Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is one of only three black head coaches in the NFL. His voice carries a lot of weight, and Lynn decided to put out more than just a statement regarding the protests taking place around the country.
The head coach's thoughts were featured in the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, and Lynn did not hold back at all. He even shared some strong words on Colin Kaepernick and why the quarterback should be in the league right now.
Kaepernick was seemingly blackballed by the NFL after his peaceful protests against police brutality back in 2016. He has not been back in the league since, and his only shot came in a sham tryout held by the NFL. Kaepernick not even being considered for backup roles is insane, and Lynn is well aware of that. The head coach also shared that he took part in recent protests.
Lynn is a part of the far-too-small fraternity of black coaches in the NFL. Him bringing up Kaepernick's name once again should have other coaches wondering if they are indeed part of the problem, with regard to the quarterback never getting another shot.
