NFL Commissioner Declares NFL Has 'Moved On' From Kaepernick's Antics

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters the NFL has "moved on" from former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Irving, TX – National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league has “moved on” from controversial former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Goodell made his comments on Dec. 11, weeks after the NFL planned a high-profile workout for Kaepernick to try and get back into the league, according to CNN.

"This was about creating an opportunity," Goodell said, according to CBS News. "We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, an incredible opportunity and he chose not to take it. I understand that. And we've moved on here."

Kaepernick changed the venue of the planned workout at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility to a high school football field about 60 miles away without giving the NFL scouts attending much notice.

CBS News reported that Kaepernick told the league about the venue change just 30 minutes before it was to start.

Kaepernick and his agent, Jeff Nalley, claimed the move was made to increase transparency and make sure nobody edited film from the workout, CBS News reported.

However, scouts and coaches may have interpreted the shift as just another diva-esque move by the controversial, high-maintenance former football star.

Former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan explained to ESPN why teams are reluctant to sign the former San Francisco quarterback who was the first to kneel on the field for the National Anthem, claiming he did so to protest police brutality.

"As a coach, you don't want the circus in your locker room," Ryan said. "But I'm sorry, but that's what it is. Is it gonna be worth all the extra media? You're gonna have a backup quarterback having press conferences and all those types of things. And part of being a backup is accepting your role. You push the starter but you accept the role as a backup."

Ironically, while Kaepernick generated no interest from the teams that attended his workout, one of the wide receivers he threw a 50-yard pass to that day caught the eye of several scouts, USA Today reported.

The Washington Redskins signed Jordan Veasy to their practice squad on Dec. 5 after that catch was captured on video and went viral.

"It helped," Veasy told The Washington Post. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of it. Just being a part of the history of it, and I knew it was going to help me."

Kaepernick, who turned 32 in November, hasn’t played in the NFL since he left the San Francisco 49ers after the 2016 season.

He had a 3-16 record as a starting quarterback in his final two years with the team.

Kaepernick is a social justice loser for the left and has no interest in actually playing football since he's really not that talented but he's capitalized on the mainstream media (fake news) agenda and jumped on the hate everything and I'm a victim mentally.

He's trying to stay relevant and by putting himself in the spotlight for another 15 mins he's sold more sneakers and merchandise to the snowflakes and SJW of the braindead millennial generation. Their total and complete indoctrination by the left has continued to shift with the feminist who believe in their victim mentally and hate the government and law enforcement. The very people who protect them whenever tragedy strikes or when they are in trouble they have no hesitation to dial 911 and ask for help. Only when things are safe and comfortable do they go back to their narcissist personality disorder.

Let's face it, bottom line is he's a spotlight seeker, who wants to go down in history as the "poor, pity me" guy! He was not raised as an African American, but raised by a fairly wealthy white family. He has no reason to start all his shit other than he's a publicity seeker who wants fame and fortune in the end. You know what I say to him, go away, be gone, find somewhere else to start trouble, we don't want or need you.

You are doing nothing but causing race problems and you know it! GO AWAY! Take your personality, character, and desire for fame and go to Iceland, Greenland, or Antarctica. See how long other countries put up with your antics!

Man oh man I can't wait to cop my Air Force One X Colin Kapernick sneakers. Oh wait, my point. The NFL should be able to conduct their business without divisive politics and social issues. Perhaps they should leave the "Nationalist" Anthem out and instead bring in the pledge of allegiance. I haven't stood for the "Nationalist" Anthem in 15 years, ever since I learned the true lyrics and the politics and beliefs of the man who wrote it. The anthem is bad business and a relic of a horrible and divisive past, and that's where the anthem should stay. I wish success and good luck to Colin Kapernick, The NFL and Nike. God bless America.

I will believe it when I see it, that kid and several like him cost the league a lot of patronage and money. I know many who say they will not go back simply because of lack of trust. Seems to me it has turned more and more into the National Felon League with all those being arrested.

I moved on from the NFL since those antics. Just the way the commissioner words it, makes it seem the "NFL" is run by the players, not the owners. Tail wagging the dog STILL!

Who is he to tell the NFL where they will be meeting? I sincerely feel sorry for his folks. They adopted him, raised him and now have an embarrassment for a son. Sorry folks..You deserve better than that.

Every time I see that logo, it is an immediate, total turn off. And I question in my mind, what makes the person wearing it, want to? Since there are soooo many other, BETTER sports apparel to wear. If a team uses them to sponsor them, I think twice about that team & the people in charge, that want to use that disgraceful company. That’s what KrapperDick’s antics did for me. I didn’t have much Nike in my wardrobe, as I much prefer the higher classed & quality, in every way, New Balance. However, what I had, I TRASHED. I wouldn’t even donate it. Didn’t want anyone else wearing it. They are a pathetic JOKE. Just like KrapperDick.
Glad he’ll never play the game for $ again. He can remain N’s little pansy boi. He’ll be on both knees when he’s facing his Creator. And trembling like a little scared girl.

I've been telling this joke for years: The only way in hell I'm going to pay for tickets to an NFL game is if they let me take a sniper rifle into the stands. I have a true deep hatred for those arrogant abusive thankless bastards.

So glad they've moved on from the Krappernic issue! Now if they could just re visit their idea of honoring Michael Vick, convicted dog killer, fighter, and abuser as a captain of the all star game.

Colon? Pretty certain I just dumped mine in the Kraepernick. 'Nuff said...back to My Little Pony and other things that matter, like life. No professional "sports" (aka overpaid prima donnas) for me, or corporations for that matter.

We'll eventually read about Kaeperdick in the obituaries being dead from an overdose. That's how all the washed up groid blackball players go.

He has doubled-down so many times and gone all in... The fact that Nike bankrolls his escapades is a testament to corporate indifference to the difference between good and bad press... Its not enough to be competent any more. If he was doing to be hired, SF would have done it.
