Former Packer legend Brett Favre has officially joined the woke olympics! During a recent interview with TMZ, he said that Colin Kaepernick’s decision to toss his NFL career in order to protest is comparable to former NFL player and Army Ranger Pat Tillman.
He added that Kaepernick will likely be thought of as a "hero" in the future.
“It’s not easy for a guy his age — black or white, Hispanic, whatever — to stop something that you’ve always dreamed of doing, and put it on hold, maybe forever, for something that you believe in,” Favre said.
“I can only think of right off the top of my head, Pat Tillman is another guy that did something similar,” he continued. “And, we regard him as a hero. So, I’d assume that hero status will be stamped with Kaepernick as well.”
Tillman was an NFL player who walked away from a multi-million dollar contract with the St.Louis Rams to join the Army Rangers. Unfortunately, he was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.
Colin Kaepernick turned down an offer with the 49ers in 2016 to become a free agent. However, the 49ers are standing by their statement that he would have been cut at the end of the season regardless. I doubt Kaepernick realized that would be the end of his football career at the time, or he likely wouldn't have done it.
I do not see how Kaepernick's bratty, disrespectful attitude could be even remotely close to a man who ultimately gave his life for our country.
“I thought he was a dynamic player when he was playing in his prime,” Favre added. “He’s still young and hasn’t been hit in several years, so there’s no reason to think that he’s lost that much of a step.”
