Mike McCarthy Was Not A Fan Of This Question About Colin Kaepernick [Video]

In 2017, you can’t talk about replacement quarterbacks in the NFL without Colin Kaepernick’s name entering the discussion. He might have played his last game in the NFL over a year and a half ago, but he hasn’t strayed far from the headlines since then.

Aaron Rodgers put a serious dent in the Packers playoff hopes this week when he shattered his collarbone, and while the team had a couple of backups ready to step up to the plate, that didn’t stop a reporter from bringing up Kaepernick’s name at a press conference on Monday. Based on his answer, it was clear Packers coach Mike McCarthy is not interested in the former niner.

Here was his full response:

“Did you just listen to that question I just answered? I got three years invested in Brett Hundley. Two years invested in Joe Callahan. The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be. OK? We’re fortunate to have a great quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. We’re committed to the path that we’re on. We need to play better as a football team.”

While Kaepernick might not be the right fit for the Packers, there have been a couple of instances this year where many people thought he should have been given a chance.

Kaepernick recently filed a grievance against NFL owners over accusations of colluding to keep him out of the league, which probably won’t help his chances of getting back into football anytime soon.
