Nobody Wants Kaepernick On Their Team

Everyone following the NFL in the U.S. are well aware about Colin Kaepernick. He did not really have a good season playing quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, all things considered. He is also disrespectful to flag and country.

After more than a week of free agency, in a league that struggles to find enough competent quarterbacks for each team, it not surprising that Kaepernick remains unsigned with no buzz about where he might go next.

Nobody wants to touch him with a 10-foot pole because of his national anthem protest last season. Movie director Spike Lee made that connection in an Instagram post after having brunch with Kaepernick in New York, saying it "Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens."

Even though Kaepernick has said he won’t protest during the anthem anymore, the NFL is a conservative league and it's clear his protest didn't go over well with everyone, particularly among owners. Bleacher Report quoted an unnamed general manager who estimated that 70 percent of league executives "genuinely hate" Kaepernick after his protest.

There are other football-related issues that have to be discussed when evaluating him, such as his erratic play from the pocket and inconsistent accuracy. All of this will ensure that he won't be signed at all and dropped like a hot potato.
