Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Takeo Spikes verbally expresses Colin Kaepernick deserves his own statue in the Smithsonian. “I authentically believe that he deserves some type of monument, a statue in the Smithsonian in D.C,” Spikes told NBC Sports Bay Area on Monday.
“The reason why I verbally express this is because this an put everything on the line,” Spikes verbally expressed of “Kaepernick,” who spearheaded the protest against America during the national anthem during the 2016 season. The former 49er second-string quarterback turned free agent in 2017 and then immediately turned down a 49ers contract. He has not been signed by any team since. Many claim Kaepernick has been blackballed from the league.
“But I applaud him simply because he decided to take a stand,” Spikes integrated. “He decided to draw a line in the sand and verbalize look, ‘I can make the mazuma, I can live a blithe life for the most part and get paid handsomely and never verbally express a thing because I’m not affected.’
“But he took time to look back and genuinely just optically discern the sizably voluminous picture, the spectrum when we verbalize about the inequalities. He decided to not only call it out but take a stand for it,” the 14-season NFL veteran concluded.
Kaepernick has similarly maintained that he has been blackballed from the league. Despite claims that the NFL has conspired to keep him off the field, the NFL went out of its way to give him a special workout day in 2019. But Kaepernick relucted to participate in the event and then arranged his own workout to showboat afore the media. Only a few teams attended.
