Colin Kaepernick continues to be a blight on the NFL.
His anti-American anthem protest is still harming the league’s brand.
But one NFL Hall of Famer called out the huge mistake Colin Kaepernick made.
Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp is not one to bite his tongue.
And in a sweeping interview with DJ Vlad, whose real name is Vladimir Lyubovny, Sapp revealed that he heard former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a disastrous workout with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Sapp told DJ Vlad, “I heard it was a disaster. I heard it was one of the worst workouts ever. I’m wondering how the hell this happened and the tape didn’t get out…”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Kaepernick had a bad workout.
He has not played football in five years, and the last time he was in the NFL, he lost ten of his last 11 starts.
Kaepernick’s career was already on the decline, so a five-year hiatus was not going to improve his skill.
Plus, Kaepernick never improved on his deficiencies, namely throwing with touch and getting the ball out quick.
At the end of the clip, DJ Vlad mentioned that NFL cornerback Josh Norman said it doesn’t make sense to sue an employer, then try to work for them again.
Norman is exactly correct.
But it goes even further than that.
In Kaepernick’s garbage Netflix miniseries, he likened the NFL to a slave auction.
It’s absurd for him to sue the league, compare it to a plantation, then try to work for the league again.
Kaepernick seems completely confused about what he wants.
He said during a recent interview, “Five years of training behind the scenes…You don’t do that if you don’t have a passion, and you don’t believe you’re gonna find a way on that field…I know I have to find my way back in. So yeah. If I have to come in as a backup, that’s fine…But that’s not where I’m staying. And when I prove that I’m a starter, I want to be able to step on the field as such. I just need that opportunity to walk through the door.”
Kaepernick is delusional if he believes he can be a starter after not playing competitive football for five years.
That doesn’t even get into how much of a nuisance and a distraction he would likely be.
Coincidentally, Norman called out Kaepernick years ago for not being receptive to negotiation with owners after his protest.
Norman said, “When he took a knee, everybody was in shock and everything, but when the bullets start flying, I was trying to figure out where he was at. He was ducking…When you’re in the line of fire and the guys that are over here are trying to have a conversation to move stuff forward, he didn’t want to have that conversation.”
Kaepernick has become a left-wing brand at this point.
He’s selling radicalism, and getting kudos for it from people who have disdain for America.
The NFL is not going to do him any special favors.
