(Slay News) – Colin Kaepernick has caved and admitted that he’s now desperate to return to the NFL, despite previously likening the league to “slavery.”
In October, Kaepernick compared the NFL’s draft process to a slave auction.
He made the comparison in a Netflix special, depicting black “athletes” in shackles and their white “owners” whipping them.
However, just a few months later, he now says he would consider playing as a backup quarterback, just to get back into the NFL.
Kaepernick caved during a new interview with Adam “Pacman” Jones and Brandon Marshall for an episode of “I Am Athlete.”
Kaepernick said he would set aside his demands and join a team in a secondary role as long as the coach names him the starter when he proves he’s the better quarterback.
“I know I have to find my way back in,” Kaepernick said.
“So, if I have to come in as a backup, that’s fine.
“But that’s not where I’m staying,” he continued.
“And when I prove that I’m a starter, I want to be able to step on the field as such.
“I just need that opportunity to walk through the door,” he said.
