Slate shames NFL coaches for having no good excuse for not signing Colin Kaepernick yet

In case anyone had thought the Colin Kaepernick kerfuffle had blown over, Nike reignited it in a big way in September by making Kaepernick the face of its, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything” campaign, which instantly launched a million memes.

Slate thinks that’s a problem, as NFL coaches have given no good reason not to sign Kaepernick.

That’s funny, because it only took Twitter users a matter of seconds to come up with reasons not to sign Kaepernick.

Slate doesn’t have to explain its hiring decisions to anyone.
