The reality is that systemic racism and police misconduct is a very real problem that Kap brought attention to.
The problem is people expected a well thought out message and platform from a fucking jock who takes hits to the head for a living.
Kaep aint that smart(see: pig socks).......but he was right.
Funny how he brought this issue up his last year of playing ball when he was going to get cut...
Benched yes, but cut? Kap was still better than most backups in the league and would've made millions riding the bench.
He got benched for Blaine Gabbart.
And the idea that he should have been a backup somewhere, doesn't tell the entire story.
Krap was indeed declining, and yes he still had the ability to make big plays if everything lined up for him.
The problem was, his skillset didn't matchup with a lot of pocket passing teams.
A coaching staff wouldn't want Krap backing up a guy like Drew Brees or TomBrady, because they would have to have a different offense for him.
So Kraps options were realistically limited.
He would have been a better fit backing up guys like Russ Wilson or Cam Newton.
So combine his one read gun & run $tyle ot playing, with all of his drama and baggage he would bring to the locker room -- and it makes perfect sense that not many teams wanted to consider him.
When they did, like Seattle, he priced himself out.
The funny part...
After potential opportunities with Seattle and Baltimore didn't happen -- Krap actually went on record saying he would no longer kneel during the anthem if a team signed him.
So, his ""protest"" was only important when it was convieant for him having a job.
The guy's a joke.
