Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa, strongly to the characterization.
“The @NFL @nflcommish @NFLPA lying on their website claiming @Kaepernick7 ‘retired,’” she said on Twitter. “Colin did NOT retire. You cowards blackballed him [because] he peacefully protested against police brutality. He’s a Super Bowl QB [and] should be playing [because] his stats show that.”
Social media also went off:
It was just last November when the league organized a workout for Kaepernick to be seen by several teams, but things changed drastically when he suddenly moved the venue to a local high school so the workout could be recorded.
Only a few teams showed up, but he still received no interest or offers to tryout.
