It's no secret that Colin Kaepernick still doesn't have a job in the NFL. Some would say that it has a lot to do with his protests during the National Anthem, while others would suggest it has to do with his inconsistent playing on the field. But if you ask Michael Vick, he'd suggest that it has to do with Colin Kaepernick's hair and image.
Vick shared his thoughts on what it would take to get Kaepernick back in the NFL in an interview with Speak For Yourself.
"First thing we’ve got to get Colin to do is cut his hair. Listen, I’m not up here to try to be politically correct, but even if he puts cornrows in there, I don’t think he should represent himself in that way in terms of—just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut. You know, why not? You’re already dealing with a lot of controversy surrounding this issue. The most important thing that he needs to do is just try to be presentable. All the social media stuff he’s doing—we get it, we understand it. It’s time for Colin to step up in a different way."
Vick adds,"It's time for Kaepernick to step up in a different way."
