Last year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem before games to protest about the way blacks are treated in the United States. This distracted him so much that he performed terribly during the season, and he has now found himself a free agent.
Unfortunately for Kaepernick, however, most teams want nothing to do with him after his race-baiting protests.
Mercury News reported that an anonymous AFC general manager said that while a few teams are open to working with Kaepernick, “the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did.”
Kaepernick was hoping he would be resigned by the 49ers, but that does not seem likely now given the fact that the team just acquired free agents Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.
“The likelihood of that happening has gone down significantly, but we’re not going to close our mind or our options on anyone, including him,” said general manager John Lynch.
