“The vast majority of the cities in America would not want Colin Kaepernick to be protesting on their field, in their state, in their city.”
With Colin Kaepernick reportedly opting out of his current deal with the 49ers, Clay Travis has reservations about the potential landing spots for the controversial quarterback, saying a historically conservative NFL fan base would not put up with arguably one of the biggest villains in NFL history.
“San Francisco is a very liberal city, it’s the kind of place where you’re going to be able to get away with something like that,” Travis said of the 49ers fans who generally accepted Kaepernick's National Anthem protests last season. “You walk into an NFL football stadium, and on average NFL football stadiums voted for Donald Trump.”
Coming off a 2016 season where he had the 23rd ranked QBR in the league, Travis doesn’t think fans would be quick to forgive a player that is a shell of the guy who was just a couple yards from winning the Super Bowl four years ago.
“How many teams would actually have the fan base to be willing to take the risk on Kaepernick, given we’re not talking about a guy who plays like Aaron Rodgers?”
