    Kaepernick should disappear from our lives. We would all be better for it.

    Yes, he should and no one will watch him there either.

    Why let this joker stay in the news? Do we really have this fascination with radicals and people who throw our values in our faces to promote their own biases?

    Yes, just like Tommie Smith.

    Joewillie, here are the starting quarterbacks in the league. Preskot, Manninng, Foles, Smith, Trubisky, Stafford, Cousins, Smith, Ryan, Newton, Brees, Winston, Rosen, Goff, Garappolo, Wilson, Allen, Tannehill, Brady, Darnold, Flacco, Dalton, Mayfield, Rothlesberger, Watson, Luck, Bortles, Mariota, Keenum, Mahomes, Rivers and Carr. Please point out the 15 people on this list that are worse than Kaepernick. I can maybe see 2 or 3. But how quickly we forget his record was 3-18 his last two years as a starter.

    This hero, needs to be back to work. So any team in the NFL or AOA should definitely hook him up, if not for his ability then for his heroism.

    I think about five teams talked to him, he just thinks he is worth more than the owners do. They really don't care that he knelled during the national anthem. They sold lots of jerseys with his number on it. He's not as good as some people think, they use his stats from his best year, he is inconsistent and lost many of the critical games. But football players are like fish, leave them out for awhile and they start to stink.

    He won't play. He is too afraid to fail and diminish is image.

    As of now he is a fleeting symbol of racism, division and hate. Failing at quarterback or some other position in a 2nd tier league would disparage his image.

    Who cares?
    How is this news?
    Give us all a break and never write or publish another article about this guy.

    Absolutely not! The AAF is off to a great start and bringing in this widely hated figure would destroy any chance for it’s future success. He made his choices, now he needs to go away. And the press needs to stop trying to glorify him. He is a whiner and does not deserve any attention.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but CK's last season in the NFL was his worst, and he was one of the lowest rated QB's in the league. The last thing the AAF needs is someone as radioactive as CK. They'd be crazy to hire him with all of his baggage. You would lose at least half of your fan base.

    He should

    Might prove he is good enough for the NFL

    Only let this football distraction play if you are interested in creating an instant, huge bias against your new league, when you need every listening ear. Hire him. I’m done. But that’s just me supporting our nation’s veterans who’ve served.l, whom this guy disrepected.

    "He had a right to kneel and the owners have a right not to hire him. Good for the NFL!"

    You are spot on! Protesting for a cause on your own time is one thing, protesting on your employer's time is something else. Kaepernick made a choice and the owners have made theirs. Personally, I don't think he is one of the better quarterbacks available, anyway. And every year, new quarterbacks come out of college. Is he better than Goff? Rosen? Josh Allen? Mahomes? Mayfield? At his age, is he better than Brees? Wilson? Tannehill? Luck? If I were an NFL owner, I would rather take a chance on a young rookie with no baggage than Kaepernick with his cause. He had his NFL career, made a lot of money and got more than his share of attention. He should just go away.

    He is done and needs to disappear forever.

    Kap would be a perfect fit there. After the NFL defenses adapted to the pistol his effectiveness declined.

    AAF is in life support, why would any owner hires someone so radioactive that would turn away at least 50% of your customers/fans? Play football ... leave your politics at home that is a winning strategy

    Sure....go ahead and have him play....they don't really want "spectators", "fans" or "sponsors" anyway, do they ?

  • joewillie12 Corpus Christi, TX

    No.

    He is better than 15 current starting NFL QBs.. Such a waste to PNG him for standing up for his principles when there aren't 32 people on the planet who can play that position competently.

    NFL owners would rather lose than do the right thing.

    I think that he would be a fool to play in the AAF. If he stinks the joint up, then any notion of collusion would be absurd because he would prove once and for all that he can’t play effectively in the NFL. He would simply disappear. It’s much better for him to play aggrieved fighter for social justice and have sympathizers fawn all over him and declare him a hero.

    If they play the nation anthem at games, no.

    He should take his Nike money and go away. He made his bed, now he's gotta lay in it. When you protest on Company time guess what? No one's gonna hire you.

    He had a right to kneel and the owners have a right not to hire him. Good for the NFL!

    No! and heck no to playing for the Salt Lake Stallions.

    The NFL should be ashamed of itself. At least let him compete for a job. Some of the other QBs now playing are dreadful. But should he play in the AAF? If he wants to, why even ask the question?
