He’s got some major problems for doing this…
During the funeral of George Floyd, MSNBC host Al Sharpton decided it was a good time to chastise the NFL and told NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to “give Colin Kaepernick a job back.”
Goodell released a statement recently stating that the NFL was “wrong” in not listening to the NFL players who were protesting about police brutality.
Goodell said, “We, the National Football League condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier, and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League believe black lives matter.”

Sharpton decided to bring up the apology while at George Floyd’s funeral and said, “It’s nice to see some people change their minds. The head of the NFL said, ‘Yeah, maybe we was wrong. Football players, maybe they did have the right to peacefully protest.’ Well, don’t apologize! Give Colin Kaepernick a job back!”
The one fact Sharpton seemed to have forgotten was that the NFL did try to give Kaepernick another chance. Kaepernick decided that it was all a hoax, and minutes before an official workout, he bailed and decided to hold his own workout.
