Giants owner John Mara deserves credit for one thing: He’s the first NFL owner to admit what we’ve long suspected; Colin Kaepernick’s unemployment really has little to do with his qualifications and almost everything to do with his politics.
“All my years being in the league, I never received more emotional mail from people than I did about that issue,” Mara told the MMQB. “If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game. It wasn’t one or two letters. It was a lot…
“It’s an emotional, emotional issue for a lot of people, moreso than any other issue I’ve run into,”
Several notable NFL personalities immediately pointed out Mara’s blatant hypocrisy. Remember, the Giants signed K Josh Brown to a contract last offseason after being made aware of domestic abuse claims made by his wife. After backlash, New York cut Brown during the 2016 season.
