On his appearance on the ‘This is 50’ podcast, AB talked about Kaepernick and said, “Colin Kaepernick is not AB. Colin Kaepernick not even from the hood, he is not even from Liberty City.  So I don’t even wanna mention his name in anything like this.

AB further explained how Colin has been treated quite well by the NFL. He said, “He’s been treated good, He got Netflix documentary, don’t get it twisted. See that’s the wrong thing about the world, We think aww Kapernick is treated so bad, they don’t let him play football. Yea they ain’t let him play football, they gave him the commercials, they gave him money.” 

Antonio Brown’s words about Kaepernick might certainly have some weightage. However, it seems that Kaepernick would have preferred a return to the NFL instead of all the things that AB mentioned in the podcast.
