Only if hes good enough, Trump said. If hes good enough, I know the owners, I know [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft, I know so many of the owners. If hes good enough, I know these people. They would sign him in a heartbeat. They will do anything they can to win games. Frankly, Id love to see Kaepernick come in if hes good enough. But I dont want to see him come in if somebody thinks its a good PR move. If hes good enough, he will be in

that's the American way. It really has the under 30 crowd befuddled. Guess their parents didn't prepare them for adulthood. Many have moved back home.

Kaepernick realized he didn't have the skills to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, and instead went down the political path. Total money grab. He had a back up job with the Baltimore Ravens, then CHOSE to call the owners Racists publicly, and they pulled the deal.

He's not good enough. Now out of the league three years, and no longer even good enough to be a back up.

First he uses his platform to call for Kaepernick to be fire.

You know, some owner is going to do that. Hes going to say, That guy that disrespects our flag, hes fired. And that owner, they dont know it [but] theyll be the most popular person in this country.

Then he implied that the NFL shouldnt get tax breaks if people like Kaepernick are allowed to play

Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!"

And now we are supposed to believe him that He thinks Kaepernick should get a fair shot? Lol.

I don't entirely agree with this.

Owners run a business. Talent is a variable - but not the only variable.

The way I see it - in the case of CK, he has some talent... but his talent has to overcome the risk of alienating around 50% of the fan base... which hits the owners in the wallet. No owner has chosen to take on that risk at this time.

Gotta remember - the league took a big financial hit with all of that anthem stuff. Rich people usually like to operate with as little risk as possible.

He’s not good enough and he was basically benchable before he started taking a knee.

He was headed the way of Tebow taking a knee and all. Maybe he can play AA baseball too?

He easily is good enuff to be a backup in the NFL. How many chances does a Geno Smith get?

As usual Trump is right: Kaepernick Should Play If He’s Good Enough

You needed Trump to tell you this???????

Oh brother. I don't follow football, or sports in general, and even I could come to this conclusion.

Kap comes with too much baggage. He was only mediocre to start with and his skills declined. He is not worth the trouble or the backlash from fans.
