As an avid sports fan, I have been following the career of Colin Kaepernick closely over the years. Ever since his rookie season, I have been in awe of his incredible athleticism and natural talent, and I always believed that he had what it takes to become one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL. Yet, despite all of his accomplishments on the field, Kaepernick has recently faced some major challenges.
Many of his challenges are in his head. From a football standpoint, Kaepernick is a distraction. He can’t get out of his way to progress on the field. Many athletes can balance promoting a good cause while performing on the field. Not Colin Kaepernick; his struggles on the field are due to his distractions.
It is no secret that his foot speed, accuracy as a passer, and overall fitness level have all taken a serious hit in recent years. But perhaps the most troubling fact is that even if he were able to overcome these hurdles and get back into playing shape again, scouts would never be willing to take a chance on him due to his distractive nature. For all intents and purposes, it seems that Kaepernick’s time in the spotlight has come to an end. While he may remain a topic for discussion for some time to come, it is clear that he will never again find success as an elite player in professional football.
Luckily, he has found a way to make more money off the field than on the field.
