Transcript for Rally at NFL headquarters to support Colin Kaepernick
Latest on Colin Kaepernick. The NFL free agent who stirred up controversy when he went down on one knee during the national anthem still hasn't been signed by a team and there are rallies to support his stand. Ryan Smith with the story. Good morning, George. You know, you talk about this but less than two weeks before the NFL regular season kicks off protesters are going to gather at the NFL's doorstep rallying for Colin Kaepernick, the former star quarterback, some believe has been sidelined for his beliefs. Will he show poise in the pocket? Reporter: This morning the quarterback who led the San Francisco 49ers to a super bowl four years ago can't find an NFL team. 19 teams across the country have signed new quarterbacks in the off-season. Many pointing to Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem last year and his vocal stance against racial injustice as the primary reasons he is unemployed. A lot of things you can look at and say this is a guy at the least deselves an invite to a camp to see if he has anything yet. Reporter: The quarterback speaking out about his stance last October. It was something that was really just a personal decision where, you know, I didn't agree with what was going on. Reporter: And already this preseason several players following suit including these 12 Cleveland browns players, black and white kneeling for a prayer during the national anthem on Monday. Making the catch is Seth devalve. Reporter: Seth devalve the first white player to take a knee says he thought of his family. I myself will be raising children that don't look like me. I want to do my part as well to raise them in a better environment than we have right now. Reporter: Back in June, commissioner Roger Goodell shooting down claims that Kaepernick is being blackballed by the league. Obviously, you know, everyone's aware of the his protests last year and that's something that individual clubs will need to either weigh or not weigh. Reporter: Later today at the league's New York City headquarters, there will be a gathering to support the quarterback. Now, the protest today put together by over two dozen activists and organizations here and among Kaepernick's backers spike Lee who tweeted his support earlier this month for, quote, Kaepernick and his stance on the injustices in the usa. He does have a lot of supporters but it's not a slam dunk he would get picked up as a free agent even if this weren't around. You talk about quarterbacks and a lot is fit so teams put a variety things into it. To put it in perspective two guys have been signed this off-season who didn't throw an NFL snap. Didn't take a snap, didn't throw a pass so Kaepernick had a pretty solid year. I think if he's not signed this preseason it might take an injury or something like that to a quarterback on a big team for him to get a position. We'll have to wait and see. We will be watching. Thanks very much.
