Chris Broussard: “Roger Goodell and NFL, your nice apology was saying everything the players wanted you to say almost verbatim. You apologized for squelching the peaceful protest of last year, and you even have defied President Donald Trump, which you didn’t do in the last few years. But if you REALLY want to put some teeth behind your statement, Colin Kaepernick should be offered a job.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Chris Broussard explain why he believes it is paramount for the NFL to find Colin Kaepernick a roster spot in the league next season, and says it will be the only way the league can truly show its players that they’re taking their desires for social change seriously in the wake of the George Floyd fallout.
Kaepernick is 32 years old, turning 33 in November, and hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since 2016.
During his final season in the league, went 1-10 as a starter with a 90.7 passer rating, and averaged 186.8 passing yards in 12 games. At one point in Kap's career, he was considered a rising star in the league, and led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013 when Kaepernick was 25.
Check out the audio above as Broussard details why Kaepernick’s presence as an active player would effectively be a ‘handout’, but one such handout that is absolutely warranted.
