The Cincinnati Bengals’ season got off to a disastrous start with the team’s loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday 13-9. With the defeat, a rumor involving former quarterback and free agent Colin Kaepernick surfaced on at least one football website.
Apparently some Bengals players want the team to consider signing Kaepernick. Kaepernick has remained unsigned and critics and supporters alike believe it’s because of his silent protests as a San Francisco 49er over the police shootings of unarmed black men. Kaepernick spent most of the season kneeling during the national anthem, but there’s no hard evidence that he remained unsigned because of the protest.
With plenty of Bengals thinking Andy Dalton is on a short leash, Colin Kaepernick's name emerges in the locker room https://t.co/2dyQnO6vH7
