Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, shut out of the NFL for years after kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality, would be welcomed with “open arms” by the owner of the Las Vegas Raiders, reports Huffington Post.
“I believe in Colin Kaepernick,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said on NBC Sports during an episode of “Race in America: A Candid Conversation.” He “deserves every chance in the world to become a quarterback” in the NFL, Davis added.
Kaepernick has “sacrificed a lot of the things that he could have been doing in his life to get a message across about police violence and equity and inclusion in America,” Davis said. ”I stand by that.”
He added: “If our coaches and general manager want to bring him in or want him to be the quarterback on this team, I would welcome him with open arms.”
