Once again, football season is upon us. Hooray! I can take off my blacking armband, signifying my mourning of the end of last
season, as we all gear up for the next.
My New England Patriots reported in yesterday to begin 2017 training camp, as did many other teams, and the Hall of Fame game is now only a week away.
This is time of year when all teams are equal – although some are a lot more equal than others. Every team is undefeated – all the big name free agents have been snapped up, and fans are excited to see what their teams’ new acquisitions are capable of.
However, there is a once-marquee player who is still unemployed. That is of course the former star quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick. The once stud signal-caller who guided his team to the playoffs, and a Superbowl just a few years (okay – it was five), has now become pro football’s number one outcast.
