Colin Kaepernick – Blackballed or Washed Up?
Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was very blunt regarding his opinion on the NFL and Colin Kaepernick: (Denver Post):
"Quarterbacks are usually the face of the franchise. So, he’s probably being blackballed,” Marshall said Tuesday. "Maybe part of it is owners don’t want their franchise tagged with that. But I still stand by what I said (on Twitter), that he’s the best quarterback in free agency. He’s better than all of those that got signed, the Matt Barkleys, the Nick Foleses. I think that’s a fair assessment, honestly.”

His stated reasons were to protest police brutality and the oppression of minorities everywhere. The public outrage was immediate and intense, lighting up social media and call in radio shows.
