Michael Vick Says Colin Kaepernick's Performance Is Why He Isn't on NFL Roster
Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick dismissed the notion Colin Kaepernick's social activism has played a role in his inability to sign with a team this offseason.

"It has nothing to do with him being blackballed," Vick said on FS1's The Herd (via Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith). "The gesture that he made last year when he took the stand to do what he did, listen, we all appreciated it, we respected it, and it was a good thing. I really think the stand that he took has nothing to do with him not having a job playing in the National Football League right now."

Vick also made the case that NFL teams may be hesitating to sign Kaepernick because he wouldn't be a fit in a pro-style offense that requires more of a pocket passer: "Any other type of offense I don't think will help him right now because it's going to take him so long to adjust and learn the system, protections, blitzes, what to look for, receivers, that type of camaraderie doesn’t happen overnight."
