NFL executives have revealed they hate Colin Kaepernick and believe he is a traitor, a reports suggests.
Officials from seven team front offices across the league have said they do not want anything to do with the quarterback after his national anthem protest last week.
Most of them also believe he will shortly be released by the San Francisco 49ers, and won’t play professionally again.
One told Bleacher Report: ‘I don’t want him anywhere near my team. He’s a traitor.’
Another reportedly said: ‘He has no respect for our country. F*** that guy.’
None of them revealed their names to the website, but all are believed to hold senior positions in various NFL franchises.
People close to Kaepernick have also said he is aware his football career is in jeopardy.
Sources have said that if he was released, he would dedicate his career to social activism.
Kaepernick did not stand up for the anthem last week and explained to reporters that he was sending a message that is bigger than football, because he won’t ‘show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people.’
One even said the divisive player was more disliked than Rae Carruth, the former Carolina Panther who is sitting in jail after plotting to murder his girlfriend.
The latest comments came as protests gathered outside the San Francisco Police Association offices in support of Kaepernick.
They held banners reading ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Stand With Kaepernick’.
Kaepernick has insisted he will continue to sit during the national anthem – despite the backlash he has received for his actions.
