Apparently Colin Kaepernick is retired. That is according to his official player profile on the NFL’s website.
Colin Kaepernick’s partner, Nessa Diab, noticed the change and has come out swinging against the NFL, Roger Goodell, and the NFLPA.
Diab blasted the entities calling them ‘cowards’ for lying about Kaepernick’s status within the NFL.
The @NFL @nflcommish @NFLPA lying on their NFL website claiming @Kaepernick7 “retired.” Colin did NOT retire. You cowards blackballed him bc he peacefully protested against police brutality. He’s a Superbowl QB & should be playing bc his stats show that. https://t.co/UmyD5VhYwP pic.twitter.com/eUJ7LMmaiR

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016 after he peacefully protested racial injustice, social inequality, and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.
He has attempted to return to the NFL to no avail even after he held a highly publicized workout for NFL teams.
Diab further criticizes the league for blackballing Kaepernick while adding he should be currently playing in the NFL.
Kaepernick led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013.
(Update: The NFL has since changed the designation on its official website).
