Colin Kaepernick: Unsigned and Unfazed

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stood against racial inequality in 2016. As a free agent in 2017, he has yet to find any suitors.

Colin Kaepernick was America’s most polarizing individual in 2016. During a preseason game as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in protest of the racial injustices rained upon minorities in the United States. The on-camera shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile — both unarmed African-American men killed within hours of each other — outraged the nation and were the spark for Kaepernick’s stunning act of defiance. Weeks after Kaepernick’s initial stance, unarmed Black motorist Terrence Crutcher was shot and killed by a white female police officer during a traffic stop, validating the roots of Kaepernick’s protest. African-American athletes in particular were enraged about the killings and didn’t hold back in voicing their opinions. In the end, it was Kaepernick (and later several other NFL players) who took the biggest step by refusing to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner — a song when sung in its entirety speaks of the fate awaiting a fleeing slave.

Since NFL Free Agency began on March 10th, seventeen quarterbacks have either signed with new teams or resigned with their previous club. None among them can measure up to the resume of Kaepernick — which includes a Super Bowl appearance — and only Mark Sanchez can boast of victories in the postseason. Whether he’s viewed as a backup or a starter, Colin Kaepernick is the most effective quarterback in this free agent class.

Do you believe the signings of re-treads like Mike Glennon, Matt Barkley, Mark Sanchez and Brian Hoyer over Kaepernick were because of sheer ability statistics or leadership qualities?

Didn’t think so.
