Anonymous NFL Executives Estimate That 90 Percent Of NFL Front Offices Hate Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick’s career may be over if he gets cut by the San Francisco 49ers and it’s not because he doesn’t have the ability to play the game at a high level but due to the fact that he’s unanimously disliked around the league.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report interviewed seven NFL executives and they all voiced their dislike for Kaepernick and his stance.

“I don’t want him anywhere near my team,” one front office executive said. “He’s a traitor.”
He wasn’t alone in the anger directed toward Kaepernick. In interviews with seven team executives, each said he didn’t want Kaepernick on his team. This is far from scientific, but I believe this is likely the feeling among many front office executives. Not all. But many.
All seven estimated 90 to 95 percent of NFL front offices felt the same way they did. One executive said he hasn’t seen this much collective dislike among front office members regarding a player since Rae Carruth. Remember Rae Carruth? He’s still in prison for the plot to murder his pregnant girlfriend.
“He has no respect for our country,” one team executive said. “F–k that guy.”
“In my career, I have never seen a guy so hated by front office guys as Kaepernick,” one general manager said.
It’s pretty shocking that that Kaepernick is getting the same amount of hate around the league as someone who attempted to murder but that’s where we’re at right now.
