We’ve seen a rash of injuries to NFL quarterbacks, and Colin Kaepernick’s agent has attempted to contact these needy teams.
According to SNY’s Chris Williamson, Kap’s agent has reached out to several teams in need of a quarterback but has not garnered any interest.
The source told Williamson, “Colin is literally in the best shape of his life. He’s been working out five days a week at 5 a.m. for three years. He wants to play and his agent has been contacting teams in need of a quarterback.”
Kap hasn’t played since 2016 and teams believe his presence is too “radioactive” because he believes in putting an end to brutality at the hands of police, and equal treatment under the law for all people.
It’s hard to believe there are 64 quarterbacks in the NFL right now, better than Kap. But that’s what team owners and general managers would have you think.
Quarterbacks like Matt Barkley, Brian Hoyer, Matt Moore, and Josh McCown all have jobs. Surely Kap is capable of competing against players of that caliber.
It has been stated time and again but should never be ignored. The NFL and its owners are blackballing Kap, all to appease the racist portion of their fan bases.
Martin Luther King III believes Kap could be back in the league overnight, if another segment of fans stop supporting the games. In an interview with TMZ, King III said:
"What would change it overnight is if the public decided, 'Okay, we're not going to watch,’ The industry did blackball him, which is not good. He certainly is one of the most talented quarterbacks even today, probably.”
The likelihood of fans “boycotting” the NFL is slim to none. That of course is the great irony.
It is unlikely the majority of NFL fans will stop watching football for any reason. What the owners and league fear the most, has been proven over time to be highly improbable.
Americans love their football and nothing will change that.
