Brees apologizes for tweet comparing 'bounty' evidence, WMDs


Drew Brees created a stir when he posted a message on his Twitter account Monday night after the NFL revealed some of the evidence it has on the bounty program it says the Saints ran on defense from 2009-2011.

Brees tweeted, "If NFL fans were told there were "weapons of mass destruction" enough times, they'd believe it. But what happens when you don't find any????"

He is now backtracking on those comments by tweeting, "My WMD comment has nothing to do with politics or our brave military. Merely an analogy to show how media influences public perception.  I apologize if the WMD comment offended anyone. Especially our military. There is no one I respect more than our service men and women."
