Free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown shared his thoughts about former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick during a discussion on "Cigar Talk." He called Kaepernick trash and said he didn't think the former 49er wanted to play in the NFL.
Brown also had some criticism about Kaepernick's lack of helping in the community since he reached a settlement with the NFL back in 2019. On that point former NFL star Pacman Jones agrees with Brown.
From TMZ Sports:
"As far as the community part, I think AB is right," Jones said. "We haven't heard anything that Kaep did for the community or given back to the community after the settlement."
You'll recall, Brown wondered out loud in a conversation with "Cigar Talk" about Kaepernick's foundation and its results ... saying, "I'm being real. What superhero he enforce? Who he put on? Who he help?"
Jones is clearly wondering the same thing ... telling us straight-up, "That part of the question, I do think AB is right."
It seems like the support for Kaepernick among players isn't as universal as it appears. Should Kaepernick be refused a roster spot for protesting? Absolutely not.
But maybe he isn't as good as people say when they watch him throw to receivers without a defense. And maybe, I'm not saying it but Brown and Pacman appear to be, that he isn't doing as much community outreach as he claims.
