Colin Kaepernick, the marginal backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49er’s, spent much of last season in the spotlight for his asinine view of the men and women of America’s police force.
It was all Kaepernick to do to stay in the headlines, even after garnering some starts at the beginning of the season, as his numbers slipped far below those deemed acceptable for elite QB’s in the NFL. Now, Kaepernick is facing some off-season justice, according to anonymous sources.
“After beginning the season as a starter, then sapping up payroll while not being able to perform at his best due to multiple injuries, Kaepernick decided to use all of his down time on the bench for disrespectful sideline antics. The franchise and his team seem to be sick of what he’s done to their image and the fact that he’s not really an asset to offset it. Instead of simply doing his highly paid job of playing a game, he went for the support of anti-police protesters thinking that was more important. His constant rhetoric in standing with the Black Lives Matter movement and against the police who he relies on for protection could cost him, and these race-baiter haters won’t be there to save him.
“Rumors began swirling that this once star of the show would soon be let go, and now he’s hoping for a hail mary salvage what he has left with the 49ers, but the damage has already been done. A person who spoke on condition of anonymity, since they aren’t authorized to speak about deals within the NFL, told USA Today that a contract renegotiation is happening, which at best could mean he keeps his job for less favorable financial arrangements than before, or at worst, he’ll be cut from the team. Yahoo Sports feels that the latter is more likely to happen at the end of this all, which is exactly what Kaepernick deserves.”
Kaepernick’s choices during the season made for an emboldened terror network to spring up within the Black Lives Matter movement, something that caused many police to boycott working games in which Kaepernick was playing.
