Lost in all the politically-motivated hype of Colin Kaepernick is that at the time he left the NFL — of his own choosing, having opted out of his contract to become a free agent — he was a mediocre quarterback at best.
His performance was in decline and the San Francisco 49ers were quickly losing trust in his ability, all of which preceded his sudden stance against the national anthem in protest of oppression. Yet some 6 1/2 years since his last game played, Kaepernick was the recipient of major props in a Nike ad featuring a number of NFL stars.
At the ripe age of 35 and having not played a competitive game since 2017, New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne reassured all in the ad that Kaepernick has “another good six years left.”
Nike signed the radical left former player to a deal worth millions of dollars in 2018, and Kaepernick shared the ad online, tweeting: “We Stay Sharp.”

Kaepernick is playing catch with a number of current NFL players, including Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ceedee Lamb, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry and New Orleans Saints wide receiver Chris Olave and Bourne.
“The arm is still intact. Strong arm, deep ball is very nice, and he’s still Kap, he’s still got it to him,” Lamb says in the spot.
There were no white players in the ad.
In addition to Nike, Kaepernick also cashed in with the NFL in 2019 when the woke league agreed to a settlement over his allegations that league teams colluded to deny him a contract after his controversial protests.
Kaepernick’s return to the NFL would be the ultimate victory for his radical politics and he recently told Sports Illustrated he’s still waiting to get a phone call from a team, claiming he trains 5-6 days a week — never mind that he compared the NFL’s draft process to a slave auction in his 2019 Netflix special.
The former player also acknowledged recently that he was working with self-avowed Marxists to edit a new book because black liberation “isn’t possible under capitalism.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on Twitter:
Perhaps if you didn’t compare athletes making billions to slaves that were beat into submission and you showed a little respect for your white parents that raised you, you’d be not only a better human but a better player. Try a little humility

Dream on, bench warmer. It’s one thing to throw when nobody’s chasing you, or when no defense is confusing you (which only happened on every play).
You must be starved for attention.
Idea: Why not go shopping with Meghan Markle? Just a thought.

He sucked the last season he started, why would anyone want him as anything more than a backup (if not third stringer)
