NFL commissioner Roger Goodell just keeps on surprising us.
During a recent discussion Mike Greenberg for ESPN’s The Return of Sports special, Goodell said it’s up to teams to decide if they want to sign the 32-year-old quarterback and that he “supports and encourages” the idea.
“Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it’s going to take a team to make that decision.
Goodell even praised Kaepernick and other athletes for raising awareness on issues like racism and injustice.
Goodell made it clear that he has seen the light after putting out a video apologizing for getting it wrong with it came to the kneeling protest.
