LeSean McCoy says Colin Kaepernick unemployed because of play, not protests

"Freedom of speech. If guys want to stand, they can stand". "I think maybe they could choose a better platform to state their beliefs". "If I ask you one question: Who is Colin calling on to follow what he's talking about?"

On Monday, several Browns players knelt in prayer during the playing of the national anthem prior to the team's preseason victory over the New York Giants. The NFL, like Colin Kaepernick, also has the same rights afforded him.

Vick, almost three years removed from playing football of any kind, wasn't almost good enough to justify the "chaos" that came with bringing a convicted dogfighter and admitted dogkiller to town. "I think his situation is not good enough to have him on the team with all the attention that comes along with it".

McCoy said players like Tom Brady or Odell Beckham Jr. would be worth that type of distraction. "With certain guys, it's not worth it". It's all what you believe in.

"I am grateful for the widespread support and praise that Seth is getting for his actions, but I would like to offer a humble reminder that a man - a black man - literally lost his job for taking a knee, week after week, on his own", she wrote. It is what it is.

"I just want to start by saying it saddens me that in 2017 we have to do something like that". In the wake of the tragic violence in Charlottesville, VA and President Donald Trump's failure to adequately condemn the racist elements that fueled it, more National Football League players are following Kaepernick's example.

"I really enjoy speaking with him", Aaron said.

The civil rights organization's interim president, Derrick Johnson, said in a letter to National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell that it's apparently "no sheer coincidence" that Kaepernick isn't on a roster. But the Eagles did, and McCoy (who was only a rookie at the time) never said a word about it.

Oh, and he also thinks Mike Vick was "10 times better" than Kaepernick. So you'll deal with that situation. The good, the bad attention you'll get.

The rally was organized by a coalition of advocacy organizations, faith-based groups and sports personalities through The People's Consortium for Human and Civil Rights.

"I think it's more than that". You know there's a lot that's going on in the outside so I commend Kaep on raising the awareness for the social injustices going on in this world. I think it would give him some incentive, I think it would help him. There's so many outsiders (that) can mess up a team.

"I'd love to see some other payers stand up". And I haven't seen more media for a player like that ever.

"Compared to Kaepernick, he's not really that good of a player to deal with it".

During the interview, Foreman called Kaepernick a "great football player". "But those guys we talked about, they would be the stars of the team".

Those recent 49ers squads have been widely judged as poor in overall talent, though, and they went 4-9 with other quarterbacks.
