Colin Kaepernick

It’s apparently too soon for a documentary on former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose silent protest against police treatment of Black Americans — kneeling during the national anthem — apparently cost him a promising career. He’s only 32, and his story is still being written. Though he hasn’t had an NFL contract in three seasons, his name still comes up when QB vacancies open in the league.

The man who originated the now-widely adopted form of protest recently announced a memoir in the works, to be published by his own company, signed a first-look deal with Disney, and is working with Ava DuVernay on a Netflix documentary series, “Colin in Black and White.” In the meantime, if you want to read more about him and you’re curious why he’s out of the league when a poll of current NFL players found that 95% of them believe he still belongs, a number of football analysts have destroyed the claim that he’s simply not good enough for an NFL job.
