Mike Vick suggests Colin Kaepernick should cut his hair

Mike Vick suggests Colin Kaepernick should cut his hair”

Michael Vick knows a thing or two about an incident off of the field affecting your ability to find work on it, so it makes sense that he would chime in on the Colin Kaepernick situation.

While it may be impossible to say Kaepernick's protest has nothing to do with him being unsigned, the fact that he's no longer considered a starting National Football League quarterback plays a pivotal role.

Kaepernick often sported an Afro last season while he protested police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem.

Now, his social activism is being blamed for his inability to sign with a team. After being asked about Colin Kaepernick, Vick first said that Kaepernick's protests were "a good thing", and then expressed his opinion on Kaepernick this year.

"It has nothing to do with him being blackballed", Vick said. The gesture he made a year ago when he took a stand and did what he did, listen, we all appreciated it.

Vick also thinks Kaepernick should rehabilitate his image, similar to the way he did after his dog-fighting conviction. "I'm not up here to try to be politically correct but even if he puts it in cornrows, I don't think he should represent himself in that way, in terms of the hairstyle". Unless you talk to Colin personally, you probably won't know. "You're already dealing with a lot - a lot of controversy surrounding this issue". According to Vick, the free agent quarterback should "try to be presentable", even if that means simply wearing his hair more tightly to his head. "I think, in terms of him getting back on the field, it's going to have to be a team that suits his skill set and what he does well".

"We aren't supposed to be judged by the color of our skin or our haircuts, we are supposed to be judged by our actions", Littal wrote.

The simple truth is that teams don't think he's a slam dunk starter, and whether you think it is a concerted effort or teams arriving at the same place, don't want a backup who gets the attention and will create the divisiveness that Kaepernick will bring. It wasn't as productive as what we've seen him do.

He said he would give Kaepernick this same advice if he was talking directly with him. Until I was going through the turmoil and the hardships, and it was very hard, and then I started to see what was most important.
