“Everyone has their own way”: When Cowboys COO Stephen Jones refused to support Roger Goodell’s stance on Colin Kaepernick

Here's what Stephen Jones had to say about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's take on Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick and Roger Goodell

Colin Rand Kaepernick has made a name for himself at the highest level. Currently a civil rights activist, Colin played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL. Back in 2016, Colin was all over the news when he took a knee during the national anthem at the start of the games.

He was traded from the Denver Broncos to the 49ers back in 2011. In 2016, it felt like Colin’s NFL career ended. However, it seems like the man still has a lot of football left in him. Not long ago, Kaepernick was seen working out with all his might with the aim of making it back in the NFL.

Kaepernick got a lot of praise for his actions from several top celebs. In fact, Kobe Bryant had once claimed that Colin did what he should have done in the first place. Moreover, a while ago, during an episode of “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had stated that he should have given more attention to the issue Kaepernick was trying to address.

However, Cowboys COO Stephen Jones had a different opinion on the situation. His thought process did not align with that of Goodell. “I’m not going to comment on that at this point. Obviously, everybody, I have respect for what everybody has to say about any of these situations. Everybody has their own way of getting their hands around it,” he had told Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan.

It’s obviously a big challenge. As I said, every organization, every office, every place looks at it a little differently, including whether you’re the NFL or you’re an individual club. Everybody has their views on different things. So, certainly, I have respect for everybody’s opinions and views, but probably as far as I’d go with that,” he further claimed.

Although Kaepernick has been trying extremely hard to come back, it seems unlikely that he’ll get a chance at the highest level.
