Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of racist policing, and his entire career got destroyed. There are still a lot of people who insist that the reason Kaepernick isn’t on the field is that he’s been out of the game too long, not because the NFL is afraid of its racist fan base.
That argument was blown up On Monday when it was announced that Tim Tebow got signed back on to the NFL with the Jaguars, according to ESPN.
Tebow is the new tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars, though he’s never played the position in his career. He also hasn’t played for the league since 2012. Seems suspicious that this guy could get another go and Kaepernick can’t find a place on a team.
The tweets started rolling in, pointing out the hypocrisy of the situation, making it clear that no one is buying that Tebow is ready to play and Kaepernick isn’t:

And he probably agrees, considering he retweeted this:
Still would be nice to see him get the money he deserves.
