Tom Brady Makes Shocking Comment About Colin Kaepernick

Picture this: You have the opportunity to interview one of the greatest professional football players of all time. There are literally dozens of different questions you could throw at him about his career, his team’s prospects for the upcoming season, and how much longer he plans to play. That’s just a small sampling of the possibilities when New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady agrees to be interviewed by you. As the New York Daily News shares, Norah O’Donnell of CBS’s ‘Sunday Morning’ felt her time would be better spent asking him about an unemployed player.

In fairness to O’Donnell, questions about Colin Kaepernick seem to be mandatory these days. Whether that’s a directive from the higher-ups or just a way to make sure the cool kids pay attention to you is unclear, but media types insist that there’s an insatiable appetite for all things related to Kaepernick. In any event, Brady touched on the topic earlier in the week during an appearance on WEEI's "Kirk and Callahan Show” when the hosts asked him if he thought about the fact that Kaepernick remains without a job.

"I mean not this time of year," Brady said, "my attention goes in a lot of places, so not much. I mean I've never really had a conversation with him."

Since he didn’t properly genuflect at the altar of Kaepernick, a bit of a row ensued. O’Donnell was hoping that he would expand on those thoughts to explain if we’d ever see the unemployed signal-caller play again, and he complied.

"I sure hope so. I've always watched him and admired him, the way that he's played. He was a great young quarterback,” Brady replied. "He came to our stadium and beat us and took his team to the Super Bowl in 2012. He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player and he's certainly qualified and I hope he gets a shot."

There you have it. There’s absolutely nothing else to talk about with one of the greats of the game. Now that we got his thoughts on Kaepernick on tape, we can consider it a wrap. That’s all that football fans care about these days anyway, right? They just can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks about Kaepernick, right?

Wrong, as in very. Few tears are being shed for Kaepernick. He had his chance to play in the league, and he felt it was more important to boost his own image. He was close to having another opportunity before the season started, but some inflammatory social media images from his girlfriend that depicted the owner that was about to write him a fat check as a slave trader took care of that.

It remains unclear as to when the media will wake up to that harsh reality. There’s nothing to see here on Kaepernick. He’s not heroic, edgy, or admirable in any way. He’s simply another entitled athlete that blew his opportunity to earn millions of dollars while playing the game he supposedly loves.
