If you wanted more proof that Colin Kaepernick is not going to get another shot in the NFL, the Redskins just gave it to us.
If you don’t follow the NFL, then you may have missed this.
After losing two quarterbacks to broken legs, Washington searches for a break. As they go deeper in the playoff race, they find themselves considering pulling people out of the stands to play QB.
Despite needing a QB like the flowers need the rain, the Redskins apparently do have limits to which they aren’t willing to sink.
While notorious anti-American quarterback-turned-free-agent Colin Kaepernick awaits his shot, the Redskins play amnesia.
Well, it might have something to do with Kaepernick’s decision to protest the supposed oppression of minorities in the United States. Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem back in 2016.
He converted from gridiron warrior to social justice warrior. And the by-product of his decision hijacked the 2016 NFL season.
The NFL went from being America’s one of our national pastime, to yet another pillar under attack by Leftism.
Other NFL players followed Kaepernick’s, as they claimed they were “not protesting the flag”. A few other players took a knee and linked arms for diversity. Still others stood, but raised their fist in defiance.
In defiance of a league with 68 percent black players. Apparently the league isn’t black enough. And America isn’t guilty enough.
But karma comes full circle.
As one can only surmise that the Redskin figured they have enough “racial” problems, given their name.
So when asked about Collin Kaepernick on Tuesday, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team considered him. Then they didn’t.
Kaepernick just isn’t worth the cost he inflicts on an organization in intangible ways. So in football terms, the Redskins punted on Kaepernick, and he got no tryout.
As JP Finlay of NBC Sports tweeted:
Jay Gruden on Colin Kaepernick: “He’s been talked about and discussed but we will probably go a different direction.”

More from Breitbart:
Gruden told 106.7 The Fan that they gave some thought to the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, but it didn’t take them much time to reject the notion.
“He’s been talked about and discussed, but we will probably go a different direction,” Gruden said according to Pro Football Talk.
Washington gave workouts to several candidates including EJ Manuel, Kellen Clemens, Mark Sanchez, Josh Johnson, and T.J. Yates. But, they did not bring in Kaepernick.
The Skins ultimately signed Mark Sanchez for the slot.
Can you imagine the Redskin’s discussions around adding Kaepernick?
In this pc world, I doubt they even spoke, but merely passed notes. In the end, they decided the team has enough racial problems.
Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers on March 3. And much to his chagrin, players of lesser skill continue to get deals as teams passed over Kaepernick.
In August, Kaepernick filed a collusion case in August against the NFL. In his lawsuit he claims the league now blackballs him. He contends that his stance on the anthem, which ironically is kneeling, impacted his ability to get a deal.
An arbitrator approved the case in August, and ruled that it could continue to trial.
He doesn’t stand much of a chance, because there are teams who claim to have wanted to sign Kaepernick.
John Elway of the Denver Broncos confirmed that the Broncos were one such team. It is rumored that Kaepernick risks losing his deal with Nike if he signs with another team.
Regardless, the American people don’t think the NFL is an unfair or unjust in their handling of Kaepernick. Though he hurts the league financially, he torpedoes their branding.
The many people who left the sport now see Kaepernick as the “new brand” of the NFL. The league who caters to spoiled racists. Kaepernick represents the multi-millionaire malcontent who refuses to shut up and play the game most men would give body parts to play.
America doesn’t treat blacks unfairly. In fact, the statistics counter what Kaepernick believes. But he doesn’t care about statistics and the reality facing blacks in America.
America doesn’t need a Chamber of Commerce to explain how well blacks have it in this country. Open your eyes and look around. This country is voluntary. Europe and other parts of the world have open borders and seem to want anybody. Kaepernick is free to go there.
Amazingly, Kaepernick continues to live in the United States. And he hasn’t given up his citizenship.
