Former National Football League QB Colin Kaepernick is desperate to get back into the NFL after years out of the game, but no team is interested in the man who once loved dropping to his knees on the sidelines.
Kaepernick held a workout last week in Riverdale, Georgia, rescheduling from a previous workout that was set up with the NFL. Representatives from seven different NFL teams still attended despite short notice, and Kaepernick sent video of his workout to the 25 teams that did not send representatives.
Not one single NFL team has expressed interest in the has-been, who has too much baggage for teams to be willing to roll the dice. Kaepernick was a social justice icon for a period, but that dollar has now dried up. He is yesterday’s news with new professional victims like Jussie Smollett stealing his headlines, but the 32-year-old remains desperate to keep himself relevant.
Even ESPN analysts – who have been notoriously biased in favor of the athlete throughout his anti-American stunts over the years – believe that his career is officially over.
“The fact that the NFL tried to spark interest in Kaepernick last week, and could not, and that his reps made sure that video of the workout was delivered to every team, are just the latest signs that the chances are bleak that a team will step forward and sign him,” wrote ESPN senior writer Adam Schefter following the workout.
Kaepernick remains defiant and refuses to admit that he does not have the ability to be a professional football player any longer.
“I’ve been ready for three years. I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody,” Kaepernick said following his workout.
“We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people,” he added.
Kaepernick had incredible success when he entered the league, becoming a starting QB with the San Francisco 49ers during his second professional season in 2012. He took his team to the Super Bowl in his first season, and followed that season up with more success, but quickly fell off afterward.
His team had lost 16 of the 19 games that he appeared in during his final two seasons of 2015 and 2016 with the 49ers. By the time he had started his kneeling stunt, Kaepernick was already considered incredibly washed up.
Unable to make it back into the league on his own merits, Kaepernick may consider launching another lawsuit against the NFL in order to extract more undeserved revenue from the league.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
