Unemployed quarterback/social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick has still not found a home in the NFL this offseason.
…but Commish Roger Goodell says don’t blame us.
The free agent player was at the center of a disrespectful protest last year where he refused to stand for the national anthem due to perceived police brutality and racial inequality — multi-million dollar NFL players excluded.
A stance evident in a tweet this week from Kaepernick, where he equated police with runaway slave catchers:
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

Despite the divisive, race-driven far left ideology Kaepernick displays, there are those who feel a team should take a chance on the player — even if the decision proves to be a marketing nightmare.
But Goodell said the NFL is a “meritocracy, and you earn your opportunities and you get to keep your opportunities on the way you perform,” according to Sporting News. He added that every team in the league “want to get better.”
“And if they see an opportunity to get better as a football team, they’re going to do it,” Goodell said.
“So those are football decisions,” he continued. “They’re made all the time. I believe that if a football team feels that Colin Kaepernick — or any other player — is going to improve that team, they’re going to do it.”
And while he may truly believe this, it sounds a lot like pre-lawsuit posturing should Kaepernick remain unsigned. After all, being a radical leftist, you just know the player will take advantage of the legal system he regularly denounces to sue the league.
