NFL legend Warren Sapp compared disgruntled Colin Kaepernick to ‘trash’ over report his agent contacted New York Jets after Aaron Rodgers’ season-ending injury.
Kaepernick, desperate to return to the NFL, hoped the Jets would sign him as a backup quarterback.
The Jets refused the requestdespite this
“When you’re trash, you don’t put it on someone’s door and ring the doorbell and expect them to come out and be like, well, what is this trash.
“If you’re a commodity, NFL teams would pick up the phone and call.
“When I was a free agent, Al Davis picked up the phone to call Rosenhaus.
“That’s what happens when someone thinks you can play in this league, call your rep.”
The Jets told Kaepernick to go to the sand and they won’t sign him.
NFL pundit Jordan Schultz said:
“I just spoke with Colin Kaepernick, who told me his agent has contacted the Jets about his desire to return to the NFL.”
“Kaepernick continues to work on the West Coast,” Schultz wrote.
Josina Anderson, a CBS Sports reporter broke the bad news to former NFL star Colin Kaepernick.
“The #Jets are not pursuing Colin Kaepernick to address their immediate need for QB depth.
“They told me they’re going to at least look at narrowing down their options today.
“The mindset right now* is to bring in a QB that fits Zach Wilson’s chemistry as a man, and knows the system and/or personnel.”

Kaepernick, one of the biggest sports headliners of the 2010s, has been out of football since 2016.
That year, he began kneeling during pregame performances of the national anthem to protest police brutality and racism in the United States.
The protests set off a chain of events that culminated in Kaepernick filing a grievance against the NFL and eventually settling with the NFL for collusion to keep him unsigned.
On the field, the former Nevada star threw for 72 touchdowns against 30 interceptions in his six-year tenure in San Francisco, helping the 49ers reach Super Bowl XLVII.
