Colin Kaepernick's Lack of Talent is Biggest Reason Why He's Not in the NFL

Colin Kaepernick Simply Isn't Good Enough to Be an NFL Starting Quarterback
Colin Cowherd: “Colin Kaepernick has been inactive for 4 years. Michael Vick was inactive for two, who’s way better than Kaepernick, and was younger, and he came back and couldn’t beat out Kevin Kolb. It’s HARD. Do we understand how good this league is? A’ celebrity backup’ is not what a lot of these good teams are looking for who just want to focus on a Super Bowl… If you have been gone for four years and you were kind of average, and you’ll be 33, I’m not sure you can make a backup. Andy Dalton was a Pro Bowler and still young, and is a backup. Jameis Winston had 30 touchdown passes and he’s third string. Cam Newton can’t even get a job. This is the golden age of quarterback and the quality of QB play the last 3 or 4 years has exploded. Is Kaepernick willing to be a backup? Kaepernick back in the league would be’ interesting’, but my question is football. Four years inactive? Average when he left? Will be 33? Are we sure he’s an NFL player anymore?” (Full Audio Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks it’s unlikely that Colin Kaepernick ever returns to the NFL again if teams are simply scouting Kaepernick for ‘football’ reasons, and not because of his symbolism to the fight for racial equality.

Kaepernick’s name has once again come to the forefront in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in police custody, and many current NFL players have lobbied for teams to sign the 32-year-old as a way to quell lasting hostilities regarding National Anthem protests and the league’s disapproval with it.

Check out the audio above as Colin explains why we’re now living in the ‘Golden Age’ of quarterback play at the college and NFL level, and details why he thinks Kaepernick just simply isn’t good enough anymore to warrant a spot on an NFL team from an X’s and O’s standpoint.
