    Colin Kaepernick breaks silence, writes book, wants to play in NFL


    Kaepernick talked to Jarrett Bell of USA Today about the launch of his memoir, and said that he hopes his venture into publishing doesn’t preclude him from playing again.


    My desire to play football is still there,” Kaepernick said. “I still train five days a week. I’m ready to go, I’m ready for a phone call, tryout, workout at any point in time. I’m still waiting on the owners and their partners to stop running from this situation. So I hope I get a call this offseason. I’ll be looking forward to it.”

    That cap hit is extreme.

    Enough with Kap already.

    Look, I think the whole thing way out of proportion. I think the league acted horribly, from the decision to put players on the field during the anthem made years ago right up through how they treated Kap and responded to the kneeling. I think he was blackballed and that was wrong.

    But, first, he made mistakes on his part too. His GF calling the Ravens owner a racist when he was the only one willing to give Kap a tryout was a big one.

    Second, from a purely football perspective: It's been what, 3 years since he's played? And he wasn't that great his last season. There are younger, cheaper options out there. Is he better than some of the backups that are currently on NFL rosters? Probably, but I don't know if the difference in talent level is worth the cap hit and the drama.

    There was a report about the Lions wanting to trade Stafford I put it up in this spot.
    I went back to the source and found that another story had just popped that the reports were false.
    I would have deleted the entire thread if I knew how to do that.
    Instead I put this story that I hate about screwy Kaepernick because before I could do anything Night Train had already commented on the 1st thread about Stafford.
    That's how fast stuff changes.

    SCREW KAEPERNICK Take a look at the original post of thread.

    It is all about the money. If he really cares about playing.

    Exactly. He could've played in the XFL and shown the world he was worthy of being in the NFL, but he wanted 20 million dollars. If you really loved football, and wanted to prove yourself, you wouldn't be asking for that kind of money from a league that is probably running on a 20 million dollar per team wage.

    Could have come here also. I have a feeling Kap for president in 2024 is coming.

    He must feel it's beneath him.
