Last year, Colin Kaepernick made headlines and it was not for anything he did on the field. This misguided leftist twit took a knee during the National Anthem to protest the perceived racism in America. Of course, this made no sense considering the millions of dollars he was making playing for the San Franciso 49ers. However, Kaepernick continued with his ridiculous antics and eventually lost his spot on the team.
Well, you would think that this douche canoe would learn his lesson and shut his trap. But, that would imply intelligence. Just last week, Kaepernick claimed that the NFL was racist and that was the reason he remains unsigned. Kaepernick believes that the NFL has blackballed him, but that accusation was quickly shut down.
According to Breitbart:
“First Take” host Molly Qerim asked Schaap if the free agent quarterback is being “blackballed” by NFL owners and that is why he continues to be without a team, but Schaap said he has not seen any evidence of him being blackballed and offered up why he thinks Kaepernick is still unsigned.
“[Y]ou cannot deny that he has been, to some degree, [a] distraction, whatever that means,” Schaap replied. “There’s one thing that NFL owners, NFL general managers don’t want in a backup quarterback, we’ve heard this before, and it’s a distraction. And I think there’s a false equivalency sometimes made, ‘Ok, well, he’s better than [Blaine] Gabbert and Gabbert got signed.’ For what, $1 million? I think we know that Colin Kaepernick wants significantly more money than that. If we’re going to throw around accusations that he’s being blackballed because of his political beliefs, I believe there should be some evidence. And I haven’t seen it.”
Which brings us now to the latest in the whiny Kaepernick saga.
The Seattle Seahawks have recently reached out to Kaepernick and are interested in him as a backup quarterback.
Seahawks GM John Schneider reached out to Colin Kaepernick's agent last Friday. Interest in him as potential backup is legit. @nflnetwork

According to The Wildcard:
The NFL Network’s Mike Silver was the first to report that Seattle general manager John Schneider recently contacted Kaepernick’s agent.
While Seattle coach Pete Carroll acknowledged Monday on KIRO-AM’s “Brock and Salk” show that he was interested in signing either Colin Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III as the backup to Russell Wilson, by all indications, this is the first time an NFL GM has reached out to Kaepernick’s agent.
When asked specifically about Kaepernick or Griffin, Carroll responded, “We’re looking at everybody. We really are. We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.”
Now, I am no sports guru, but according to some people, they have said that Kaepernick is a good quarterback. So, just playing devil’s advocate, even if he were GREAT is the Seattle Seahawks willing to take on such a liability?
I mean already the backlash has begun with just this report coming out. No one wants to be associated with someone who has such blatant disrespect for law enforcement or our military.
And to prove my point that there is already backlash here is a sampling of some of the comments.
If the Seattle Seahawks were smart they would simply pass on this player and move on to someone much better. I mean even if Colin Kaepernick promised to be on his best behavior he will always be a controversial figure. This guy spit in the face of our veterans and disrespected the country with his childish antics. If he had a point to make all he had to do was articulate his thoughts, but no, he chose to be an ass.
I hope that the Seattle Seahawks do not extend an offer to this ungrateful piece of you know what. Considering that he is still on his soapbox screaming racism proves to me that he has not learned his lesson. If the Seahawks do decide to sign him then they deserve to lose fans and profits.
In all honesty, maybe Kaepernick needs to be unemployed a bit longer in order, to learn a lesson in real humility.
Share if you hope that the Seattle Seahawks pass on Colin Kaepernick!
