Last year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines when he refused to stand during the national anthem before his games. After months of this race-baiting nonsense and an abysmal season of playing, Kaepernick found himself being let go from the team. Since then, Kaepernick has desperately tried to find another team that would sign him, going so far as to promise to stand for the national anthem.
Recently, rumors have been swirling that the Denver Broncos were considering signing Kaepernick. However, Broncos manager John Elway took to Twitter to shoot these rumors down, which must have come as devastating news to Kaepernick.
“Rumor of us being interested in anyone other than the QBs we have is another example of irresponsible, fake news!!” Elway wrote, according to Broncos Wire.

This tweet somehow triggered liberals, some of whom accused Elway of being a Trump supporter, as if that is the worst thing in the world.
Really, John? You look like a damn fool using Trump rhetoric. Be a leader.

You wanna know how to lose me as a lifelong Bronco fan and season ticket holder? Start mixing politics with sports and I’m out Mr. Elway.

Did you just go full Trump? I’ll drop this franchise after 34 years if you start mixing politics in with football. Dems are fans too.

This comes after The Daily Caller reported that Kaepernick has turned down at least one contract in the hopes of stirring up a media frenzy that would eventually lead to a more lucrative deal for the 27-year-old vet. He reportedly does not want to make “backup money” and specifically instructed his representatives not to sign one contract offered at the league’s minimum rate of $900,000 per year for a seventh-year player.
“Colin thinks he’s fighting a much higher battle than he is,” the source stated. “He views himself as a race messiah.”
