Kordell Stewart repeats Ray Lewis’ advice to Colin Kaepernick

Former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart offered Colin Kaepernick similar advice Ray Lewis did a day earlier: Keep quiet about social activism.

“Right now he’s not giving himself a chance,” Stewart said, via NFL No Huddle on TuneIn with Brian Webber. “I don’t think it’s the owners; I think it’s more or less Colin Kaepernick in my mind. Stay off of social media, and when it comes to the political side of everything, you can express yourself, you can do it quietly. I mean people are looking for former athletes and athletes out there doing some things that can be headline news. Do it from a charitable standpoint. Stay low-key about it. You don’t have to be so [loud], especially in this world of politics in the game of football.

“You see what’s taking place with him right now. He’s not even getting a chance to play and he’s better than 90 percent plus of the backups playing in the National Football League, let alone some starters that are playing right now.”

The Ravens still are deciding whether to sign Kapernick, having consulted with Lewis among others. Lewis posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday, giving Kapernick advice.

“The football field is our sanctuary,” Lewis said. “If you do nothing else, young man, get back on the football field and let your play speak for itself. And what you do off the field, don’t let too many people know, because they gonna judge you anyway, no matter what you do, no matter if it’s good or bad.”

At the moment, Kapernick doesn’t have a choice whether to get back on the football field as no one has been willing to sign him.

  1. “And what you do off the field, don’t let too many people know, because they gonna judge you anyway, no matter what you do, no matter if it’s good or bad.”

    Especially when its bad. At the Super Bowl. In Atlanta.

    The NFL are hypocrites ! Blackball Kap but Hank Williams jr. Racist self is ok.
    ______
    Press mute for the first couple minutes like the rest of us.

  3. Kap is only part of the problem. The threats being made to demonstrate against the NFL if he is not hired create guilt by association with an element that the owners do not want involved. And if the threats are actualized, he’s finished.

  4. The NFL are hypocrites ! Blackball Kap but Hank Williams jr. Racist self is ok.

    Williams big sin was comparing Obama to Hitler. If we start blackballing every celebrity who compares presidents to Hitler we may not have anyone left.

    Just like when the Dixie Chicks spoke out against Bush.. lots of backlash. If three white women can’t pump their political agenda, then nobody is safe!

  6. why is this a story. kaep made his decision. now live with it. he chose social issues over qb’ing an nfl team. pretty simple.

    oh wait…i forgot…being a social activist pays a little less than nfl qb…

  7. Why is this even news anymore? If you protest in front of a business and then you go inside and apply for a job at that business, don’t be suprised if you don’t get hired. It may not seem fair to you, but that private business owner can hire whoever he wants. Cry all you want…that’s life and the owner did nothing wrong little snowflakes.

  8. So now we’ve heard from practically ever player, columnist, politicians, and average Joe about why Kaepernick doesn’t have a job. This only person we haven’t heard from is Kaepernick himself. That speaks volumes to me.

  9. Kaep’s best possible scenario would have been for him to be the back up to Alex Smith again.. Think about it:

    1. He was drafted as a back up to Smith
    2. KC is not exactly enamored with the QB situation (Drafting Mahomes 1st round)
    3. Andy Reid takes chances on polarizing/controversial QBs

    The Chiefs resemble much of what the niners were when Smith and Kaep had their stints there.. Solid defense with an ok offense. Not world beaters, but will definitely put up a good fight. Kaepernick would have to accept the fact that he is a career backup. Nothing to be ashamed of, and many of those guys get paid fat for holding a clipboard. Not to mention, there are several coaches that were once backup QBs. There’s always that to fall back on when the career is over.

    Quick! Somebody get me his agent on the phone.. I don’t think anyone thought this through

  10. The majority of those still attacking this young man (he’s much younger than Kushner and Donnie Jr whom the press have accepted as good boys and quality young men) have never sacrificed for their country or anything else.

  11. Hank Williams Junior’s sole idiotic comment got him a 5+ year ban from ESPN.

    Take Kaep’s four comments or actions on Castro, Pig Socks, Voting, and anti-America and 20 years sounds about right.

    Remember talented Greg Hardy? The Cowboys let him back in the NFL but his stupid mouth got him permanently removed with zero need for collusion.

  12. Kap is a backup at best, as he can run, but can not make a lot of the required passes. I can never understand why some people who come into the spot light because they can Act or music, or sports think that their opinion on anything now is more valuable. It is not and 50% of the people will be on the other side. Kap took a stand against his own Nation and lost 95% of support. Stupid is, stupid does.
