Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon Thinks NFL Owners Won’t Let Colin Kaepernick Back in The League
Colin Kaepernick teased his long-awaited return to the NFL by posting videos of himself training with Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett earlier this week.
Hall of Famer Warren Moon isn't sold on Kaepernick's return to the NFL despite the 34-year-old being in great shape. The former Houston Oilers quarterback told TMZ Sports that he doubts NFL owners are ready to give Kaepernick a second chance.
“I just don’t know if he’s going to get that opportunity,” Moon said. “I just don’t think the NFL wants that subject back into the league.”
Moon added, “Just thinking off the top of my head, those owners, they have a very close-knit unit and once they make their minds up that they don’t want to do something, it doesn’t happen.”
Kaepernick, who was released by the San Francisco 49ers one year after protesting racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, hasn't given up on his dream of playing again. His training session with Lockett was actually a result of another tweet, in which he wrote that for “the past 5 years I’ve been working out and staying ready in case an opportunity to play presented itself,” before asking if he could join a workout.
“I’m really grateful to my trainer, who I’ve been throwing to all this time,” he wrote. “But man, do I miss throwing to professional route runners. Who’s working?? I will pull up.”
