Jerry Jones: Kaepernick Workout ‘Wasn’t About Football’
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested Wednesday that former quarterback and notorious anthem protester Colin Kaepernick is not serious about returning to the NFL.
The cop-hating Kaepernick canceled the workout session the NFL had scheduled for him on Saturday and worked out instead at a local high school, reportedly because he rejected the NFL’s requirement that no media be present.
“I think that it’s unfortunate you can’t just zero in on the business at hand and that’s evaluating a player that might or might not help you win football games or move the chains within a football game,” Jones told ESPN. “That situation probably from the get-go had a lot more that wasn’t about football involved in it and consequently we got the result of that dynamic.”
Jones, one of the few NFL owners who staunchly opposed the anthem protest movement Kaepernick spawned in 2016, did not send a Cowboys representative to the school to observe.
