Colin Kaepernick could be one of the 32 most talented quarterbacks in the NFL right now, but he’s unable to get a job in the NFL one year after he started his protest against racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. As the Jaguars pick between Blake Bortles and Chad Henne, as the Ravens wait for Joe Flacco to get healthy, as the Colts hope Andrew Luckcan heal in time for the regular season, Kaepernick remains unsigned.

On Thursday, Browns legend Jim Brown weighed in on Kaepernick’s situation. According to Brown, Kaepernick needs to decide if he wants to be a football player or an activist.

  1. Jim is correct. As a retired serviceman, what we do in our off time is mostly our business. However, we cannot wear the uniform. Colin should have respected the flag while in his football uniform. I saw a group of new police officer graduates turn their backs on POTUS Obama. They should have all been fired. They were not. Just an observation.

  2. Colin Kaepernick is a young black man representing injustice here in the United States. Not as a football player not as an activist as a blackman. He choose the football field for his forum. He has every right to express his disgust for the senseless killings senseless murders of young black men here in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Those stand by old and young black men critizing him instead of taking a stand with him he’s kneeling for Travon martin who was murdered and the murderer George Zimmerman walked free he’s kneeling for Eric Garner choked to death on the street by law enforcement old men like Jim Brown George Foreman Charles Barkley are a disgrace to their memories because they obviously never stood for anything just slave to the system
