For many NFL players, leaving the spotlight due to injuries, declined performance, aging, or off-the-field distractions is hard to reckon with.

For Colin Kaepernick, all of these factors are the reason for his departure from pro football – most notably his crusade to destroy law enforcement and drum up public hatred toward the USA.

But Colin Kaepernick made the most outrageous statement recently that has everyone talking.

In a recent interview, Colin Kaepernick claimed he still believes he has a chance to take a team to the Super Bowl.

Yes, the Super Bowl . . . a feat most quarterbacks in their prime can only dream about.

As you probably remember, Kaepernick has some success for the 49ers, even taking them to a Super Bowl where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.

But he then saw a quick decline, and has not played a snap in five years.

So in a desperate attempt to get some attention, Kaepernick declared jihad on the United States, white people, and law enforcement.

Kaepernick started the trend of disgracefully kneeling during anthems and has made many off-the-field comments about how much he despises the nation that has given a low-IQ athlete like him opportunities to make millions for throwing a ball.

Kaepernick is locker room poison, which is why all 32 teams have resisted signing him.

But Kaepernick still thinks he has a chance . . .

In an interview with Ebony magazine, Kaepernick claimed:

“I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I’m prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again. That’s not something I will ever let go of, regardless of the actions of 32 teams and their partners to deny me employment. The same way I was persistent in high school is the same way I’m gonna be persistent here.”

Kaepernick can practice as much as he wants, but if he doesn’t change his tone and his rancid attitude, then he’ll be doing nothing more than kneeling from the stands instead of playing on the football field for the foreseeable future.
