The end is near in the three-year-old saga of Colin Kaepernick and the NFL, and it’s about time.
After Kaepernick attends a bizarre combine-style workout today in Atlanta in front of representatives from many NFL teams, he will either sign with a team, sooner or later, or he won’t. He’ll either still be unemployed, or he’ll finally have a job.
Since he hasn’t taken one snap in the league in almost three years, this either/or option is real progress.
After days, weeks and months of controversy and uncertainty, an overwhelming national cultural controversy that has consumed one quarterback, the president of the United States and our most popular sports league has a chance to have a happy ending.
