Colin Kaepernick may have agreed to a settlement with the NFL in his collusion case, but he has not given up on wanting to continue his career in the National Football League.
On Tuesday, it was announced that the Oakland Raiders were signing guard Richie Incognito, the same guy who was part of a bullying scandal with the Dolphins in 2013, arrested just last season for threatening to shoot the employees at a funeral home, and hasn’t played since 2017.
After that announcement, Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter and threw a massive shot at the league for signing players with sketchy backgrounds such as Nick Bosa and Richie Incognito when he retweeted a Twitter account called L E F T, PhD that criticized the hypocrisy of teams signing players like this.
“The ‘Progressive’ Bay Area NFL teams have opened their arms to MAGA maggot Nick Bosa and Richie ‘I openly call teammates N—er’ Incognito. Meanwhile Kaepernick’s Blackballing from the NFL (during the PRIME of his) was for the ‘crime’ of wanting Black folks to stay alive,” the tweet read.
Bosa was selected #2 overall in the NFL Draft, which was after he had some terrible Tweets over the years, some of which were aimed at Kaepernick, calling him a “clown.”
Kaepernick hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season, where he became a controversial figure because he kneeled during the playing of the National Anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality. He is widely believed to be blackballed as a result.
