One Week After NFL Workout, No Team Has Reached Out To Kaepernick

NFL teams still aren’t interested in signing the most controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick representatives reportedly sent a video of his workout to the 25 NFL clubs that didn’t attend on Nov. 16, but “no teams have reached out to work him out, visit with him or sign him,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Kaepernick has been unemployed for three years. He led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and did quite well as quarterback in 2013, but then his career started to wane. In 2016 he started kneeling during the national anthem as a protest of police brutality. His move angered fans but delighted political pundits who loved his anti-America message. Kaepernick was on his way out of the NFL due to his mediocrity, but the protest made him one of the most famous NFL players in the country. Despite not having a playing job, he was hired as a Nike spokesman.

Throughout the past three years, Kaepernick has claimed that the NFL is racist and has colluded to keep him out of the league. He has also said he still wants to play and that he deserves a chance.

So, the NFL gave him one last week. Kaepernick was provided a private workout and interview to show off his talents. The session was to be taped and made available to every team in the league. At the last minute, however, Kaepernick decided this wasn’t good enough and cancelled the workout. More

Had he not pulled the stunt of changing the location of his workout he might have gotten signed, but the antics just showed teams that he was high risk for controversy.

Why would a team want to take a risk to hire someone who would very possibly cause a great deal of controversy, distraction, and damage to their brand? Believing that being “good enough to play” is the only factor for NFL teams to consider is simply childish.
