    It's not just the t shirt.. when he had a chance to walk it back with Mando, he doubled down citing that Castro increased the literacy rate (at least for survivors of the brutality he wreaked on the friends and relatives of a large number of South Florida residents). And then there's the piggy socks and his GF going Miko-style calling the Ravens owner a plantation owner and Ray Lewis an Uncle Tom. Why would any team want to deal with any of this for even a decent QB, let alone one who lost his job to Blaine Gabbert and had to have the playbook dumbed down for him?

    I was wondering when the monthly Kapernick thread would appear.

    We'd lose the constant questioning of why isn't he playing, could he help the Dolphins and Florio's obsession on PFT. No way, I would miss those 3 things way to much to sign him here.

    I wouldn't go that far. I personally think he's being manipulated by his gf. She's a pig. I think he knew he was figured out and needed a new, fairly lucrative career. And he got it. Smart enough to see the writing on the wall and got proactive.

    Gotta figure out how to get him from Gruden. He signed with the Raiders.

    Wholeheartedly agree with you here. Be on the right side instead of falling in line.

    The owner who said he didn't have a problem with players taking a knee in the midst of the #TakeAKnee movement is still going to get paid the same amount as the owner who threatened to cut any player who took a knee...

    Owners could give a rat's a** about the locals. If you don't believe me, ask the owners of the Browns what was more important when they moved. Ask Al Davis the same question, while you're at it ask his son why Las Vegas is a better destination than Oakland in yterms of a fanbase.

    Or Blake Bortles...can't forget how the Redskins took Josh Johnson of the cash register at Wal Mart and had him start.

    A lot of the responses here are against this because they think he'll probably suck, which he very well might...but unlike the Petermans and Bortles, there's also a chance he might not. So if we're tossing the season away, let's at least make it interesting...

    I guess maybe you liked the Johnathan Martin distraction a few years back?

    Kap would be a huge distraction. Kap = poison. Kap = never playing a down again for an NFL team........Ever.

    Doing what's right? How is hiring a player that is not very good "doing what's right" for this team? I wish people would stop clamoring for this guy just due to the political statement it would make. I'd like to start winning some games and make history ON the field, not off it.

    Every discussion about this guy is about 99% political, including most of the reasons why people want to or don't want to sign him.

    Says a lot.


    I'm trying hard not to be political here, but you raise an excellent point about his girlfriend's comments. He was indeed apparently going to be signed by the Ravens when his girlfriend came out and straight up insulted the team ownership as well as the best player in franchise history. It really shouldn't surprise anyone that nobody wants to even sniff at the guy after that happened.
