ESPN Radio host attacks Jets owner for avoiding a free agent Dan Leberfeld

An ESPN Radio host feels the owners of the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are cowards.

Dan Le Batard ripped into teams that he feels need a quarterback, but won’t sign free agent Colin Kaepernick.

“You have six teams that could use him, and all of them pass because their executives are afraid of what comes with him,” Le Batard said on Wednesday. “The Jets owner is a coward. The Jets owner is a coward. The Tampa owner is also a coward. Going with Ryan Fitzpatrick as the backup (in Tampa Bay). Coward. Ryan Fitzpatrick. What? There are a hand full of teams and the cowardice turns into blackballing. Colin Kaepernick has brought this issue to their doorstep and they are all afraid of it.

“I think what’s happening here is his value is not worth what [owners] believe to be the headache and everyone’s afraid of the headache, and that is cowardice.”

While with the San Francisco 49ers last season, Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem causing a stir.
