Colin Kaepernick Still Free Agent

In case you are not an NFL fan, you might remember him as the quarterback that took a knee during the National Anthem as a statement of rejecting America’s racist ways. 

On a recent episode of “Dana,” Lawrence Jones filled in for Dana Loesch and spoke with NFL Sports Agent Eugene Lee. During the interview, Lee discussed the truth behind why Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent.

Jones laid out some of his issues with the former quarterback. Kaepernick had little to no interest in the black community when he was at the height of his popularity, but now that’s he’s having trouble being signed, he suddenly has a huge desire to help and speak out.

Not Only Due To Playing Ability

Agent Eugene Lee revealed:

“If you look at it from the outside looking in, I mean that’s what it appears like. I think the situation right now with Colin is that he’s without a job, and I saw an analysis saying that part of it is due to his playing ability, but if you look around the league right now, you see some of these free agent quarterbacks that are being signed with deals, there is absolutely no way that it relates solely to his playing ability.”

Lawrence Jones then asked if this treatment could be considered fair.

Eugene Lee responded to Lee’s question and reminded him that the NFL is made up of private organizations. Essentially, they are responsible to their customers, the fans, so they do not want additional backlash for signing Kaepernick.

He’s not only been an embarrassment to his country but also…

“An Embarrassment To Football”

According to the Bleacher Report:

“It’s more than a week into free agency and Colin Kaepernick is still unemployed. Remember, this is a quarterback who played in the Super Bowl only four years ago, yet now it appears he can’t get a look from teams.

“So I set out to discover, once and for all, what teams think of the 29-year-old former Niner. “He can still play at a high level,” one AFC general manager said. “The problem is three things are happening with him.

“First, some teams genuinely believe that he can’t play. They think he’s shot. I’d put that number around 20 percent.

“Second, some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. They think there might be protests or [President Donald] Trump will tweet about the team. I’d say that number is around 10 percent. Then there’s another 10 percent that has a mix of those feelings.

“Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did.” When I spoke to a handful of executives at the combine a few weeks ago, one even called him “an embarrassment to football.”

    In America we are free to make many choices in our lives. Not every choice will have a positive affect on our lives. Some will have a decidedly negative affect on our lives. It is up to us to think things through and make the best decisions we can. We are free to make these choice but we are not free of the consequences of those choices.

    Kaput nick, he is an embarrassment to this country and an embarrassment to football. I hope he will be a free agent indefinitely. He did not know how fortunate he was. He was adopted into a loving family, made a lot of money in sports and given a lot of opportunities and he blew it.

    Facts are facts and an embarrassment is an understatement. He doesn’t deserve the publicity that this article provides. As far as I’m concerned it should be more like Colin Kaepernick ? Who’s that I’ve never heard of him !

    Older people who can remember what Jane Fonda did are particularly likely to viscerally dislike Kaepernick, who deepened the link between them with that disgusting “rescue mission” in Somalia, which just happens to be one of the six countries that are subject to President Trump’s travel ban.

    So far as the “free speech” argument goes: As Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. pointed out in a 1919 Supreme Court decision, there is such a thing as yelling “Fire!” in a crowded theater – and that’s what Kaepernick did when he chose to blaspheme the National Anthem.

      It’s a shame, that the governing body of the NFL. Didn’t take some kind of action on this, his right to not stand is his right. But supporting an Terrorists organization Black Lives Matters that preaches harm and death to other humans is not a freedom of speech right. There’s no difference in BLM preaching to kill people and me walking up to you and telling you I’m going to kill you. The 14th amendment says “the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness

    He will probably end up on welfare or homeless.

    I would like to see all the braindead players that participated in this insult placed on waivers and lose their jobs with the NFL. I would rather see players that are patriots playing, even if they play poorly.
