Colin Kaepernick Anthem Protest Causing NFL Free Agent Backlash has learned that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has received little attention on the free-agent market.

Why is Kaep facing NFL backlash?

Despite Kaepernick stating that he would NOT kneel during the anthem next season, NFL owners and general managers are reportedly concerned. They are unsure Kaepernick isn’t going to do something else after his 2016 polarizing protests of the national anthem.

Over the weekend, director Spike Lee CALLED OUT THE NFL writing on Instagram:

“Just Had Brunch With My Brother Colin @Kaepernick7 . How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF. Smells MAD Fishy To Me,Stinks To The High Heavens. The New York J-E-T-S Need A Quarterback. Who Is The J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In. The Question Remains What Owner And GM Is Going To Step Up And Sign Colin So Their Team Has A Better Chance To WIN? What Crime Has Colin Committed? Look At The QB’s Of All 32 Teams. This Is Some Straight Up Shenanigans,Subterfuge, Skullduggery And BS. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. By Any Means Necessary. And Dat’s Da NoFunLeague Truth,Ruth.”

Meanwhile, Shannon Sharpe, Cris Carter and Skip Bayless reacted to Kaepernick’s situation on Monday’s episode of Undisputed.

They said that they feel NFL teams lack of interest in Kaepernick “stinks to the high heavens,” ripping the “No Fun League.” In addition, Sharpe he believes “NFL owners are refusing to sign Kaepernick to send a message to other players.”

There’s another [group] of general managers that say ‘he can’t play.’ They are not only asking questions why Colin is out of work, they are asking the obvious while calling out the NFL.


They question:

How does Mike Glennon get $15 million with his resume? How does Brian Hoyer get signed one day into free agency with his resume? Then, Chase Daniel is getting paid the highest-paid backup salary of $7 million last year. They made him the highest-paid backup in NFL history.

Another alleged reason Colin is having a hard time as a free agent is said to be because of out amateur president Donald Trump. Speaking at a rally in Kentucky, Donald Trump mentioned “the San Francisco quarterback.”

Trump BLASTED Kaepernick:

“There was an article today, that was reported, that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. I just saw that. I said if I remember that I’m going to report it to the people of Kentucky. Because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag.”

Why is our ‘so-called’ president talking football when he NEEDS to be worried about our country. What a dumb ass!
