Sport NFL World Reacts To Latest Colin Kaepernick News
Colin Kaepernick talks about new show, desire to play in NFL again in rare interview
Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is pursuing other opportunities, but that doesn't mean he has ruled out a return to the NFL. Kaepernick reiterated his desire to continue his NFL career in a rare interview with Ebony. Kaepernick, 33, hasn't played in the NFL since the 2016 season. Kaepernick's latest project, a Netflix series focusing on his high school years, will bring a new challenge for the quarterback: Acting. That series, which will air Oct. 29, has taken up a lot of Kaepernick's time lately, but he still hasn't given up on returning to the NFL. “Absolutely. I am still up at 5 a.m.
Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played professional football in five years, but the 33-year-old quarterback isn’t giving up yet.
The former NFL quarterback revealed in a new interview with EBONY magazine that he’s still training as hard as ever, hoping a team will sign him.
Kaepernick last played in the NFL in 2016. He played for the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-16, but his career – for the time being, anyway – came to an abrupt end shortly following his decision to kneel for the national anthem.
“I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I’m prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again. That’s not something I will ever let go of,” Kaepernick said.

Colin Powell: A trailblazing legacy, blotted by Iraq war
WASHINGTON (AP) — A child of working-class Jamaican immigrants in the Bronx, Colin Powell rose from neighborhood store clerk to warehouse floor-mopper to the highest echelons of the U.S. government. It was a trailblazing American dream journey that won him international acclaim and trust. It was that credibility he put on the line in 2003 when, appearing before the United Nations as secretary of state, he made the case for war against Iraq. When it turned out that the intelligence he cited was faulty and the Iraq War became a bloody, chaotic nightmare, Powell’s stellar reputation was damaged. Still, it wasn’t destroyed.
Thank you to every single person that came together to make this happen. I appreciate you all.

Kaepernick has been trending on social media this week in the wake of Jon Gruden’s resignation from the Las Vegas Raiders. Many are saying that the ex-NFL quarterback has been proven right, time and time again.
This Gruden story is why the NFL just had to pay Kaepernick rather than go through all them subpoenas.

So…..we’re talking a ton of emails well beyond Gruden. Starting to understand why the NFL wanted to settle with Kaepernick on his collusion case.

The firing of Jon Gruden is just helping prove that Colin Kaepernick was right.

Kaepernick continues to believe that he’s been denied opportunities in the NFL because of his activism.
Report: Raiders owner Mark Davis think NFL 'is out to get him'
Given the disdain the younger Davis has with the NFL right now, it's beginning to look like he might follow in his father's footsteps.CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that sources close to Davis say he is furious with NFL front office executives over the investigation into Gruden's emails that forced the longtime coach to resign last week. Davis hasn't said much to the press about the matter but has reportedly vented extensively to those close to him and said he thinks league higher-ups calculated a plan to force Gruden out.
“You’re gonna have to continue to deny me and do so in a public way. And you’re gonna expose yourself by that, but it won’t be because I’m not ready or not prepared,”. “But in that process, I’m also not gonna let you bury my future. I’m gonna continue to do work on the acting and producing side, continue to do the work with Know Your Rights, and make sure we are having an impact. I think that’s the beauty of us collectively—we are not one-dimensional.”
Kaepernick, who played collegiately at Nevada, threw for 12,271 yards and 72 touchdowns during his career. He completed 59.8 percent of his passes while adding 2,300 rushing yards and 13 scores.
