Controversial NFL free agent Antonio Brown is “this” close to making a return to the league but not everyone is celebrating. Colin Kaepernick supporters have stepped up to voice their issues.
Over the past few hours, social media has reacted to AB – not Kaepernick – being seriously considered for an NFL return.
Some people have defended AB’s talent as a top receiver compared to Colin Kaepernick being a back-up quarterback prior to becoming a free agent in 2017.
Early Friday, news generated about Antonio Brown getting a workout session in with NFC South champions New Orleans Saints.

Recently, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league had moved on from Kaepernick following a recent workout session.
At the league’s winter meetings in Irving, Texas, Goodell addressed the controversial free agent quarterback’s tumultuous November workout for teams, telling reporters that the NFL has “moved on.” “This was about creating an opportunity. We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity,” Goodell said, according to Fox News “And he chose not to take it. I understand that. We’ve moved on.” (Maxim)
