NFL legend Tony Gonzalez doesn’t think Colin Kaepernick will ever play in the league again.

“He’s done. I don’t think he’ll ever get a chance. Never again…I just don’t think he’s good enough for the headache,” Gonzalez told TMZ Sports as he fought back a smile.

This is an obvious statement Gonzalez is making. If there was a team that wanted Kaepernick, they’d already have plans in motion to get him. It’s now in the second half of the NFL season, and he’s still not on a roster.

Don’t hold your breath for that to change anytime soon.

People might try to spin this as something more than just football, but if Kaepernick was good enough to be on a roster then he’d be on a roster. Gonzalez is 100 percent correct.
