He tells us he's disappointed Brees still doesn't understand the message of the kneeling protests ... but he's confident the QB will eventually figure it out and right his wrong.
"He'll probably do some great stuff because of it and he'll probably do even more than he would have done," Boyer said. "That's how I choose to look at it."
"I think that it will eventually bring us more together just like this very difficult time will eventually bring us more together as a country."
So far, Boyer seems to be right ... two of Brees' best teammates -- Michael Thomas and Demario Davis -- have already forgiven him, with Thomas saying Thursday, "One of my brothers made a public statement yesterday that I disagreed with."
"He apologized & I accept it because that’s what we are taught to do as Christians. Now back to the movement! #GeorgeFloyd."
