Richard Sherman slams Redskins for not calling on Colin Kaepernick

Richard Sherman slams Redskins for not calling on Colin Kaepernick

"Unfortunately there has, to this point, been nothing that the courts or the league has done about it and that's the disappointing part, because these good football players didn't commit a crime, he didn't put his hands on anybody, murder anybody, you know, do anything that's that insanely crazy that he deserves to be banned from our football league".

Kaepernick has been out of the league since 2016, presumably due to his polarizing kneel-down during the National Anthem in preseason two years ago. Some low hanging fruit, so that was an easy reach for you. I'm just kidding! C'mon, you can give it to me I can give it right back, c'mon now. Thick skin in here!

"Who cares? It's one play and you move on. I prefer to remember the good stuff". "We had a couple other guys come in today and then it's just going to be a matter of which way we want to go".

Gruden, who said that the decision to not bring Kaepernick in for a workout was made for football reasons only, said Kaepernick had been "discussed, for sure", but that his skill set didn't match what they needed in a quarterback being picked up five days before the team's next game. Sanchez completed 13 of 21 passes for 100 yards and led a field goal drive to close the second quarter.

Even some Republicans balk at spending more than the $1.6 billion for fencing and other security improvements already provided. McConnell told reporters in Louisville on Saturday it's up to Trump "to do a deal with the Democrats".


"In my mind, he shouldn't let that (2012 play for the Jets) define him", said Giants coach Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator for Sanchez when both were with the Eagles in 2014-15. Getting him more involved against the Giants could be a safe way to get some production in the passing game.

Redskins starter Alex Smith broke his leg two weeks ago. And he has thrown for more interceptions (87) than TDs (86) in the NFL. "But he's a veteran guy and I think he'll do the best he can".

Notes: CB Quinton Dunbar, WR Trey Quinn, G Jonathan Cooper went on injured reserve, and the Redskins signed QB Josh Johnson, G Zac Kerin, C Demetrius Rhaney and DE Marcus Smith. He's hoping to give the 2018 Redskins team a similar end of season run, starting with practice this week.
