Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown shared some of his feelings about the rumors surrounding Colin Kaepernick NFL return. Both Brown and Kaepernick have been facing similar struggles in getting an opportunity to play in the NFL. The comments from the former Buccaneers wideout seem to be more from the frustration of his struggle in finding a way back to playing football.

In a teaser trailer of his upcoming exclusive interview with TV host June Archer, Brown was discussing Kaepernick and his return plans.

During the short trailer, AB states, “Colin Kaepernick is not from the hood. He is not even from the receiving department… I don’t even want to mention his name. What is Colin Kaepernick doing? Where’s he at right now?… I’m on the streets outside every day!… Yeah, they let him play football and let him get commercials.

While the context of his comments remains unknown, AB appears to be not pleased with Kaepernick and his attempts to succeed. He believes he is getting handed all the spotlight and not earning his dues. While his comments seem rash, it will be an interview for NFL fans to tune in and listen to.

Will Antonio Brown and Colin Kaepernick successfully make an NFL comeback?

The offseason has been a long game of waiting period for both players in their pursuit to play in the league. While Brown was part of the league till his infamous walk-off incident in 2021, Kaepernick last played in the league in 2016. There remains a tremendous interest in Kaepernick’s services, while Brown’s reliability issues make his case for a return difficult.
