Clay Travis: Colin Kaepernick Never Wanted to Come Back to the NFL

Clay Travis: Colin Kaepernick Never Wanted to Come Back to the NFL
Clay Travis: “Colin Kaepernick 100% doesn’t want to be employed. First of all he’s not going to make much money. We know that Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, and Andy Dalton are all more accomplished backups than Colin Kaepernick and none of them got big money… The market for backup quarterbacks in the NFL who are far more accomplished than Colin Kaepernick is at most a couple million dollars a year. He’s making more than that from Disney and ESPN to make a documentary which will be a totally fraudulent documentary that’s designed to make him look like a hero… He makes more money as a person who claims that America is an awful place than he does as an actual athlete. Colin Kaepernick to my mind is the first athlete in the history of America to make infinitely more money NOT playing sports than he does playing sports. It used to be that a Nike shoe deal was a hallmark of excellence, now it’s just being able to create outrage. It certainly is tremendous irony when you get filthy rich in America by arguing that America is an awful place. I’m not sure there is a place anywhere else in the world where that is possible.” (Full Audio Above)

Listen to Clay Travis explain why he doesn’t believe Colin Kaepernick ever wanted to return to the NFL, despite Kaepernick at one time attempting a publicly touted comeback campaign to the league, and the NFL appearing to push and 'encourage' for Kaepernick to be signed in the weeks following the killing of Georgie Floyd.

Check out the video above as Clay details why he thinks Kaepernick is a ‘fraudulent hero’ who will earn a ton more money and acclaim running with a sham backstory of being a martyr who was ‘blackballed’ from the league, than as a NFL backup.
