Following disgraced NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s release from the San Francisco 49ers, he has had trouble finding a new team to bring him on board. While many claim that his highly-publicized protests during the National Anthem contributed to his unemployment, many insist that his poor performances as a quarterback are enough reason for why teams like the Baltimore Ravens do not seem interested in signing him.
Many commentators and former NFL players, including future NFL Hall of Famer Ray Lewis, have been critical of Kaepernick. Lewis posted a video on Twitter calling for Kaepernick to keep his activism private since it will allow people to judge him based on his performance rather than his commentary.
Lewis’ commentary did not receive positive responses from many Kaepernick supporters, including his girlfriend Nessa Diab, a radio host with HOT97 in New York City.
