Getty Images New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a oppurtunity to clarify his comments about players in the NFL not trusting commissioner Roger Goodell. Brees sat down with Marshall Faulk of the NFL Network during Inside Training Camp Live.  “I was asked a direct question: How do players in the league feel about the Commissioner? I’ve talked to many, many players, obviously, I’m on the executive committee of the Player Association,” Brees said. “So I talk to a lot of the guys who are involved in the union, and certainly my teammates and others. And I think that there is a general feeling that the players don’t trust the Commissioner. “So I was asked a direct question and I answered it directly and honestly. By no means was I trying to be disrespectful, I was just being honest.” Brees says he’s always been direct with Goodell and always will be. “It just happens to be that the big topic or issue this offseason has been the bounty allegations,” Brees said. “Unfortunately, my team, my organization, has been directly affected in a very negative way by those allegations. The process is still ongoing and I think that we’ve said and done as much as we can do to prove our innocence,” Brees said. “I would say that we felt the process from the very beginning has not been fair. But I think if you really want to look at where we’re at right now, it’s not over. I think that we believe the Commissioner has a great opportunity to come to a positive resolution.”
