Colin Kaepernick flushed his NFL career down the toilet after he decided to start protesting the National Anthem during games last season. Fans were furious and unsurprisingly, his refusal to stand and show respect for his country, cost him his job. The San Francisco 49ers cut him, no other team has picked him up and now, things are not looking good.
Kaepernick bought a massive mansion in the San Francisco Bay area after signing with the 49ers, but now, that house has been put up for sale. He’s listed the house for $2.9 million after buying it for $2.7 million, but he also spent a fortune renovating the mansion.
Now, months after the NFL season ended, Kaepernick still finds himself without a job. There seemingly is no team that wants him and it’s not hard to see why: he was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league last season and he comes with an insane amount of baggage. So, what is he spending his retirement doing? Trying to help parolees make a better life for themselves.

Colin Kaepernick donates custom-made suits outside a New York City parole office ???????? Via usatoday.com: The start of the NFL season is about three months away and free agent Colin Kaepernick is still on the market. While he waits to see if he’ll get signed, Kaepernick is keeping up with his commitment to help empower communities in need. About two days ago, Kaepernick stopped outside of a New York City parole office and donated two large boxes of his custom made suits. The donation benefits 100 Suits, an organization that provides free business attire to men and women who are in the job search process. The Instagram account for 100 Suits posted that the quarterback was at parole office in Queens. That’s love!!!! When you have Superbowl quarter back Colin Kaepernick and HOT 97 host Nessa personally drop off over two huge uhaul boxes of custom made suits at our office @ Queens parole. 100 Suits hopes to reduce recidivism rates by helping people find more gainful employment. By being able to wear appropriate suits to their interviews, these men and women are better equipped to achieve gainful employment, which will ultimately help them to transition into mainstream society and live more productive lives. Through this program, we also provide free hair cuts for men and wig referrals for women, where needed. Because it’s never easy to find a suit that fits perfectly off the rack, 100 Suits also provides an in-house tailor that will make any alterations needed for clients. Remind me again why Kaepernick doesn’t have an NFL contract yet?
Reaction on Twitter was mixed. Some praised what Kaepernick did; others saw it as a publicity stunt.
Joe Mixon punched a woman in the face, still got drafted.
Kaepernick exercised his right to protest, still unsigned. https://t.co/eFdtg7zoEA

Caitlyn Jenner is not a hero.
Colin Kaepernick is not a hero.
They just wanted 15 min of fame. #ESPN sucks anyways.

Getting pretty tired of this Kaepernick character actively trying to better the world. Just complain about stuff on twitter like us!

ESPN would rather have Jemele Hill talk about Colin Kaepernick and BLM than have actually intelligent people talk about sports.

If you're upset about Milo, Coulter, Cernovich et al. and didnt say a word in support of Kaepernick, it's not free speech you're defending.

It’s hard to say whether this is a legitimate act of charity from Kaepernick, or if he’s just trying to rehab his image in a desperate attempt to get signed.
In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in number 85 of the book that you are not a victim.
Whatever happens with Kaepernick’s career, he needs to remember that. He’s not a victim here; he chose his own fate.
