Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie Calls Colin Kaepernick Disrespectful

It’s seem more and more likely that free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick will in fact stay a free agent.

The Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens remain the only two teams that have expressed any interest in the former San Francisco quarterback.  Both teams obviously elected to head in another direction.

Not many owners have spoken publicly about the Colin Kaepernick situation but Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is not one of them.

He made his feelings towards Kaepernick real clear last week, that there is a slim to no chance the Eagles would be the team that gives Kaepernick an opportunity as he told Philly.com.

“Last week, Lurie made plain his feelings for Kaepernick’s actions and words. So far, no owner has addressed Kaepernick more thoroughly. Lurie spoke for himself only, but he offered a glimpse at why other owners would hire Blaine Gabbert, Josh McCown or Mike Glennon instead of Kaepernick.

Lurie just doesn’t like Kaepernick’s act.

Lurie frowns on anthem protests, but he can stomach them as long as they are part of a larger, pointed strategy to effect change. He isn’t a fan of alienating police and the military, or their supporters, but he’ll risk alienation as long as the offending protests have a specific point, and if the protester is willing to work to fix the problem.

It’s the anthem thing that Lurie can’t get past.

“I don’t think anybody who is protesting the national anthem … is very respectful,” Lurie said. “If that’s all their platform is, is to protest the national anthem, then what’s the proactive nature of it?”

“Anybody who wants to do proactive things, to try to reverse social injustice, I’m all in favor of. It has to be respectful,” Lurie said. “It certainly has to respect the military and the people that serve, the women and men that serve our country, emergency responders, whoever that is.”

“I applaud anybody that can find respectful ways of trying to use their platform in some way to discuss social injustice,” he said.

Jeffrey Lurie does not applaud Colin Kaepernick.”

You would think the Eagles would be the team that wouldn’t mind Kaepernick’s protest for many reasons including the fact that they are the team that gave Michael Vick an oppurtunity after Vick was released from prison for his involvement in the dog fighting scandal.

Also, we all remember Riley Cooper? The wide receiver that remained a member of the Philadelphia Eagles after he spewed racial slurs at a concert.

But nope, the Eagles will not be a team Kaepernick will be playing for even if something does in-fact happen to Carson Wentz.
