Washington show NFL teams would rather lose than sign Colin Kaepernick

Washington were pushing for the playoffs until two of their quarterbacks went down injured. But they have ignored a perfectly solid replacement

Colin Kaepernick will never play in the NFL again, that much was made clear this week. Washington’s decision to sign the lightweight talents of Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson over Kaepernick, a week after claiming Reuben Foster – a man arrested twice in the last year for domestic violence – on waivers and announcing to the world that it was prioritizing winning football games above all else, is as shameful as it is predictable.

Washington plucked Johnson, who last threw a pass in the NFL in 2011, out of obscurity this week to back up Sanchez after Colt McCoy’s season ended with a broken fibula. McCoy previously replaced Alex Smith, who is out for the season with a broken leg suffered in Week 11.

His heart and his passion are not on football. Nobody wants you if you have no passion to play

He doesn't have the game to justify carrying his excess baggage.

If he wasn't a political hot potato, what team in their collective right mind would want a poor passing quarterback who may have priced himself out of the market?

You can lose games...or you can hire Kaepernick and lose games AND fans. Can't understand why no one

No they don't. They are trying to draw eyes/publicity from a worldwide base. It's a different

analysis and metric altogether.

His ability was declining and doesn't support the ill will he'd create among a segment of a fan base. It's an entertainment industry and that's the analysis by the teams.

It is quite different from Nike's reasoning.

I will say this for him. He has walked the walk of his talk and pretty much lost the rest of his

NFL career. That’s a pretty ballsy thing for a marginal QB to do.

Respect him for that even though I completely disagree with his protest manner.

Those who write articles like that are pushing a narrative and probably know nothing about football

I mean, he was pretty bad at the end of his career. Even without the political and media drama he would probably still be out of the league. And I do not care what your career is, we have all been around co-workers who although talented were judged to be not worth their excess baggage.
