It’s been several years since Colin Kaepernick last saw an NFL field as many truly believe it had everything to do with his decision to kneel during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality.
According to ProFootballTalk, it has been “months” since any NFL team expressed interest in the former 49ers starter, even going as far to state there was “fake” interest expressed in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the protests that followed.
“In the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder, a sense emerged that Colin Kaepernick was right all along, and that the process of moving forward would necessarily entail putting Kaepernick back in the NFL. The momentum was palpable, at least for a little while.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there was some “fake” interest expressed immediately after Floyd’s death, seemingly out of guilt. There has been zero interest expressed as to Kaepernick “in months.”
In 2016, Kaepernick went 1-10 as a starter while completing 59.2-percent of his passes for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns with four interceptions. But that team was completely terrible from top to the bottom.
His protest reportedly became too much for teams to even take a look at him, and here he sits out of the league four years later and possibly forever.
