Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was spotted playing football for the first time in years over the weekend. However, after footage of his abysmal playing abilities went viral on Twitter, Kaepernick is likely regretting taking the field again.
The Daily Caller reported that Kaepernick was spotted playing in Quavo’s Huncho Day football game in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sunday. Unfortunately for Kaepernick, he looks like anything but a football star in videos that show him playing.
In one video, Kaepernick overthrows his receiver in the end zone, and in another, he clearly lacks some serious velocity.
Kaepernick was finally able to throw one touchdown to Giants running back Saquon Barkley, but the ball was definitely far from accurate.
These videos have seemingly shattered the narrative that Kaepernick has tried to spread about himself claiming that he has been blacklisted from the NFL for racist reasons. He has been unable to be signed by another team since leaving the 49ers in 2017, and Kaepernick and his supporters have long claimed that this “blacklisting” is revenge for the protests he carried out in which he took a knee during the national anthem to protest against racism inequality in the United States.
In contrast, Kaepernick’s detractors have pointed out that he was a subpar quarterback who led the 49ers to closing record during his last season with them. They claim that it is his lack of football talent that has stopped him from being resigned, and these videos certainly do lend credence to that.
Perhaps if Kaeperick forced a little less on race-baiting and a little more on learning how to throw a football, he’d have a new team by now!
