    Quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last season with the San Francisco 49ers when he didn't stand for the national anthem. Film director Spike Lee thinks it's "fishy" a team hasn't signed him in the aftermath.

    Lee expressed his thoughts in an Instagram post, saying the New York Jets should sign the signal-caller and adding, "How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF. Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens."

    Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers' contract this offseason.

    Rich Cimini of ESPN.com noted ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Kaepernick plans to stand for the national anthem in 2017 because he doesn't want his kneeling to distract from the overall discussion on inequality.

    As for the Jets, they are far from set at quarterback, but Cimini said they aren't interested in Kaepernick, adding team owner Woody Johnson—who said Kaepernick was one reason the NFL's television ratings declined in 2016—is an ardent GOP and Donald Trump supporter.

    It probably has nothing to do with the fact that he's sucked behind center for a few years now

    Does ANYONE give a rodent's posterior what spike lee says?!? I think it's fishy that he can even speak... I think it an insult anyone should ask his opinion... I think it asinine that anything he says should get any attention at all.

    Spike Lee known more for front row antics at NBA games than "directing". Who makes more money in commercials than any of his movies made him.
    Maybe Lee wants Kaepernik as a roomie. You know - Birds of a Feather.

    Spike Lee IS a genuine RACIST. He's a HATER. Grand Wazoo of the Kick Kracker Klan. He ought to be thanking the Devil that he ain't worth the bullet to put him out of his misery.

    Players are more than their on field talents. Who you are off the court matters too. Pay him 15 bucks an hour you'll find a suitor

    Kapernick, you just pissed off a bunch of old, rich, white, team owners who know that a dozen or so patriotic young black men graduate every year and can throw a football as good as Kapernick. Those who are drafted know better than to disgrace his team and country.
    Nuff said.

    I have never been a football fan (or any teevee sports) in my life and I know all about this asshole.
    That's how toxic he is. A team would be ten times foolish to put his name on their roster.
    Soon he will be back on the snews calling all of them racists.

    Krapernick cut his own throat. Instead of trying to lead in a positive manner, he made himself a victim and soon to be NFL martyr. Spike Lee should buy a team and give Krap a contract if he thinks he plays so well, which he doesn't.

    It's all about race with them. How come Asians in this country don't need Affirmative Action or cultural welfare? Spike Lee and Krapernick can go F* themselves.

    Sports Media Trashes Conservatives, in the Tank for Colin Kaepernick

    writes at NBC Sports PFT that although Kaepernick may not, as Ron Jaworski once claimed, have the potential to “become one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time,” he deserves a chance “to show what he can still do.”

    Florio agrees with Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the Cleveland Browns should give the QB, who refused to stand for the National Anthem last season, a chance. The blame lies with Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, Florio argues, because he is a Republican with ties to the Jeb Bush for president campaign and he is the brother of Republican Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, without considering that management might be considering their fan base or that Kaepernick just isn’t that good.

    Florio doesn’t seem to remember the Isaiah Crowell ordeal. The Cleveland Browns running back posted an Instagram pic last year of a cop getting murdered by a terrorist and appeared to “advocate the knifing of police officers,” which caused the Cleveland Police Union president to actually threaten to pull security from Browns games. Crowell eventually apologized. Kaepernick might be an especially bad fit in a town already weary of his anti-cop stance.

    Moreover, Florio criticizes New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson for having the same “mindset” as Haslam. Johnson, appointed by President Trump as Ambassador to the United Kingdom, would never employ Kaepernick. That’s because, despite their current search for a quarterback, his new boss already voiced disdain for Kaepernick’s lack of respect for the American Flag and the nation’s police officers. Trump said of Kaepernick’s antics, “Maybe he should find a country that works better for him.”

    Florio seems incredulous, saying, “The fact that no one has even brought him in for a visit suggests that something more than football is influencing the process.”

    Why is it that Florio only points the finger at conservative owners for denying Kaepernick a place on the roster? Why not go after Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, who contributed handsomely to the Hillary Clinton campaign? Yet, instead of signing Kaepernick, Lurie re-signs the white Nick Foles. Why isn’t he under scrutiny?

    The Rooneys own the Steelers, and one of them served as Obama’s ambassador to Ireland. With Ben Roethlisberger musing about retirement, why haven’t they brought Kaepernick in yet, if only for a look?

    As Hamlet’s Marcellus might have said, “Something is rotten in the land of sports media.”

    I dont care if He could throw the ball 100 yards, He's not smart enough to understand that San Francisco was likely the only city that would accept Him. Like Wounded Duck said, He pissed off all of the old, rich, white, billionaire owners who simply DONT NEED HIM! And it's far from racists to not hire someone who will shit on your country in front of millions of people on any given Sunday. Sorry Kap, but take yer little football and go home to cry to your white privileged parents that must be so proud.

    It's more than just disrespecting our country. He disrespected his employer, his teammates, and fans. He drives a wedge into cohesiveness. Something vital to a team.
    He is a self glorifying .
    No football team wants a clown like that.
