"I know Drew as a person and I just don't think that's him ..." It will never be the same ...
"I think he has to maybe now get out there and try and do some things physically to show that he's putting his money where his mouth is and maybe get on camera to talk about those things so people can look in him in the face, look him in the eye and see if he's honest or not".
Boyer continued: "I also understand what he was talking about in the other part of that video when the anthem plays, because I feel the same way".
"They said, 'Drew, we know your character".
