  • NFL Manager: 70 Percent of Teams 'Genuinely Hate' Free-Agent Kaepernick

Hollywood director Spike Lee claims there are "shenanigans" afoot regarding the free agency of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"They won't move on", the manager added.

Kaepernick has played six seasons in the National Football League and made headlines past year for not standing for the USA national anthem.

Movie director Spike Lee made that connection in an Instagram post after having brunch with Kaepernick in NY, saying it "Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens". His caption read in part: "How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF".

In fact, Kaepernick doesn't seem to be drawing any interest, despite having four playoff victories and a Super Bowl appearance on his resume.

"They think showing no interest is a form of punishment", the manager said.

The other teams aren't interested either. The counterpoint to this would be that Kaepernick made a decision to opt out of a deal he already had in place with the 49ers. Playing for the 49ers at the time, Kaepernick launched a movement of protesting the national anthem for what he saw as the alleged oppression of minorities in the U.S.

"(Kaepernick) was, in everyone's mind in this league, very close to signing a deal with a team at a really good number and it fell through, apparently", Lynch said.

Kaepernick, who plans to stand for the anthem in 2017, was close to landing on a new team, Lynch said.

But unlike other players, Kaepernick is viewed through the skeptical lens of "KneelGate", and the activism of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has drawn the ire of a significant chunk of USA patriots and an even larger portion of National Football League fans.

There have been many quarterbacks signed this offseason, and not all of them were particularly good on the field previous year.

"I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did", an unnamed GM added.
