Eric Dickerson had some strange comments about Tim Tebow’s return to the NFL.
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve seen a ton of news about Tebow imminently joining the Jaguars, and people are constantly comparing his situation to Colin Kaepernick being out of the league. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
People Are Upset Tim Tebow Is Back In The NFL Instead Of Colin Kaepernick https://t.co/PfT1kjSJQY

What does the legendary running back think? He told TMZ that it’s “bullshit,” and then things really went off the rails.
He claimed that the NFL, which is about 70% black, treats black players differently than white players.
This is honestly sad and very disappointing. I respect Eric Dickerson and I think he’s a smart guy. Well, I used to respect Eric Dickerson and I used to think he was incredibly intelligent.
It’s “bullsh*t” that Tim Tebow switched positions and the college coach he won national titles with wants him to help build a culture?
That sounds like great leadership, and Tebow’s deal is only for one year!
The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.

Furthermore, I’d love to know how a league that is majority black treats black men differently or in the wrong fashion.
Last time I checked, the four highest paid players in the league at the most important position – quarterback – are all black.
For a league that supposedly isn’t nice to black men, they’re damn sure doing a poor job at being racist. This is the same junk that The Undefeated tried to push prior to the draft.

Just stop with this nonsense. The NFL has turned thousands of men into millionaires. The idea the NFL is out to get black men is simply false.
