During a recent press conference, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell spoke about the Kaepernick situation and how he feels about the whole thing.
Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick will still be headed to the 2020 Pro Bowl in Orlando as one of four Legends captains, and that is despite the overwhelming number of people who have demanded for the league to remove him. It was a unique opportunity-an incredible opportunity and he chose not to take it.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has weighed in on the peculiar and ongoing saga of Colin Kaepernick's quest to return to the league. "He's worked aggressively with the Humane Society and other institutions to deal with animal rights and to make sure people don't make the same mistake he made, and I admire that", Goodell said, noting the 18-month sentence Vick served in prison for operating the ring, known as the "Bad Newz Kennels".
Kaepernick bought in on the event, even though his team continued to haggle with the league over details such as the openness of the workout and a waiver for his participation.
Colin Kaepernick #7 of the San Francisco 49ers kneels for the National Anthem before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on October 23, 2016. The move took both teams and Kaepernick himself by surprise, and the league gave him only two days to decide whether to participate.
"I don't know where we'll be". Stop running from the truth.
Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game following the 2013 regular season, has long stated that he has stayed in shape and is capable of rejoining the league if a team agrees to sign him.
Following the workout, the former 49ers quarterback urged the NFL to "stop running" and insisted he was ready to play anywhere in the league.
"They [have] still not completed the investigation", Goodell told reporters at the December ownership meeting.
