Broncos LB Brandon Marshall has been a huge supporter of Colin Kaepernick.
Marshall and Kaepernick have known each other for years. They were college teammates at Nevada, and they are fraternity brothers as well.
Marshall, who took a knee during the national anthem last season, was disappointed in Michael Vick’s comments about Kaepernick’s hair.
Marshall told TMZ Sports his reaction to VIck’s comments:
“The black community, we grew up loving Michael Vick. He was transcendent to the quarterback position. How he ran with the ball. He was just this hot, dynamic player. And off the field, he was this hip-hop guy as well. If you didn’t like sports, you would see Mike Vick. If you did like sports, and if you did like hip-hop, you would see how he kind of crossed over. And it was amazing. I’m like ‘yo this dude is it.’ For him to say all that, and I understand he went through what he went through, but he should never have thought that way. Those words should have never came out of his mouth from a black man to another black man, it was just crazy,” said Marshall.
I believe Vick was coming from a good place. All Vick was trying to do was help Kaepernick. Unfortunately, Kap’s hair has nothing to do with him securing a spot on a NFL roster.
