Colin Kaepernick has made public headlines again lately after him and his team released a two-page ‘fact sheet’ addressing false rumors and narratives.
The document mentions the fact he and his team have reached out to every NFL team about opportunities and have received little to no response. It also mentioned that Kaepernick has been working out five days per week for the past three years showing he still very much so wants to play again.
His name jumped back into a spotlight on Thursday, albeit from nothing he personally did, at a President Trump rally in Minneapolis. A man in the crowd was spotted wearing a Kaepernick jersey and less than an hour before the rally was set to begin he was removed from the crowd.
What a move by blowing kisses to those people in the crowd that we can only assume were shouting some not kind words at the man.
According to Fox 9, it is presumed he was kicked out of the Target Center where the rally took place and it’s unclear what led to the move by security. It’s tough to imagine he was kicked out just because he was wearing a jersey, but crazier things have happened.
It’s no secret President Trump and Kaepernick don’t see eye-to-eye on things. Trump used Kaepernick’s protest during the 2016 NFL season as a major talking point during his campaign.
Kaepernick’s fact-sheet concluded as so, “In summary, it is difficult to think of another young player in NFL history with statistics and character as impressive as Colin’s not being given an opportunity to earn a spot on an NFL roster after what he has accomplished.”
