Colin Kaepernick deserves NFL roster spot, according to 95 percent of players in recent poll
In a poll conducted by The Athletic over the past six weeks, 95 percent of defensive players interviewed said they believe Colin Kaepernick should be on an NFL roster.
Kaepernick, who was the first player to kneel during the national anthem as a means of protesting police brutality and racial inequality, last played in the NFL during the 2016 season. He filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners in Oct. 2017.
Eighty-five defensive players anonymously participated in The Athletic's survey, according to the web site, of which 81 said Kaepernick deserves a roster spot. Two players voted "no" to that question, and two more declined to comment, according to The Athletic.
