Brady on Kaepernick: 'I hope he gets a shot'

Kaepernick's most recent public act was to defend ESPN personality Jemele Hill, who called President Donald Trump "a white supremacist" on Twitter and was reprimanded by her employer.

It was in an interview clip from Sunday morning's airing of CBS This Morning that Brady voiced that he would actually hope to see Kaepernick take to the field once more. I say this because the NFL Players Association named free agent QB Colin Kaepernick the victor of its Community MVP award for Week 1.

During a meeting with Shaun King, a Black Lives Matter leader and activist, Kaepernick said: "I've never stopped".

Houston Texans defensive end J. J. Watt was awarded the community MVP award last week for his fundraising efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

Per the New York Daily News, Brady had addressed Kaepernick Monday on a Boston radio station, noting his attention is elsewhere at this point in the season, not on Kaepernick nor the national anthem protests.

Coming confirmation from Barcelona, Dembele will miss the Catalans
Barcelona released the following statement: "The player will have surgical treatment by Dr. He is expected to be out for between three-and-a-half months and four months".

Tom Brady says he hopes Colin Kaepernick gets another shot to play in the NFL. "He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player", Brady told O'Donnell. Barring an injury, Kaepernick most likely won't jump right into a starting role this season, so why won't any of them request him? That includes Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks who started his kneeling protest in the preseason.

And, again, no matter what your opinion on the matter is, I think we can all agree that won't help anybody.

Kaepernick came on to lead a team that won just two games last season, both against the Los Angeles Rams.

Brady, 40, added that he doesn't know Kaepernick "very well".
