The saga continues for one of the most controversial names in the history of the NFL. Colin Kaepernick has been out of the league for the past 3 seasons and was unable to get a job even as an extra body for training camp. Seemed odd for someone who was a Super Bowl caliber QB, and one of the more dynamic pass-run option guys in the league at that time. Fast forward to 2020 and now even Rodger Goodell is admitting his regrets on the stance he took against Colin’s actions during the national anthem.
Goodell has now even gone as far as to encourage teams to look into signing him on their rosters.
Now the momentum is building ever so slightly to go ahead and end the so called “black-ball” of Colin Kaepernick. Say what you will about the issue but don’t be surprised if teams start to pick up the phone and bring him in for a workout.
Brett Favre had some thoughts on the issue and even put Kaepernick is the realm of “a hero” and compared his sacrifices to those of the late and great Pat Tilman.
Say what you will about political stances it’s arrogant to say he simply wasn’t signed because he wasn’t good enough, he was, at least to be a 2nd or 3rd string guy. Teams didn’t want to inherent the PR nightmare that would have come with his new signing and until they start admitting that was the driving force for him not being on a roster, than all the other talks about what he did and lost are just empty words used to sound politically correct. It will be interesting if any teams take up Rodger Goodell’s words and extended interests to have him possibly on their team this upcoming year.
