Aaron Rodgers says Colin Kaepernick should be on a roster

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers thinks that former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has enough talent to make it on an National Football League roster.

In a story for ESPN Magazine, Rodgers told Mina Kimes that it would be "ignorant" to think that Kaepernick's protests are not the reason he's still a free agent. "I think because of his protests, he's not". Rodgers, who will be 37 when the dress shoes hit the conference room floor, seems eminently qualified to become a force in those negotiations if he chooses to do so, and the players can use all the smart reps they can get. He's 10 times better than Kaepernick.

While other white superstars like Tom Brady seem to avoid the topic or talk around it, Rodgers minces no words. "He's a good dude and I love talking to him and my reaction to it was "Congratulations" and I hope every quarterback that comes [up for a contract] beats me, beats him, and I just hope that they all just continue to do that". I think we live in a wonderful country. "I think that's part of social responsibility, and everybody is going to do that in their own way".

Seoul Urges Pyongyang to Avoid 'Provocations' Amid US-South Korea Drills
The U.S. military officials later traveled to the site of a contentious U.S. missile-defense system in South Korea later Tuesday. Beijing has pleaded for a resumption of long-dormant six-nation talks to peacefully resolve the nuclear crisis.

Rodgers said the issue is something the U.S. "They have a battle for racial equality". This will change exactly zero minds, of course, because among other things, what could Aaron Rodgers possibly know about quarterbacking (I mean, other than almost everything)? What it is to be pulled over, or profiled, or any number of issues that have happened, that Colin was referencing - or any of my teammates have talked to me about. Rodgers, however, defined Kaepernick's protests as being "peaceful and respectful".

To that, Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb credits Rodgers for being a "sponge" and listening to his black teammates.

"But I know it's a real thing my black teammates have to deal with", Rodgers said.
