Richard Sherman, the Seattle Seahawks outspoken cornerback, doesn’t have time for the bullcrap that everyone keeps saying regarding why Colin Kaepernick isn’t signed, when the reason is clear as day.
The Seahawks’ All-Pro questioned Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti’s priorities and savagely listed every single quarterback that is currently signed who is trash and that Colin Kaepernick is better than.
Via USA Today Sports:
“So what do you think about Colin Kaepernick?” Sherman asked to a reporter.
“What is it about?” Sherman said. “It’s not about football or color. It’s about, ‘Boy, stay in your place.’
“He played in Chip (Kelly)’s system last year and went 16-4 (TD-to-INT ratio) on a bad team. He played well because he’s a good football player. He may not be the best, but he’s better than a lot of these dudes starting.”
“For you to say you have to check with sponsors and fans because this guy took a knee and made a statement?” Sherman said. “Now if you told me this guy threw eight pick-sixes last year and played like a bum, had no talent, that’s one thing. But Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett or whoever is playing for the Jets right now – whoever is starting for the Jets is terrible – have jobs. You’re telling me fans would rather you lose and put a worse player out there because a guy took a stand? That’s where it’s so troublesome to me.”
Sherman cited a few examples, including the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Blake Bortles and the Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff, as starters that don’t measure up to Kaepernick.
“Blake Bortles has shown you enough to where you don’t think Kaep would be a solid fit?” Sherman added. “Kaep has won games.”
That is cold blodded, yet so true.
