What team will Colin Kaepernick go to this season?

Last NFL season, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback refused to stand during the playing of the U.S. national anthem to acknowledge wrongdoings of African Americans and minorities like Eric Garner, Philando Castile who have been brutally murdered by police officers.

”I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL network’s Steve Wyche during the NFL’s preseason last year.

“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kaepernick would later kneel instead of not participating at all while the national anthem was played during NFL games.

The Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins are said to have had interest, but they’ve since moved on.News over the weekend indicated that the Jacksonville Jaguars took a look at Kaepernick during the offseason.

Kaepernick led the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl XLVII and NFL. It seems that NFL GMs are simply not looking for the media scrutiny and constant attention.
