Last year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines when he repeatedly refused to stand for the national anthem before his football games, saying that he was doing this because the U.S. is a “racist” country.
Now, one year later, Kaepernick has found himself a free agent after being dropped by the 49ers. Unfortunately for him, insiders are saying that his anti-American, race-baiting antics have made it unlikely that any other team will sign him.
The Blaze reported that NFL Sports Agent Eugene Lee said this week that Kaepernick is not a free agent because of his playing ability, but rather because of his attitude and his distracting protests. When asked if it was fair for teams not to hire Kaepernick due to his protests, Lee pointed out that teams are private organizations and are responsive to their customers and any potential backlash they might face for signing Kaepernick.
“If you look at it from the outside looking in, I mean that’s what it appears like,” Lee admitted. “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.”
Lee also said he has some issues with Kaepernick personally, as he feels the quarterback had no interest in helping the black community when he was at the height of his popularity. However, now that he’s having trouble finding a new job, he has a new-found desire to help.
