“What’s stopping Colin Kaepernick from being in the league?” Owens said to TMZ Sports. “Owners, general managers, it’s all about an opportunity. Same thing with Colin. You trying to tell me that he can’t play in the league right now?

My local NFL team the Seattle Seahawks — who I no longer support —were involved with both Terrell Owens and Colin Kaepernick. Owens was with the Seahawks through the entire 2012 pre-season before being cut and the team was very interested in making Kaepernick the backup for Russell Wilson this season.

Terrrell Owens was washed up, too old, even in 2012.

The Seahawks had serious talks with Kaepernick in spite of the kneeling controversy. Pete Carroll didn’t care at all about the kneeling. The Seahawks really, truly wanted him, but they would only offer backup QB money, albeit it would have been the top salary for a backup In the league. Kaepernick, who previously had a huge starter salary, wanted starter money.

It was Colin Kaepernick who turned the Seahawks down.

Owens is probably not being blackballed. He’s just old for the game.

Warren Moon said the same stuff about black quarterbacks not getting a fair sake. This was BEFORE and AFTER he beat his wife. Why the media gives them the time of day is a mystery. Maybe they really do believe them. Unless of course they are disturbers of the excrement.

No. You’re a lousy player in the same league as KaperKnee and cause nothing but turmoil in the locker room. Plus you’re overage (44).

“What’s stopping Colin Kaepernick from being in the league?”

The desire of each team—and the NFL as a whole—to make money and turn a profit...

“He’s just old for the game.” AND He’s had and has a BIG mouth and a BAD attitude! TO tell us why you walked off the field before the game was over! TO -— stay off the field!

Terrell, just sit back on the porch like an old retired whore and reminisce about the old days when you were somebody!

He might be broke. Squandered all his money on drugs, women and ‘close friends’ — like so many who suddenly become rich. I hope he at least bought his mother and father (if one) a nice home for the undoubtable sacrifices they made for him.

At 44 your body says “Nope! Can’t do that again”

You ain’t being black balled.

Are you and I the same person? I wrote what you did on so many different forums, excepting the thing about TO who was old in 2012 as you said. I too no longer support the Seahawks, or any team in the NFL. They removed the veneer of “The Game”, I speak of Seattle and the entire NFL. It is impossible to be the same ba^^s to the walls supporter that I once was for 40 years of the Hawks existence, and really was since the 1950’s.

“He added, “It’s politics.”

Yep, it really does come down to that. Unfortunately the politics of most NFL fans don’t regard those who support cop killers very highly. You players had 3 choices: You could continue to at least appear non-political, and we would have been fine with that. You could have overtly supported cops, the military, and the United States, and we would have been thrilled with that. Or you could have been anti-American.

You guys chose the last option, and we simply don’t support that.
