This is not the hate article you think this is going to be, mainly because I do like Colin Kaepernick and his play ON the field. I have been a 49ers fan my whole life and I will not sit here and act like he didn’t lead us to the Super Bowl after Alex Smith got injured. He was good for those couple of years, but I will also not sit here and talk about how he should be on an NFL roster today.
Colin Kaepernick has been out of the league for 7 years now. SEVEN! Barack Obama was still in office when Colin was suiting up for the 49ers. The guy is 35 years old and thinks he could be QB1 for a playoff-contending roster.
I think this whole “Colin Kaepernick reached out to the Jets” conversation is hilarious. I reached out to Livvy Dunne once and asked if she wanted to go on a date. I got the same answer as Colin, none.
While I appreciate his thoughtfulness in trying to go out and get a job for himself, I think he needs to realize that the door has maybe shut on his playing career.
