Colin Kaepernick’s Lawyer Thinks He’ll Be on NFL Roster Within Ten Days


Colin Kaepernick has so tightly tied his name to the national anthem and flag protests in professional sports that’s it’s hard to think of him as just a football player The former San Francisco 49ers player has been out of a job since the 2016 season, but now his lawyer is hinting that this could soon change

On Tuesday, attorney Mark Geragos made a bold prediction on the Adam Carolla Show: Kaepernick would be back on an NFL team in just over a week “I think within the next 10 days somebody will sign him I think somebody’s gonna sign him I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more,” Geragos declared It was unclear if the lawyer was sharing inside knowledge, or was making a wild claim in a last-ditch effort to keep his client relevant

Kaepernick himself opted out of his 49ers contract at the end of 2016, apparently believing that he would be quickly picked up by another team That didn’t happen Continuing his narrative of unfairness and oppression, the mediocre quarterback has repeatedly blamed racism for his inability to be re-signed He is currently involved in a lawsuit against the National Football League, which basically claims that teams are conspiring against him Nothing says “please hire me” like quitting, calling every potential employer a racist, and threatening them with lawsuits

Sounds like a winning plan “This is an unprecedented situation, with an individual NFL player bringing this sort of case against the league,” explained CBS Sports That network further explained that in order for Kaepernick’s grievance to be successful, he would “have to convince System Arbitrator Stephen Burbank that at least two teams, or a team and the league office, conspired to deny Kaepernick an opportunity to work-out for or gain employment from an NFL club” It will be extremely interesting to see how this saga unfolds If Colin Kaepernick is indeed picked up by a new team, will he continue to lead protests and fail to stand for the national anthem? If he does, the NFL risks alienating even more fans who are largely unimpressed by the displays and tired of self-centered antics on the field

On the other hand, if Kaepernick stands for the anthem, he will appear to have “sold out” in order to personally benefit from a new contract Ironically, that move could cause his remaining defenders — mostly within the “social justice crowd” — to turn their backs on the former player Here’s an idea: How about professional athletes play football, not insult their teams and fans, and show respect for the American flag? In reality, Colin Kaepernick is lucky and blessed, not oppressed He has made literally millions of dollars playing a game in a country that rewards abilities and hard work America is the place where people of any skin color are able to thrive

Kaepernick and others like him seem to harbor deeply misplaced resentment instead of showing gratitude over being born in the most successful and liberty-loving country on earth
