This is why the member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. joined the crowd of about 3,000 on Wednesday in a rally in front of the National Football League's NY headquarters in a show of support for the quarterback, who is also a member of the mostly-Black fraternity. One of them is Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy.

Is Kaepernick going to come in and elevate the Jaguars to a championship contender? No. "I would love that, I think it would give him incentive, I think it would help him". One thing I learned about just here in America is that people, they're followers.

Velvet Lounge, 67 E. Cermak Road, and Bureau Bar, 75 E. 16th St, announced Wednesday in two identical Instagram posts that they will not broadcast National Football League games until Kaepernick's situation is addressed.

On Monday, several Browns players knelt in prayer during the playing of the national anthem prior to the team's preseason victory over the New York Giants. "The NFL has proven with their treatment of Colin Kaepernick that they do not mind if Black players get a concussion". That chaos that comes along with it, it's a lot... "I think his situation is, not good enough to have on a team with all the attention that comes along with it".

McCoy has personal experience of being on a team with a controversial player.

What time does The Defenders hit Netflix?
She wants NY (and other cities) to crumble; she wants to "bring life where there is death;" and to "bring light into the dark". If you have not seen these shows, you should definitely watch them on Netflix before watching The Defenders! .

McCoy was asked how Kaepernick's situation compares to that of former National Football League quarterback Michael Vick, who became a Philadelphia Eagles teammate of McCoy in 2009 after spending time in prison on federal dogfighting charges.

"That's a great example". But the Eagles did, and McCoy (who was only a rookie at the time) never said a word about it. The idea is to get people to think, not to drive a wedge even deeper, because what you're doing is perceived as an insult to something that many have sacrificed their lives in order for us to enjoy these freedoms.

Just like the public at large, National Football League players have differing opinions on Colin Kaepernick and his status as an unemployed quarterback as other QBs less talented have been able to get jobs.

The NFL needs to know that a large part of the viewing audience may very well exercise their rights to turn off any game where a player (s) takes a knee during the anthem.

"I just think as a player, there's certain players that can be on a team with big distractions, and other players, they're not good enough ... that it's worth it", McCoy said. McCoy says Kaepernick isn't talented enough to deal with whatever "distraction" he'd bring. "That's something that I don't really partake in", McCoy said. There's so many outsiders (that) can mess up a team.
