Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American anthem protest has tarnished the NFL.
In light of his toxicity and declining skills, no team has signed the quarterback-turned-activist who is currently suing the NFL for collusion against him.
But Kaepernick’s latest move almost ensures he has no chance of getting back into the league.
Kaepernick seems to be confused. He wants to be an activist, a quarterback, and an NFL owner all at once.
It’s possible to advocate for certain causes while still being a professional athlete, but doing it on the job and disrespecting the country in the process isn’t the smartest angle. And how NFL ownership fits into all of that is anyone’s guess.
Nevertheless, Kaepernick traveled to NFL headquarters in New York to depose the man who could’ve been his greatest ally, Roger Goodell.
Some might find it odd for a person to travel the country with his legal team to depose the NFL commissioner, while seeking a job in the NFL.
However, this does not seem to bother Colin Kaepernick at all.
TMZ cameras caught the NFL’s most famous anthem protester as he and his high-powered lawyers entered the league offices in New York.
“I’m doing great,” Kaepernick said. the former 49er added, “I love y’all and we gonna keep going!”
According to TMZ, “Our NFL sources tell us … Colin and the team are at HQ to depose Goodell as part of Colin’s collusion case against the NFL — in which he claims league officials like Goodell conspired with team owners to blackball him because of his kneeling protest during the national anthem.
“We know Kaep’s team has already deposed Houston Texans owner Bob McNair — and there are reports Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent were grilled this past week.”
Interestingly, a member of Kaepernick’s entourage was carrying an Adidas bag. The shoe and athletic apparel giant made headlines on Tuesday, by announcing that they would sign Kaepernick to an endorsement deal if he got picked up by an NFL team.
Kaepernick’s motives are unclear, but perhaps he’s using the threat of a lawsuit to scare one owner into giving him a job.
He’d certainly be in line for a big payday with Adidas should that happen.
More from Breitbart:
Sportswear giant Adidas has promised to sign Colin Kaepernick to an endorsement deal, but only if an NFL team signs him first, according to reports.
Speaking to the Arizona Republic, Adidas North American President Mark King insisted, “If he signs on a team, we would definitely want to sign him.”
Apparently, the anti-American protests do not bother Adidas.
“We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place,” King told the Republic. “If they’re an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there’s controversy at that moment, we’re really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today.
“We’re not in the business of activism, we’re in the business of sport,” King added. “But allowing our athletes to tell their story, it’s really important to us.”
Kaepernick needs to figure out what he wants, because his current strategy of non-commitment is undermining all of his endeavors, except activism.
Kaepernick has essentially boxed himself in as a far-left activist. His supporters don’t really want him back in the NFL and sitting on a bench behind a better quarterback. They want him to be a martyr so they can push their own political agenda.
