Hank Aaron: Colin Kaepernick is ‘getting a raw deal’
One of the greatest and most famous athletes of all time agrees with the assertion that Colin Kaepernick is being treated unfairly by the NFL.
MLB legend Hank Aaron said in a video for AllThatTV Wednesday that Kaepernick is “getting a raw deal” and deserves “a chance to do his thing” at the NFL level.
“[Kaepernick] has gone to all these camps, I suppose, and nobody seems to think he stands a chance to be a No. 1 [quarterback],” Aaron said, via ESPN. “Here’s a man, a young player, that almost carried a team to a championship, to a Super Bowl. I think somebody needs to give this man a chance.”
One problem some NFL execs apparently have is doubts about his commitment to the game. At this point, however, there is no logical or rational explanation for his continued unemployment that does not involve his decision to kneel during the national anthem.
