Friday, ESPN “First Take” host Stephen A. Smith reacted to Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway’s comments with reporters where he shared he offered activist Colin Kaepernick a quarterback job but was turned down.
“[H]is body language, his demeanor, and to a lesser degree, some of his words were rife with indignation towards Colin Kaepernick,” Smith stated.
He added, “I thought John Elway came across as incredibly smug and dismissive of Colin Kaepernick as somebody who should be grateful receiving anything he received in This NFL career when he clearly earned it.
To see that coming from John Elway, I was incredibly disappointed to see that way.
It had me thinking about collusion and the whole National Anthem protest and all of that stuff instead of Colin Kaepernick the football player who thought that he was good enough to not accept a 42 percent reduction in salary that John Elway had offered him.”
