A pair of NFL quarterbacks issued apologies Thursday for controversial comments they made.
Jamal Adams is doubting the sincerity of their sentiments.
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints twice publicly expressed regret for speaking out against NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. Buffalo Bills rookie Jake Fromm, meanwhile, apologized for a past text message he sent in which he said “only elite white people” should have firearms.
Shortly after both signal-callers addressed their respective matters, Adams took to Twitter to effectively reject the apologies.

You and Drew aren’t really sorry.
Save the bullshit ass apologies. The truth just came out, and you two aren’t the only ones! https://t.co/WT2yfzYlan

As for Fromm, Bills offensive coordinator made it clear Friday the 21-year-old “has a lot of work to do to earn the trust of his teammates back,” per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
Adams, a safety for the New York Jets, wasn’t the only noteworthy player to disregard the apologies made by Brees and Fromm. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman on Twitter expressed similar thoughts.
