Brady wishes Kaepernick return
Superstar Tom Brady also joins the queue of advocates for the contractless Colin Kaepernick.His support comes as a surprise.
The non-contractual Colin Kaepernick is delighted to welcome the next prominent supporter: Superstar Tom Brady has campaigned for a return of his quarterback colleague to the NFL.
In the TV show “CBS This Morning”, the five-time Super Bowl Champion said:”I have always watched him and admired him for his playing style.He was a great young quarterback.He’s probably got what it takes to play in the NFL again, and I hope he gets his chance.”
Brady is not the first NFL star to stand up for Kaepernick.Panthers-Quarterback Cam Newton or ex-team-mate Vance McDonald had also demanded a fair chance for the former shooting star.
US rapper Jay-Z even dedicated a song to Kaepernick.
Brady’s advocacy comes as a surprise, however, as the Patriots quarterback is said to have a close relationship with US President Donald Trump.
During his time with the San Francisco 49ers, however, Kaepernick had clearly taken a stand against Trump and racist injustices in the USA, thanks to his anthem protest, which apparently caught up with him in the search for a new NFL team.
