Interesting take by Mike Freeman over at Bleacher Report. He states a veteran player opined that owners’ aversion to Kaepernick is due to his influence and ability to rally players, which may in turn reduce the relative ownership power in negotiations. In other words, making the NFL more like the NBA where players have an enormous amount of influence. Yet ironically where none of them except David West demonstrate during the national anthem. The notion that owners are not signing Kaepernick because they fear his influence on players seems to be a relatively benign issue. Kaepernick was quite silent even when in the NFL, and intended for his protest to be an individual one. Further, after his clear blackball, very few players protested in support of him prior to POTUS’s 22 September 2017 comments; and relatively few protested after that week 3 wave. In other words, I do not think “influence” is their real fear of Kaepernick.
I think they resent his bold stance against racism and exposure of American hypocrisy, the same as the thousands of white people who have engaged in histrionics surrounding refusal to stand for the national anthem or pledge of allegiance.
