As NFL’s newest season is about to kick off, quarterback Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t managed to find a team willing to sign him, and it seems that that’s not going to change anytime soon.
The only people who still believe this is happening are Colin Kaepernick’s fans.
Recently, ESPN carried out a survey asking NFL which quarterbacks will be of use in the league the most. Surprisingly, more than six teams responded that Kaepernick would contribute a lot.
However, due to his sneaky intentions and tenacious character, no club is ready to sign him.
“It is really not about his ability,” a NFL executive said.
“It’s about the risk of what happens to the team concept when you sign a guy — a quarterback — who has put his personal agenda ahead of what we are all charged to do, which is put the team first. As a team builder, I cannot risk that happening again, especially for a borderline starter who needs the entire offense catered to his style.”
In case Kaepernick did find his team, he wouldn’t be able to lead them as he should, due to his weak personality and already low values.
An athlete who seems more interested in sending Americans a message than nurturing his career, is not a desirable candidate for the league.
“Tom Brady or Philip Rivers would never consider making a stand on something like that, and it’s just because it’s not the place. I don’t disparage what he did. I understand and I’m all for people standing up for a cause, just not while they’re at work,” the executive said.
“As far as his prospects as a backup, I don’t think he is being blackballed in terms of rich white owners saying, ‘We are not hiring this guy,’” a defensive coordinator also told ESPN.
“I think coaches are like, ‘Look, if this kid is not starting for us, why are you bringing in distractions not for a starter? We have a pretty good sort of locker room and mesh here. What is the risk-reward?’ I don’t think anyone is to the point of making him the starter, and that is the bubble he is getting caught in.”
Oh, the ugly truth.
Kaepernick has shown lack of respect towards this country, its values and mostly, its citizens. It seems he’s holding a grudge for no good reason, and is, as a result, paying the price.
It may appear as a lot of work to sign Kaepernick, and trust him not to make a fool of himself all over again. Most of all, many NFL teams are not ready to see their team become this huge mockery with Colin’s arrival.
