An unnamed source from NFL said that Colin Kaepernick has declined to sign with them because he didn’t want the league minimum salary.
This information contradicted Kaepernick’s explanation for not signing with them was due to his political views.
“Colin thinks he’s fighting a much higher battle than he is,” the source claimed. “He views himself as a race messiah.”
Baltimore Ravens also started negotiations with Kaepernick, Steve Bisciotti the owner, said that he wanted Kaepernick as a backup, seeing how Joe Flacco injures himself frequently.
Anyhow, after Ravens icon Ray Lewis shared a video saying that Kaepernick should be more focused on football instead of SJWing, things got messy.
Nessa Diab, Keap’s girlfriend, and his negotiation advisor insulted Lewis saying that he is a slave and Bisciotti is his master. So the negotiations ended, and Keap won’t be playing in Charm City this 2017.
The Seattle Seahawks also wanted to sign Keap, but even though they were impressed with his playing tactics, they refused to make a deal with the player. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll explained why:
“He’s a starter in this league…We have a starter, but he is a starter in this league and I can’t imagine somebody won’t give him a chance to play.”
Carroll didn’t want to talk about the salary Kaepernick was asking for, but CBS Sports reported that he was asking for 9 or $10 million per year and an opportunity to start.
It’s clear that Colin Kaepernick is using the political views to cover the fact that nobody wasn’t to give him the salary he is asking for.
But the most upsetting thing is that Keap’s cause is used by the liberals to attack NFL. Dr. Harry Edwards, a sports sociologist and civil rights activist who is advising Kaepernick, claims that NFL is going to have problems if Kaepernick is not signed before the season starts.
“If Kaep makes up his mind (to play), he wouldn’t only go in and make a team, he’d put pressure on somebody to start,” Dr. Edwards stated in May.
“I don’t think there’s any question that there are some owners who wouldn’t have him in the league, much less on their team,” he continued. “But I fully expect one (team to sign him), because it’s in the best interest of the league to have him on a team.”
And Spike Lee has joined them in spreading this propaganda, he now is pushing for a protest at NFL headquarters to stand with Kaepernick and defend his cause. He also wore a tweet about a rally Aug. 23.
