In Interview With Oprah, Tom Brady Tackles Kneeling During Anthem, Spirituality, Relationship With Gisele

This Sunday, however, a lengthy interview with the Patriots quarterback will air on the Oprah Winfrey Network as part of Winfrey's "SuperSoul Conversations" series.

Oprah also managed to squeeze in a question about how spiritual Brady is, because, let's be honest, Oprah is allowed to ask anything she wants. Part 1 will be available Monday, June 18, and Part 2 will be available Wednesday, June 20.

Though the league recently banned kneeling during the national anthem, players like Tom Brady are still speaking out in support of teammates who took a knee. The Patriots did have a large group of players kneeling before their Week 3 home game with the Texans.

"I think there were a lot of really good, healthy conversations coming out of it in our locker room", Brady said.

Given that Brady has discussed his friendship with Trump in the past, his comments on the matter will be considered by many to be interesting, even though they're very much in line with what he said a year ago. I've been with guys from all different parts of the country, every color race belief. "I'm like, 'WHAT ARE YOU DOING?'" And that's okay. You can do things for your reasons. You can do things for your reason, they can do things for their reason, and you have respect for that.

Oprah followed with a question to Brady about the nature of the conversations with respect to the anthem.

"We had meetings after practice, talking about how we wanted to deal with that particular situation in time, taking a knee", he said. "We chose to lock arms". I've been playing sports long enough - everyone comes from something different. I think showing respect for everybody in a locker room - a team full of guys trying to go the same direction - you better have that empathy for everybody. "That's what sports are about".

Adding to the drama of the proposal, Brady had in the 2008-09 season torn both his ACL and MCL.

"I just love having to come home to someone that engages me every night. I'm older, wiser", she said. "Just, in some ways we're different, and in some ways we're so similar".
