6. Personality Problems
The reality of the situation is that a lot of Kaepernick’s teammates at the San Francisco 49ers actually didn’t like him. He wasn’t very popular in the changing room because he was aloof and withdrawn. Major NFL figures like Tom Brady have spoken out in support of the quarterback, but the lack of support from his former team members is conspicuous.
If Kaepernick genuinely wants to play again, then he has to resolve his own personal issues. Sure, he’s an incredibly influential figure today, but if nobody actually cares whether he’s there or not, then it’s just not going to work out. In short, he needs to warm up and be more of a team player.
