A number of people on social media have called for the San Francisco 49ers to release quarterback Colin Kaepernick over his refusal to stand for the National Anthem last Friday – and his promise to continue sitting out the anthem as the season begins.
I seriously hope the NFL’s 49ers fire Kaepernick. He’s simply NOT good for football. #BoycottKaepernick

But according to Fox Sports analyst Jay Glazer, that may not be an issue much longer:
“Regardless of politics or not, he has a very, very big uphill battle to make this team. I’d be shocked if he’s on the 49ers by the time this season ends.
It has nothing to do with political views whatsoever. He lost a ton of weight this off-season, had three surgeries, couldn’t work out, lost that double threat, that size-speed ratio.
Nothing to do with political views, he just hasn’t been effective. He’s regressing as a player.
I’d be shocked if he’s on this roster by the end of this year. He may not be on it in the next two weeks.”
Kaepernick has an $11.9 million guaranteed salary for this season, which would normally keep the team from cutting him. However, if the 49ers release him in time for another team to sign him, that would be reduced by the amount of his new salary.
And according to The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre, it may be a bit of a trick to convince the public that Kaepernick is being let go “for football reasons”: “They’ll say it was about football, nothing else. And nobody will believe them.”
