At a time during the Dallas Cowboys season the position of quarterback was a topic of controversy as many aren’t sure that Dak Prescott is the franchise QB the team needs. In light of these discussions, sports commentator Stephen A. Smith suggested former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to fill the position.
ESPN star Stephen A. Smith suggested the possibility to hire activist Colin Kaepernick as a filler for Cowboy’s lineup. Smith claimed that he does not think that the Cowboys will put up with Kaepernick, but he suggested the idea anyways.
“You know what, this is a different subject for another day maybe. It will never happen, in my opinion … might want to make that call to Colin Kaepernick,” Smith said on “First Take” Monday. “Might want to find out. He ain’t been around but he’s a playmaker with his legs who’s available, you gotta take that into consideration.”
The Cowboys will most likely stick with Dak Prescott as he has led the team for years now and when healthy can be a serious threat to opposing teams defenses. Cooper Rush is the backup quarterback and during the times he has played Rush has managed the game very well against tough opponents.
“But I would think about it, I would say that. But getting back to reality, because I don’t think that’s reality,” he added.
Michael Irvin, the former Cowboys legend and wide receiver slammed Smith’s suggestion of Kaepernick representing his former team.
“Let’s stop with this Colin Kaepernick stuff. Let’s just stop. Colin Kaepernick’s been out of football for what five years now,” Irvin said. “Come on, man. Let’s stop all of a sudden thinking we can go resurrect Colin Kaepernick and he’s going to come and resurrect a football team. I’ll take my chances with Cooper Rush. I will take my chances with Cooper Rush.”
“I saw Cooper Rush win a football game last year. That’s all I’m saying,” he added.
Kaepernick who is a prime example of getting woke, and going broke, hasn’t been part of any team since 2016 ever since he decided to kneel to the national anthem. But instead of tuning down on promoting his radical propaganda, he doubled down on his message and accused NFL owners of collaborating to keep him “out of the league.”
And now, instead of playing for the league, he has started the Know Your Rights camp to “advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.”
Kaepernick has also compared the NFL draft to a slave auction in one of his recent ads, and at the same time, has attempted to get back into the league.
