Colin Kaepernick Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this week, a letter leaked revealing that Colin Kaepernick requested that the New York Jets sign him to their practice squad. But one NFL insider points out why that’s not going to happen.

As league insider Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk points out, there’s just no chance that Kaepernick will ever play in the NFL again, pointing out that he’s been out of the league for too long and the NFL has successfully colluded against him to keep him out.

“It has simply been too long. It has been too long in part because the NFL successfully colluded against and blackballed Kaepernick,” Florio wrote for Pro Football Talk.

“Congratulations, NFL. You won. The effort to keep Kaepernick out lasted long enough that the best argument for not giving him a chance is that it has simply been too long since he played. That’s the end of the story. The NFL wanted him out. The NFL kept him out. And now, it’s far too long for Kaepernick to get back in.”

It’s a brutal truth that Kaepernick should soon accept as he continues to pursue another shot in the NFL, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on social media.

It sounds like the NFL dreams are over for Kaepernick.
