Steelers WR: Kaepernick ‘deserves an opportunity’

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is the latest to speak out on the what’s been taking so long for much-maligned former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to land with a team.

The latest Kaepernick news had him possibly landing with the Ravens, but that apparently fell through. As the season starts this week, one can only wonder if Colin will indeed be a man with a team.

“Well I think most importantly when it comes to somebody like Colin Kaepernick I think that he’s a good player,” Heyward-Bey said, via PennLive.com. “I think that he deserves an opportunity to still be in this league, to be in a team.”

“I mean those are realities. People view, when it comes especially to politics, they view things differently. And you got to think about — you got to know the pulse of your team,” He added.

“You got to know the pulse of your fan base.”
