Former Chief RB Larry Johnson slams Colin Kaepernick calling him a sell-out

Is Colin Kaepernick a sell-out? One former NFL player feels Colin Kaepernick sold out when he had the NFL on the ropes. He feels like he allowed NFL to get out of the mess, What do you think?

Colin Kaepernick won today according to most media outlets, but one former NFL player was pissed that Kaepernick and the NFL reached an agreement. Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson went to TMZ Sports to smash Kaepernick.

“If your backdrop is going to be the African American civil rights presence that it brought from the ’60s and you’re going to use that for your own causes, you don’t sell out. “

He added, “You don’t turn your message into a Nike hoodie.”

Johnson says Kaepernick KNEW he had the NFL on the ropes but he “gave them a way out.”

“Now I don’t know what activist … Martin Luther King or Malcolm X … I don’t know what civil rights leader that you even saw or follow that made you even think that selling out to your oppressor or signing a deal with your oppressor was the way to go.”


I am not sure I agree with this but these are really strong words from the former Kansas City Chiefs running back.
