Roger Goodell Pressuring NFL Teams to Sign Colin Kaepernick

Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, is reportedly encouraging teams to sign controversial former player Colin Kaepernick for the next season, as reported by ABC News.

Goodell confirmed his intentions in an interview with ESPN during their “The Return of Sports” special on Monday. The 32-year-old Kaepernick has not played for any team in three years since he began his controversial campaign of kneeling during the Na Anthem, when he was playing with the San Francisco 49ers, back in 2016.

“If he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it’s gonna take a team to make that decision,” Goodell explained, adding that “I welcome that, support a club making that decision, and encourage them to do that.”

Goodell’s statement is representative of the massive shift in the NFL’s attitude towards the anti-American practice of kneeling during the anthem, which Kaepernick started out of protest of alleged “systemic racism” against African-Americans. Following the race riots after George Floyd’s death, virtually every major corporation and sports federation in the country has voiced for the far-left Black Lives Matter movement, which frequently uses anti-American rhetoric.
