arms?"

Quarterback Drew Brees stood during the anthem and defended his decision after the game. Here is what he had to say Wednesday after practice:

Reporter: "Piggybacking on Cameron Jordan's comments a little, how much have you guys had a conversation about what may or may not happen when the national anthem is played on Sunday?"
