As you are probably aware, the cop-hating, Castro-loving quarterback has not been signed by an NFL team. The liberal media likes to pretend that he's not signed because the NFL is racist and is blackballing him. Let's not forget about the fact that Kaepernick actually opted out of his contract for the 2017 season. Despite all of his transgressions, the Ravens were going to sign anti-America Colin Kaepernick until his girlfriend sent this racist tweet.

Per Daily Wire:
"We were going to close the deal to sign him," Lewis said on Tuesday's Inside the NFL. "Steve Bisciotti said, 'I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.'"
"And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day," added the former NFL star.
"[Kaepernick's] girl goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn't know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed," Lewis explained. "Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'"
When asked if Kaepernick would have been signed if Diab hadn't sent the racist tweet, Lewis replied:
"Then he's flying him to Baltimore. ... I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in."
In other words, it was Kaepernick's girlfriend's racism that lost him a job opportunity, not the "racist" NFL.
Two days before Diab sent out the racist meme, Lewis posted an emotional video on Twitter telling Kaepernick that he respects him and prays for him often.
"I wish you the best in life; I hope you chase whatever God got for you to chase. And once again, I applaud what you stood up for," said Lewis.
"And if people really wanna help you, if they really wanna help you, man, they'll pray for you, brother," he said. "They will lead you the right way and stop encouraging you to be caught up in some of this nonsense."
People can spin the story how they want, but it's pretty simple why Colin Kaepernick is not in the NFL. Even LeSean McCoy pointed out that the risk is simply not worth the reward. He is going to bring loads of chaos wherever he goes and he is not good enough of a quarterback to warrant that. It's that simple.
