Anti-American former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in the spotlight.
Kaepernick’s anti-military and anti-flag protests kicked off a wave of pro athletes expressing their hatred for America by kneeling during the national anthem.
But ahead of the upcoming NFL season, Colin Kaepernick just made this surprising confession.
Kaepernick has been out of football since the San Francisco 49ers released him after the end of the 2016 NFL season.
NFL teams refused to sign Kaepernick because his poor play meant he would only be a backup quarterback, but Kaepernick wanted to be paid like a starter.
A much forgotten part of this story is that Kaepernick’s play deteriorated so badly that the 49ers benched him as their starting quarterback before Kaeperniock began his national anthem protests.
Kaepernick’s declining play, money demands, and the associated controversy all kept adding up to end Kaepernick’s NFL career.
But with the start of preseason games in the NFL Kaepernick released a video stating that he is ready, willing and able to resume his NFL career.
In a new video, former NFL quarterback and national anthem protester Colin Kaepernick insists that he is “still ready” to play pro football, USA Today reports.
On Wednesday, Kaerpernick posted a video to his Twitter account that starts with a countdown clock noting that he has been out of work for 889 days. It goes on to feature his daily exercise routine. Kaepernick is seen doing pushups, arm lifts, weights, and using various exercise machines.
In a caption to the video he exclaims: “5am. 5 days a week. For 3 years. Still Ready.”
This is Kaepernick’s first public comment about his employment situation since he settled a collusion charge with the NFL in February.
For the last two seasons, every time some NFL team loses their starting quarterback to injury, liberal sports journalists clamor for them to sign Kaepernick.
But Kaepernick hasn’t played a down of football in years.
What Kaepernick wants is to claim he is ready to play so his allies in the media can slam the NFL for blacklisting him due to his politics when Kaepernick invariably goes another season without suiting up.
