For the entire offseason, Colin Kaepernick’s unemployment has been a hot topic of discussion. Many believe the former Niners quarterback is getting blackballed by NFL executives because they disagree with his national anthem protest while others don’t think he’s a good enough to play in the league anymore.

On Thurday, Bills running back LeSean McCoy gave his two cents on the Colin Kaepernick situation.

“That may have something to do with but I think it also has a lot to do with his play,” . “I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. Then it’s the chaos that comes with it. It’s a lot. A team’s trying to win and not have a distraction on a team. As a player, there’s certain players that can be on a team with big distractions, and other players, they’re not good enough that it’s worth it. I think his situation is, not good enough to have on a team with all the attention that comes along with it. I’m sure if a guy like [Tom] Brady or a guy like — whoever is your favorite player, Odell Beckham or a guy like that — you’ll deal with that attention and play him. With certain guys, it’s not worth it.”

McCoy went on to compare Kaepernick with his former teammate Michael Vick and explained that Kaep isn’t worth the distraction because ‘he’s not that good of a player”.

“Take a guy like Michael Vick who went through all that he went through. He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick. So you’ll deal with that situation. You’ll deal with that attention, the media aspect of it, the good the bad attention to it compared to Kaepernick, he’s really not that good of a player to deal with.”

While McCoy is probably right that better players than Kaepernick would be given more leeway it doesn’t means that Kaep isn’t being blackballed by the NFL over his views.
