Shufflefoot LeSean McCoy Says Colin Kaepernick Not Good Enough For "Distraction"

Then it's the chaos that comes with it. "I think his situation is not good enough to have him on the team with all the attention that comes along with it". I'm sure if a guy like, I don't know, (Tom) Brady or a guy like whoever is your favorite player - Odell Beckham or a guy like that - you'll deal with the attention and play him. McCoy was a teammate of former quarterback Michael Vick, who came to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 after serving time in prison on dogfighting charges. To the running back, there was no comparison between Vick and Kaepernick.

Later Wednesday, the NAACP said the organization is seeking a meeting with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss Kaepernick.

"I'm going to give you the real deal: I'm an American", Brown said. "When I was growing up, many many years ago, my mother always told me if you get stopped just throw your hands down and that's the end of it".

National Football League teams will find ways to excuse anything if a player is good enough.

The rally was organized by a coalition of advocacy organizations, faith-based groups and sports personalities through The People's Consortium for Human and Civil Rights. I certainly don't think Kellen Moore is the answer, and neither is Luke McCown. But also, dealing with him with him on the team you're trying to build together.

"I'd love to see some other payers stand up".

It's clear now that the Jaguars don't have an NFL-level starter on their roster, while Kaepernick sits unsigned.

Kaepernick has been a man without a team since early March after opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers. "They're going to be the star of the teams".

There have also been a handful of other national protests, including one outside the NFL's headquarters in NY.

Derrick Johnson, interim CEO of the NAACP, wrote in a letter to Goodell: "Last season, Mr Kaepernick chose to exercise his First Amendment rights by protesting the inequitable treatment of people of color in America". Brown seemed to take issue with Kaepernick's activism, stating that when a player signs with a team, he should abide by its rules. I just prefer they do that with their voices, as Richard Sherman has done repeatedly, rather than taking an action that only causes more divisiveness. No matter what you're trying to say, some people can't see around the fact that you're insulting those people who made the ultimate sacrifice.

As you know, the National Football League does not now have a policy on the books as it relates to expressed advocacy.
