Another retired Black NFL player is telling Kaepernick to be ‘low-key’ about his activism

Colin Kaepernick did nothing wrong. I’ll repeat that as many times as I have to until people get it. Despite that fact, the former [and hopefully soon-to-be current] NFL player is being crucified after his protests of the National Anthem last season.

NFL teams are avoiding him as if he has something contagious and are electing to bring on players who are clearly less talented to fill spots he’s more than qualified for. So what’s he got to do to get onto a roster? Well, former NFL player and fellow black quarterback Kordell Stewart thinks he has the answer: Kaep should just be quiet. 

Michael Vick thinks Colin Kaepernick should cut his hair to be more “presentable”

Sadly, Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t been added to a roster in the NFL despite there being at least a dozen quarterbacks he’s better than who already have. Many fans and onlookers, myself included, suspect it’s because NFL owners have collectively decided to blacklist him due to his protest of the National Anthem to highlight social injustice. So what’s next? Well, former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has a controversial suggestion for Kaep – cut his hair. 

Another Patriot’s Player Won’t Visit White House With Team

As expected, Martellus Bennett was the first domino to fall in what could be an ongoing series during the Trump administration.

After winning the Super Bowl this past Sunday, Bennett told the press he wouldn’t join his teammates on the standard visit to the White House to meet and pose with the president. Defensive back Devin McCourty told TIME Magazine that he also wouldn’t be in attendance. 

NFL Players Meet With Congress To Discuss Police Brutality

Corey Jones was shot dead by a plain clothes police officer who didn’t identify himself or show a badge 13 months ago. That same officer was charged with manslaughter and attempted murder eight months later, according to ESPN. Since then, there are no updates on the case because it hasn’t gone to trial and no date is in sight.

Jones’ cousin, Anquan Boldin, who plays wide receiver for the Detroit Lions, is now working to mend the broken relationship between members of the black community and police officers. 

Seattle Seahawks “Demonstration” Fails To Pick A Side

Leading up to the opening kickoff of the new NFL season, which fell on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, members of the Seattle Seahawks started dropping hints that the team would have some sort of demonstration for the national anthem. Many members of the media assumed that they’d join in with the many others who are supporting Colin Kaepernick’s protest against social injustice and police brutality. It’s safe to say that was a premature assumption.
