Whatever slim chances remained for Colin Kaepernick to catch on with a new NFL team just evaporated after the former San Francisco 49er unleashed an ugly cop-hating, racist tweet on Friday.
The NFL’s most toxic player’s career was already hanging by a thread after he chose to put himself before his teammates and employers by staging protests against the national anthem last season, trashing the cops and praising Fidel Castro before a game in Miami.
While teams have spent nearly the entire offseason filling their open quarterback positions with the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, Geno Smith, Blaine Gabbert and Austin Davis, Kaepernick has been left untouched.
This has triggered accusations of racism and blackballing from the usual grievance mongers although the failure to mention another unemployed QB in Robert Griffin III – who is also black – is a testament to their hypocrisy and ignorance.
Now it appears that Kaepernick has personally yanked the flush chain on his own career when he weighed in on the acquittal of the police officer who shot black motorist Philando Castile during a traffic stop in 2016 and it was ugly.
According to the NFL’s most visible militant, the police are now the equivalent of runaway slave catchers. This is a heck of an escalation on his infamous pig socks attire and marks the point of no return for Kaepernick who just crossed the Rubicon.
There is just no way to downplay the offensive and racist nature of this tweet, it is exactly who this guy is and it only puts an exclamation point upon why every NFL team with a quarterback opening has avoided him like the Ebola virus.

In terms of career suicide, Kaepernick has been playing a game of Russian roulette ever since last July and on Friday he finally pulled the trigger on a loaded chamber.
It was already hard to see the divisive malcontent latching on with any team for 2017 but the lobbying has been fierce and there was always the possibility of a devastating preseason injury to a starter that would open the door for him.
He just nailed that door shut.
After his latest trashing of the cops and the racist connotations of the tweet, this guy won’t be able to get an NFL job sweeping up the stadium benches after games although he will now be elevated to official martyrdom with the lunatic left.
