San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has spent the entire season focusing on race-baiting and sitting during the national anthem rather than on football. Now, this has come back to bite him in a big way.
Conservative Tribune reported that in October, Kaepernick quietly signed a revised deal with the 49ers that basically deleted the last three years of his contract, 2018 through 2020. This means that Kaepernick could end up being a free agent in March, and will likely be out of work by the end of the 2016-2017 season.
Kaepernick made headlines last summer when he insulted millions of Americans by refusing to stand during the national anthem at every game. Since then, his performance on the field has been lacking to say the least, and he has led his team to a pathetic 9-game losing streak.
The 49ers have tried to blame Kaepernick’s bad performance on the fact that he missed most of the offseason due to shoulder, thumb and knee injuries.
“(P)hysically (he) is not where he was pre-injury,” 49ers head coach Chip Kelly explained.
While another team might sign Kaepernick, it will be tough for him to find one that will take him given the negative publicity that surrounds him. He has managed to alienate the vast majority of football fans with his antics, most recently by saying that despite his frequent critiques of the 2016 election, he did not vote. In fact, he has never voted in his life, yet he still claims to be a civil rights leader.
Frankly, we’re glad to see that karma came back to get this race-baiter. SHARE this story if you think Colin Kaepernick got what was coming to him!
