The Seattle Seahawks are the only team that has hosted Kaepernick since he opted out of his contract with the 49ers and became a free agent.

Then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, front, and safety Eric Reid, back left, kneel during the playing of the national anthem on September 18, 2016 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

"There are a lot of things that need to change, one in specific is police brutality there are people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable", Kaepernick said.

The Public Enemy legend says it's a bunch of crap that Kaep hasn't been signed to a team - claiming his accomplishments on the field speak for themselves.

Would the beleaguered National Football League franchise benefit from such an acquisition given that the program's QB situation is once again in flux, or would the controversy surrounding the ex-QB be too much for the team? Team owner John Mara said the controversy "may have scared some teams away", but there is no organized effort to blackball him.

"We also want to send a clear message to the NFL".

Filmmaker Spike Lee ("Chi-raq") took a break from his New York City sports fandom to promote an August 23 rally at the National Football League's (NFL) Manhattan headquarters. So the civil rights groups are rallying to give Kaepernick "support". "If people feel politically connected to their communities, they should be able to make a statement", said Carmen Perez, who's helping organize the rally.
