So it's not a protest organized by Spike Lee, he's just the hype man? Either way, what a headache. But wait, there's more.

From Christian Datoc at the Daily Caller


Kaepernick allegedly doesn’t want to make “backup money” and specifically instructed his representative team not to sign one contract offered at the league’s minimum rate of $900,000 per year for a seventh-year player.


“Colin thinks he’s fighting a much higher battle than he is,” the source stated. “He views himself as a race messiah.”

Why am I not surprised by this at all? $900,000 definitely isn't a lot for an experienced backup QB, but it doesn't scream "blackball" either. And owners and GM's figure he's not worth a $5 million gamble like a Josh McCown or Brian Hoyer. We know what those guys are about. We don't know what Kaepernick is about or how he'll function in a long season. And we know that all of them, ideally, are backups.

A denial from the Kaepernick camp. But we've been hearing for months he wanted starter money. So who knows what to believe? Again, just like everything else.
