You may indeed ask “Why, pray tell, would a free agent social justice wannabe quarterback find it difficult to secure a lucrative appointment within a professional sports enterprise that is actively seeking the type of talented personnel that said quarterback once typified within his repertoire of skill sets?”
The answer is not difficult to find. The owners and managers of the aforementioned sports enterprises don’t trust him, don’t like him.
“He can still play at a high level,” an anonymous AFC general manager told Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman. “The problem is three things are happening with him.
“First, some teams genuinely believe that he can’t play. They think he’s shot. I’d put that number around 20 percent.
“Second, some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. They think there might be protests or (President) Trump will tweet about the team. I’d say that number is around 10 percent. Then there’s another 10 percent that has a mix of those feelings.
“Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him.”
