(FOX NEWS) – Controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick deserves a chance to continue his NFL career, his supporters said Saturday.
Those backers include the NAACP and current and former members of the New York City Police Department, including famed corruption fighter Frank Serpico.
Kaepernick has been struggling to find a new team since opting out of his contract after last season.
His backers say NFL team owners have blackballed Kaepernick because he staged a one-man protest last season on behalf of African-Americans and other minorities – by kneeling instead of standing for the national anthem before each week’s game.
