Jason Whitlock Says The NFL Should NOT Investigate Why ‘Black Tim Tebow’ Can’t Land a Job (VIDEO)
Over the weekend, Jarrett Bell of USA Today wrote a compelling piece about worse QB’s in the league constantly securing jobs while Colin Kaepernick is still waiting on the sidelines.
He even argued that Roger Goodell needs to have another investigation headed by Ted Wells as to why teams are steering clear of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.
“Whatever happened to the concept of collecting as much good talent as possible – especially at the premium quarterback position – and raising the bar with good competition?
Does not apply with Kaepernick.
Which reminds me: Where’s the NFL players union amid all this?
For two years, NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith and crew were all-in on fighting the NFL on behalf of Tom Brady in the Deflategate saga, willing to take it all the way to the Supreme Court. I’m not saying the NFLPA should not have fought with Brady, but Kaepernick has been a dues-paying member, too. While it can be sticky for the union to fight for the job prospects of individual players on the free agent market, Smith and Co. have to see this as a special case.
The longer Kaepernick remains out of work, the more the union needs to dig in their heels and demonstrate that it won’t give the NFL a pass on this.”
On Monday’s edition of ‘Speak For Yourself’ on FS1, Jason Whitlock and his panel agreed that no investigation needs to happen because this would open a Pandora’s box of other issues that player’s would want investigated.
He also referred to Colin Kaepernick as the ‘Black Tim Tebow’.
