In a recent TMZ Sports interview, Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall said that “all” NFL players support Colin Kaepernick.
In a preview of the full interview, TMZ Sports released video that shows Marshall telling of his unequivocal support Kaepernick, and essentially everyone else’s.
Marshall also insisted that Kaepernick is still ready to jump back into the league and will be able to “compete with the best in the world” despite skipping a season of play:
Naturally, Marshall also feels that Kaepernick was blackballed from the league over his political beliefs and not because of his level of play. Marshall reportedly told TMZ that the owners are “afraid to stand up” for Kaepernick.
Marshall concluded his interview saying that “every” player in the NFL supports Kaepernick and wants to see him back in the league.
The full TMZ interview with Marshall is set to air on Fox Sports 1 on March 16.
