What happened to Colin Kaepernick in Miami may have put the final nail in the coffin of his NFL career.
Kaepernick has been going from humiliation to humiliation after taking a knee during the National Anthem when he was still starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.
Struggling to find a new team after the 49ers let him go, Kaepernick was hopeful that the Baltimore Ravens would be his safety net.
But when the Ravens front office started making noise about hiring Kaepernick, a furious backlash from outraged fans apparently nixed the deal.
Kaepernick’s anti-America activism is toxic in this all-American sport.
Still, Kaepernick kept trying, and probably thought he’d caught a break when Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending knee injury.
The Dolphins were DESPERATE to fill the critical position before the start of the regular season. And Kaepernick, a quarterback with Super Bowl experience, was desperate to find a job. Any job.
Seems like a no-brainer.
Except for that little problem of Kaepernick’s attitude.
The Dolphins didn’t even offer the job to Kaepernick, and instead signed 34-year-old retired former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to a $10 million 1-year deal.
Across the board, commentators seem to agree that at this point in their respective careers, Kaepernick is the better quarterback. He’s younger, faster, more mobile, and has Super Bowl experience.
And still, even a team so desperate that it would sign a quarterback out of retirement won’t touch him.
