Colin Kaepernick made one stunning announcement about his football comeback
Colin Kaepernick has been out of the NFL for two years.
Since then, the question of if he will return to the league hovers over the game like a toxic cloud.
But now everyone will have their answer as Kaepernick made one stunning announcement about his future.
The brand new Alliance of American Football league kicked off its season last Saturday.
And they were looking to make a splash.
They tried to pull off the biggest coup they could by offering Kaepernick a chance to play.
But Kaepernick turned them down by demanding an insane 20 million dollar contract.
CBS Sports reports:
Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t gotten an offer to play football in the NFL despite his ability to be a starting-caliber quarterback in a 32-team league that often lacks 32 starting-caliber quarterbacks, but he did receive interest from the Alliance of American Football, which kicked off its inaugural season this past weekend without Kaepernick’s involvement.
On Thursday, AAF co-founder Bill Polian told Lindsay Jones of The Athletic that CEO Charlie Ebersol spoke with Kaepernick to gauge his interest in playing in the eight-team spring league.
On the one hand, playing in the AAF would be an opportunity for Kaepernick to prove that he’s still good at playing quarterback. On the other hand, it’d be understandable if Kaepernick feels as if he doesn’t need to prove he’s still good at playing quarterback considering his credentials.
Kaepernick’s decision takes the air out of the idea that he wants to play football again.
The AAF offered him a chance to prove to all his critics that he could still play quarterback at a high level.
If he excelled, an NFL team may even have given him a chance.
But Kaepernick turned down the opportunity and proved that the only position he is interested in is that of a left-wing political martyr.
