It’s been several years since Colin Kaepernick played in the NFL, but that has certainly not stopped those who still hope to see him back on the field one day – and that now includes the owner of one of the top teams in the league. Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis recently stated that he would not only love having Colin Kaepernick to be part of the team, but that he “deserves” it.
@Deadline reports while being interviewed Earlier this week by NBC Sports, Raiders owner Mark Davis had extremely kind words and high praise for Colin Kaepernick – while sounding hopeful that one day he would dress in the team’s black and silver colors. “I believe in Colin Kaepernick. He deserves every chance in the world to become a quarterback in the National Football League. I still stand by that. If our coaches and general manager want to bring him in or want him to be the quarterback on this team , I will welcome him with open arms, ”he said.
However, he did not finish talking about Kaepernick, adding that he is “misunderstood”:
‘I think Colin is a very misunderstood human being. I’ve had a chance to talk to him. I never really knew Colin, and I did not understand him. I did not understand the kneeling, what it meant in the beginning. Over time, I learned a little more about it. I understand [now] where he came from. He has a message for society as a whole. ”
Mark Davis ended his remarks by saying, “Colin Kaepernick has sacrificed a lot of the things he could have done in his life to get a message across about police violence and justice and inclusion in America. I stand by that.”
You may remember that Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016 when he decided to take a knee during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality.
