Unfortunately for Colin Kaepernick, his life as a free agent might be a little on the long side. Even though many teams are in need of a good quarterback, Kaepernick has drawn little interest as of late.
According to one report, the reasons could be that over two thirds of the NFL team execs “genuinely hate” him.
An anonymous AFC general manager said that Kaepernick has alienated many in the NFL front offices by protesting too much during last season. This GM says that about 70 percent of the teams “genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment.”
The other teams aren’t interested either. Some say he just isn’t good enough anymore and others worry about backlash from fans or even Donald Trump himself.
“I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did,” the GM went on.
