NFL Legend Jim Brown On Kaepernick: 'I Don't Desecrate My Flag'

While it's easy to debate between Kaepernick's national anthem protest last season and his declining play over the last few years, the reality for each NFL team not signing this player is likely unique.

ORCHARD PARK, NY- Bills running back LeSean McCoy has never been afraid to speak his mind. "The black guy standing up for what he believes in so, the NFL's against him, but I think it's more than that". That may have something to do with it.

"And we also want to make sure that the National Football League as a whole does not use collusion to coerce players to do stuff that's not aboveboard". Even teams with significant quarterback (starter or backup) questions like the Ravens, Dolphins, Colts and Jaguars haven't offered a deal to a once-dynamic player. "I think his situation is not good enough to have him on the team with all the attention that comes along with it". I think the situation is not good enough to have him on the team with all the attention that comes along with it.

Women's March organizer Tamika Mallory, addressing football fans, said, "I don't care how long you've been watching football, if they don't stand up for your children, turn the damn TV off".

The NFL can count the NAACP among the civil rights groups eager to formally meet with it as soon as possible to discuss the Colin Kaepernick situation. The 29-year-old running back said Kaepernick isn't that good of a quarterback for an National Football League team to willingly take on the "distraction" that comes with his protest. Speaking to reporters recently, he stated that if he was a team general manager or an owner, he is not going to give Kaepernick a contract and deal with all the controversies. Several speakers at Wednesday's United We Stand Rally for Colin Kaepernick hammered those points in railing against the NFL for, in their opinion, preventing Kaepernick from working despite the fact he violated no laws with his protest that also complied with league rules.

McCoy said players like Tom Brady or Odell Beckham Jr. would be worth that type of distraction. This is about the distractions that McCoy experienced when the Eagles brought Mike Vick to Philadelphia after two years in custody for dogfighting. You'll deal with that attention the media aspect of it, the good and the bad attention to it, compared to Kaepernick. The idea is to get people to think, not to drive a wedge even deeper, because what you're doing is perceived as an insult to something that many have sacrificed their lives in order for us to enjoy these freedoms. But also, dealing with him on the team you're trying to build together. "I can see both sides, I really can". You take a guy like Michael Vick who went through what he went through.
