In a recent interview, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Brett Favre says that Colin Kaepernick is a hero . . . just like Pat Tillman.
Pat Tillman, a former Arizona Cardinals defender, was killed after leaving football to join the Army Rangers following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Tillman played four seasons in the NFL before leaving for Afghanistan.
Kaepernick was in his sixth season with the 49ers in 2016 when he began kneeling during the national anthem. Kaepernick was in his sixth season with the 49ers in 2016 when he began kneeling during the national anthem.
Here's a quote from Favre in the interview: "Pat Tillman is another guy who did something similar. And we regard him as a hero. So, I’d assume that hero status will be stamped with Kaepernick, as well."
Do you agree with Favre? Does Kaepernick deserve to be compared to Tillman?
