Colin Rand Kaepernick (kap-ƏR-nik; born November 3, 1987) is an American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. Kaepernick played college football for the University of Nevada in Reno, where he was named the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Offensive Player of the Year twice and became the only player in NCAA Division I FBS history to amass 10,000 passing yards and 4,000 rushing yards in a career.

    At least the Twins are showing some pride this year

    Between 1997 and 2017, the Twins only had one season where they finished with somewhere between 80 and 89 losses — seasons that would qualify as bad but not awful. From 2011-2014, the Twins were 78-148 from that date until the end of the year, turning seasons that looked headed for mid-80s losses spiraling into awfulness. It stood to reason that this year would follow a similar script given the Twins' history and also given their circumstances, with several key players dealt away by the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline and the disappointment of underachieving lingering in the clubhouse. At the risk of looking to hard for a silver lining in a bad season, though, this should be acknowledged: The Twins should get a little credit for — so far — showing some pride during the dog days.

    Elway's Kaepernick comments could be problematic for NFL

    As the NFL tries to show that the collective shunning of Colin Kaepernick didn't result from collusion, one of the teams at the heart of the before/after anthem protest attitude toward Kaepernick may have made things a bit more difficult. Broncos G.M. John Elway, who recently opened the door to bringing in a backup quarterback from outside the organization, attempted on Thursday to explain his lingering lack of interest in Kaepernick, a player for whom the Broncos tried to trade in 2016. Here's Elway's full quote, from Ian Rapoport of NFL Media: “Colin had his chance here. We offered him a contract. He didn't take it. So, as I said it in my deposition, I don't know if I'll be legally able to

    Broncos won’t consider Colin Kaepernick as backup QB option

    Broncos General Manager John Elway said this week that the team may look outside the organization for a backup quarterback option. If they do, it won’t be Colin Kaepernick. “He had a chance to be here, he passed on it,” Elway said, via Lindsay Jones of USA Today. Elway said on Thursday that he said [more]

    Jalen Ramsey attacks 'trash' NFL QBs but admits Brady 'doesn't suck'

    Jalen Ramsey was picked in the first-round of the 2016 draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jalen Ramsey, a player famed for his trash talking, has given a lengthy deconstruction of NFL quarterbacks, much of it uncomplimentary. The Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback was particularly withering about a player who has yet to appear in a regular-season game, Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.

    Hillary Clinton tells girl who knelt for Pledge of Allegiance to 'keep up the good work'

    Hillary Clinton sings along to the national anthem before the start of a CNN Democratic debate on March 6, 2016, in Flint, Michigan. Hillary Clinton tweeted encouragement on Wednesday to a Maryland sixth-grader who chose to kneel during the Pledge of Allegiance at her middle school.  The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate sent the tweet in response to a video post about Mariana Taylor, 11, who said she was disciplined by her teacher at Catsonville Middle School in Baltimore County, Maryland, after she chose to take a knee in protest during the pledge.  "It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you're 11!" Clinton said. "Keep up the good work Mariana."

    Colin Kaepernick gets vote of confidence from Jaguars star Jalen Ramsey

    Colin Kaepernick hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2016, but it's difficult to argue that Kaepernick doesn't have the talent necessary to make it in the NFL anymore, or that he's being kept out of the league for any reason other than his dedication to social causes. The 30-year-old is only six years removed from a run to the Super Bowl, and he put up decent numbers in his final season despite playing on a horrendous Chip Kelly-led team that went 2-14. According to Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowler Jalen Ramsey – who recently broke down many of the NFL's top QBs in an interview with GQ – Kaepernick is still better than some starters around the league. Ramsey doesn't expect any team to sign
