What is that based on ? The part of "in it for himself" ?

Still looking for that discussion of his strengths and weakness on the field, and how he might fit in anyone's plans.

I am not a Kapernick fan by the way...he gave the Niners a shot when they needed it, mostly with his legs, but you are either ill informed or extremely naive if you think these posts have anything to do with the game.

Still awaiting some explanation on this discussion of his football skills
I alluded to his skills in my first post. But here are some more we can discuss.

In his six years in the NFL he averaged a completion percentage of less than 60% Where as Tom Brady over his entire career has 64%.

His passing yards per game have only averaged over 200 yards one season. With an career average of 188. Tom Brady has averaged over 200 yards per game in almost every season he's played. And has a career average yards per game of 262.

I only compared him to Brady since the Patriots are reportedly in the running.

Your defense of cohorts is noted, as I did not mention your post.

This is not a dance I like ever. It is a discussion, however innocently begun that most responses are veiled attempts at character assisination, and I surely am not going to defend him, simply call out any phonies and blowhards attempting to be holier than thou, when they trail badly in any race for the high ground.

IF he is picked up, he will be a backup until he retires. He played in SF when they had a definitive need at QB, and like I said, he gave them a shot, albeit a short one.

I thought the cartoon said it all. It's old phrase, "Money Talks and BS Walks", he was all in until he found the pot of gold.

If Kaepernick wanted to really get back in the NFL, he could be playing right now in the AAF. They offered him a position on a team, and his answer was, I want $20 million to play. These guys are getting about $100,000 and most are very happy to be out there showing what they got and hoping for another shot in the NFL. I'm watching the AAF right now, I've seen every game, I'm sure all the NFL teams have scouts watching the games as well.

Josh Woodrum, who was Joe Flacco's backup for a couple of years, is out there playing for Salt Lake City. He was injured in the first game, but he's getting experience and trying to get back on an NFL roster.

Why are players kneeling during the playing of our National Anthem?

NFL players kneel during the national anthem as a way to protest police brutality and racial inequality in the United States.

What players don't seem to understand is the games are played for our amusement, it's entertainment. Essentially it's a form of escape from day to day life in mostly big cities where these games are played. The owners depend on fans buying tickets, watching the games on TV, buying team merchandise. If a fan becomes disenchanted with this group of entertainers, what would they do, they could boycott, quit watching, quit going to the games.

Essentially Kaepernick and others like him are trying to do it kill the golden goose that feeds them. The owners, just like any other business owner, will not hire employees that create trouble. They call it collusion, I call it good business sense to not hire these people. Also, next time Kaepernick or his friends face trouble and call for police, they'll be glad they came. In their eyes, police are no good until you need one.

Robert Kraft

This looks like the man who would decide whether Kaepernick goes to the Patriots.

In a sense I agree with John W. At this level it is not about football as much as it is a business. Would you hire someone who is going to bring bad press, potential loss of fans and unknown problems?

He would never make either of those teams. He is a has been QB with limited skills. That is the reason no team has picked him up.
