Spike Lee Is Holding Rally For Kaepernick

08 Aug, 2017

Film director Spike Lee announced Tuesday that he will hold a rally in support of free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick at NFL headquarters in New York City on Aug. 23.

Kaepernick remains unsigned, which has led to plenty of debate about whether his decision to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and police brutality last season has contributed to his inability to catch on with a team.

Interest in Kaepernick since the end of the 2016 season has been tepid thus far.

The Seattle Seahawks brought him in for a visit before opting not to sign him, while the Baltimore Ravens recently toyed with bringing him on board.

Kaepernick, 29, went just 1-10 as a starter for the San Francisco 49ers last season, but his statistical production was strong.

The veteran threw for 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions while rushing for 468 yards and two more touchdowns.

Kaepernick also has six career playoff starts to his credit, including a Super Bowl appearance.
