Colin Kapernick spent an entire season embarrassing himself (and his team) as he kneeled during the National Anthem.
He did that because he was a man of principle (giggle giggle).
But now Colin is about to opt out of his 49ers contract and become an unrestricted free agent.
Colin is hoping a new team is willing to write a huge check with lots of zeros on it.
But since teams are going to be real hesitant to write that check because Kapernick is such a pariah (voted the most unpopular player in the entire NFL in Sept) he needs everyone to know his protesting days are over.
Making a political statement (no matter how off base it may be) is real important. But even more important is getting paid lots of money. Make it rain baby….
