According to Smokeroom, the former NFL player Ricky Williams thinks Colin Kaepernick should give up playing football. Rather than seek another opportunity to play in the NFL, says Williams, Kaepernick should give up and find something else. 

Williams thinks that Kaepernick shouldn't go into the NFL because the vast majority of NFL fans do not like him anymore. Williams doesn't understand why somebody would desire to go into an arena where they are disliked.

“I’d rather be somewhere I’m celebrated rather than where I’m tolerated. If they don’t want you, go do something else,” said Williams, according to TMZ.

Former quarterback Colin Kaepernick has filed an official grievance under the latest collective bargaining agreement against NFL owners for alleged collusion, according to ABC News

The former quarterback isn't going through the NFL Players Association, but rather hired attorney Mark Geragos, the man who represented several high-profile clients, ranging from singer Michael Jackson to NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield, according to ESPN

The NFL has been criticized for national anthem protests since former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat during a 2016 preseason game. Kaepernick claimed he was protesting racial injustice and police brutality. Trump has long been upset about the NFL protests, believing that they are disrespectful to both the flag and the troops.  

Last month, in an interview with CBS, Kaepernick claimed that he would go anywhere to work out for an NFL team. He claimed that it was fine if that workout was kept private. He also remarked that he was looking for an opportunity to play, and simply wanted to be judged as a football player, and not for his social and political views.

In breaking news, police just closed an investigation into the stabbing of a world-famous athlete.
