ESPN Senior Writer, author, and avid Colin Kaepernick supporter Howard Bryant recently sat down with Cari Champion for an interview about the blackballed quarterback on ESPN. 

Howard revealed he spoke to Kaepernick for over three hours off the record and stated that there wasn’t anything about Kaepernick that indicated he “wasn’t committed to playing football” this year.

Bryant then put every single black athlete under contract on notice, stating they are doing a disservice to their people and being way too passive while NFL owners around the league are purposely blackballing a member of the NFL Players Association.  

“I think that every African-American in the sport should be ashamed of themselves,” Bryant told Champion.

He also said that, “the white players in the NFL should be ashamed of themselves….If you’re a union… You have to send some type of message that this isn’t acceptable.”


“The players that have the security need to lead, if you are a union… This is not a political issue to me, it’s a labor issue. have to stick together on all of these issues… The game is owners vs players,” Bryant continued. “We have not had any football coaches, GM’s or owners say we don’t think Colin Kaepernick is good enough to play in our league. So why are we making excuses about him?… Players need to stand up because if you fight this battle, you can win other battles.”

Bryant continued to rant on Twitter:
