The unthinkable almost happened.
Rumors spread that America-hater Colin Kaepernick was about to be signed to an NFL team.
And then the leader of the anti-American anthem protests got some very bad news.
When Houston Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson went down with a season ending knee injury, there was speculation that Kaepernick would end up on the roster.
Watson lit up the NFL like no rookie quarterback has ever done before with 19 touchdown passes, and he leaves the Texans with a huge hole to fill as they try to stay in the AFC South Division race.
With former backup Tom Savage as the only option, speculation ramped up that Kaepernick would quickly join the Texans.
But the Texans went with former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin – who played in college for head coach Bill O’Brien – and T.J. Yates to fill out their roster.
The team passed on Kaepernick – and all the baggage he brings – after owner Bob McNair did not o.k. a workout.
However, it was only days ago did Kaepernick’s lawyer predict he would be on a roster within 10 days.
“The day where Colin Kaepernick is back on an NFL roster could be coming soon.
During an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show, Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos stated that he expects his client to be signed by an NFL team within the next ten days.
“I think within the next 10 days somebody will sign him,” said Geragos. “I think somebody’s gonna sign him. I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more.”
Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March, and generated little interest from NFL teams in free agency. He visited the Seattle Seahawks in May, but was not offered a contract, and drew interest from the Baltimore Ravens after an injury to quarterback Joe Flacco, but was not seriously considered after his girlfriend disparaged Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and team legend Ray Lewis via Twitter. Earlier this month, Kaepernick filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL, alleging that the league’s owners colluded with each other to keep him off a roster.”
But Kaepernick’s own play and conduct will ensure he never gets signed.
He deteriorated so badly during his time in San Francisco that he was benched.
Then he kick started the anti-American anthem protests, attacked police officers as pigs, and celebrated Che Guevera – who was Fidel Castro’s butcher and who ran the communist dictator’s torture chambers.
Kaepernick lit the match in the fire that is now burning down the NFL’s business.
Ratings are down.
Fans are staying away.
Polls show the league’s popularity plummeting.
And now sponsors such as Papa John’s are saying being associated with the NFL is bad for business.
