Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith still doesn’t understand why Colin Kaepernick doesn’t have a job in the NFL.
Smith became friends with the former 49ers quarterback when the two were teammates in San Francisco. During an appearance on the “10 Questions With Kyle Brandt” podcast, he admitted that he’s still perplexed by Kaepernick’s situation.
“It still doesn’t make sense,” Smith said. “The run that he went on, at the end of that last year that we were together [in 2012] and went to the Super Bowl … was so crazy to watch. Truly one of the historic runs in football to see what he was doing.
“It’s crazy to fast forward only a couple years after that and he was out of the league. It’s hard to — you couldn’t even grasp it. Couldn’t understand it. You couldn’t.”
