Jermichael Finley Says Black Athletes Are ‘Roll Models’ & Should Shut Up About Politics & Play
Jermichael Finley Says Lynch, Bennett & Kaepernick’s Protest is ‘Phony Marketing Tool’ (VIDEO)
I’m not sure what got into Jermichael Finley, but he seems really upset.
The former Green Bay Packers tight end went on a tirade on Monday when he suggested Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett don’t actually care about social injustice. Rather, he believes their National Anthem protests are publicity stunts.
Finley, who’s career was cut way short due to injury, spoke to TMZ on Monday and blasted the current NFL stars for using real issues for personal gain.
“It’s more of marketing, it’s not really in their heart that they really want to do that. But once again, I think it’s a selfish reason I really do.”
He even took it a step further and said Colin Kaepernick needs to do something with his hair, just as Michael Vick said a few weeks ago.
