Shady McCoy: Kaepernick Not Worth Distraction

Supporters of Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand for the national anthem to protest police brutality against blacks, showed their solidarity at a rally outside the NFL’s headquarters Wednesday. Some still think he’s not worth standing up for. “It’s a lot more than just he’s not on the team because he doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem,” McCoy said Thursday. “That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. That chaos that comes along with it, it’s a lot.” Props to McCoy for speaking his mind. Kaepernick is a good quarterback, at times great, but if he was really that good, he’d be playing right now. Watch Shady speak his voice below.-TO
