Congressman Demands Patriots Sign Colin Kaepernick

A sitting United States congressman is now demanding that a team in the NFL sign former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick has been out of the league since 2016, following a decision to protest the National Anthem over racial injustice in America.

Despite multiple attempts at reentering the NFL, Kaepernick has not been able to find a place in the league.

This past week, U.S. congressman Rep. Joe Kennedy III out of Massachusetts called for the New England Patriots to sign Kaepernick.

“The NFL should apologize to Colin Kaepernick and the Patriots should sign him,” he wrote.

Prior to this year, Tom Brady served as the Patriots’ quarterback for two decades. This past offseason, he opted to leave and join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Presently, the Patriots have Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer listed as their two primary quarterbacks.

It remains to be seen if the organization will opt to sign any additional quarterbacks in the foreseeable future.

  1. Who the hell is a congressman or anyone to demand that a business hire someone that is not needed, this Congressman sounds like he’s threatening the Patriots in so many words, Mr congressman you know what you can do with your demands right…

    1. I agree 100%. This guy is one of the idiots we have up there who is just a parasite off of the American taxpayer. He should be recalled with no benefits at all and done so immediately!!!!!!!!
