Raiders Reap Praise For Providing Workout Opportunity For Kaepernick


Mike Florio of NBC Pro Football Talk is praising Las Vegas Raiders and giving Colin Kaepernick, a SJW, a workout Wednesday. It’s not clear if the ex-49ers quarterback showed off his kneeling knee or not, but he’s been an unwanted troublemaker for the NFL since last playing in the turbulent season of 2016. 


“Kudos to the Raiders,” Florio commented. “To (Raiders owner Mark) Davis, G.M. Dave Ziegler, Josh McDaniels. Even if they don’t sign him, they’ve busted the seal on a bottle that perhaps was never going to be opened again.” 


Kaepernick’s media lapdogs have been crying for his return ever since he walked away from San Francisco more than five years ago. He’s been viewed as too much social justice trouble for the possibility that he might be able to help a team. 


Florio shared his dreams of Kaepernick being signed by the Raiders, or other teams.: 



“He’s most likely not going to supplant (starting quarterback Derek) Carr, who just received a new contract with the Raiders. But if, after the workout, the sky doesn’t fall and the NFL world keeps spinning, maybe another team will be willing to give him a workout. Another. And maybe he’ll get a roster spot. And maybe he’ll prove to be the best option for a team like, say, the Seahawks or the Panthers or someone else who doesn’t currently have a high-end quarterback.” 



During the entire five years that Kaepernick has been demonizing America and police officers, Davis was telling his coaches and general managers that “if they want to hire Colin Kaepernick, they have my blessing.” 


The New York Daily News’s Pat Leonard wrote that Kaepernick protested racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling on the sideline during the national anthem throughout 2016. He hasn’t played for an NFL team since, while scores of less talented backup QBs have been cycled through rosters. 


Note Leonard’s lack of objectivity. He didn’t say Kaepernick alleged there was racial injustice and police brutality across the nation, but treated it as fact. 




Roger Goodell must be pleased that Kaepernick is returning to his social justice venture. In 2020, he said the NFL was “wrong” for not listening to player protests earlier. He welcomed and supported the return of Kaepernick. 


The longtime NFL pariah Kaepernick has been strengthening his arm in workouts over the years, but he hasn’t faced an NFL defense for a long time. He has also been trashing his homeland and the public safety officers he knows from Twitter. The author also wrote a collection of essays calling to abolish police. And Kaepernick and former teammate/anthem kneeler Eric Reid both sued the league he’s been slamming. Both were settled by the NFL for just a few millions. 


Kaepernick could return to the NFL at any point in the future. His social justice protests will undoubtedly cause protests again against the league and him. His vile slogan could be repeated at the NFL’s press conference (as shown in the above photo). That would make it v2.0 in the 2016 mess. 


Last month, Kaepernick said, “Let me come in and compete. Let me come in, compete, show you what I can do.” If that’s all he did was compete, he could have returned sooner. It’s the circus act that comes with the competition that turns people off. Caveat emptor, Raiders!
