    Default The ongoing saga of Colin Kaepernick

    A lot of discussion has taken place over why this guy has not been picked up by a team yet. This article may help provide insight:

    There has been speculation about whether his priorities lie with football or social work, and I'm leaning towards the latter so hard that I just fell on my left side. I'm sure his agent would LOVE to get him on a team and make some money off that.
    The guy prepares and releases a statement about planning to stand for the anthem in '18, and I don't think anybody cared. This latest rant just shows that he's a loose cannon with a social agenda and that any team that doesn't trust him is not exactly stupid.

    I'm thinking this dude wants to cement his "legacy" as being the opposite of Pat Tillman.

    CK was last reported exploring genetic roots and his personal independence at Ghana, Africa, on July 4th, 2017. He's apparently not thinking about football at all these days. I wonder if the man has turned the page in his life and moved on from pro sports. If so, I wish CK well.

    That should put an end to the "why haven't any racist NFL teams signed the wonderfully talented but unemployed Colin Kapernick?" stories by two-bit hacks trying to make a name for themselves.

    The Baltimore owner is reportedly unsure about signing CK now. I bet the Ravens were always unsure about the young QB's state of mind, just like the other 31 owners.

    CK has two choices: Cling to principles and friends and be a normal fan of the game. Or, compartmentalize the politics and try to earn his way back into a pro QB job.

    No owner with a contract in hand is going to chase down CK today, I guarantee that.

    I wonder what CK's agent is thinking tonight. That camp is strangely quiet. I expect certain sports media to chime in soon.

    I don't think anything CK says publicly will matter......at least until a team actually signs him. Meanwhile not only has he been passed over in favor of QB's with a lesser level of success than he's had, we now see one coming out of retirement having been offered a contract. The most objective thing one could rationalize about signing Cutler is that it reunites him with Gase. But in my opinion, Cutler's signing in conjunction with the "pray for us" comment from the Ravens is a clear indication that CK's performance as a QB is being totally ignored because of his controversial stance and has nothing to with whether he can help a team and/or what it's "system" is. Who says things like that about a player (praying?). This is a business who's primary goal is to win.
