Seattle Seahawks' Doug Baldwin expressed his opinion on the matter to ESPN saying, “the situation last year [had] . . . anything to do with” Kaepernick’s continued unemployment.''
Baldwin has, however, changed his mind after watching teams in desperate need of a backup quarterback but not hiring Kaepernick who helped his team ( San Fransisco 49ers) to Super Bowl. Baldwin changed his previous statement and said:
“After viewing what’s going on, I’ve got to take that back. I definitely think that the league, the owners are trying to send a message of, ‘Stay in between the lines.’”
Many other players and pundits also share the same opinion as Baldwin i.e Kaepernick is being punished for his activism.
