ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner spoke with TMZ Sports in Los Angeles, saying he would 100 percent support teammates who wanted to kneel during the National Anthem.

Warner said he would stand to honor the military - including his wife, Brenda Warner, who served as a Marine Corporal - but said no matter what he'd do personally, he would always support his team members' right to protest.

Warner told TMZ that he understands the protest isn't about disrespecting the armed forces, and hopes others do, too.

"This has been about social injustice, social equality and that's what they're standing up for and, I don't care if you're my teammate or not, I'm always gonna stand up and believe for that," he said.
