The debate of Colin Kaepernick reached Buffalo today as Bills running back LeSean McCoy dropped his opinion on why the former 49ers quarterback is a free agent.
McCoy, seems to believe that he knows why Kaepernick isn’t on an NFL roster right now and shockingly it has nothing to do with his National Anthem protest.
It’s best he’s not very good at football:
“That may have something to do with but I think it also has a lot to do with his play,” . “I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. Then it’s the chaos that comes with it. It’s a lot. A team’s trying to win and not have a distraction on a team. As a player, there’s certain players that can be on a team with big distractions, and other players, they’re not good enough that it’s worth it. I think his situation is, not good enough to have on a team with all the attention that comes along with it. I’m sure if a guy like [Tom] Brady or a guy like — whoever is your favorite player, Odell Beckham or a guy like that — you’ll deal with that attention and play him. With certain guys, it’s not worth it.”
He then went on to compare his former Eagles teammate Michael Vick to the free agent QB.
“Take a guy like Michael Vick who went through all that he went through. He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick. So you’ll deal with that situation. You’ll deal with that attention, the media aspect of it, the good the bad attention to it compared to Kaepernick, he’s really not that good of a player to deal with.”
Colin Kaepernick remains a free agent as an NFL team juggle between Blake Bortles and Chad Henne but yes, LeSean, carry on.
