Does the NFL owe Colin Kaepernick an apology?

After NFL players took part in a Black Lives Matter video, the league itself released a statement in support of the BLM movement. However, many feel the message isn't sincere until the NFL apologizes to Colin Kapernick and the way he was treated. Others feel the league has no reason to apologize. What do you think? 🏈

When Colin Kaepernick kneeled, he shouldered the anger and vitriol of millions across the country. What did the NFL do? Absolutely nothing.

The league didn't support him in even a written statement. It may have even colluded to keep him out of the league. Then when the NFL gave him a workout, it was a disaster filled with red tape and mistrust. What was the league afraid of with something so mundane?

The NFL might say they support Black Lives Matter, but they can't even treat this one person with dignity and respect. Unless the league shows that with its actions, its support won't mean anything.

The NFL needs to apologize. It's the least the organization can do.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with The Ringer's Tyler Tynes to breakdown whether black quarterbacks are treated fairly in the NFL.

Colin Kaepernick is an adult whose actions resulted in adult consequences. The NFL isn't responsible for the responses to his kneeling, so why should they apologize for it?

It's fine that he protested, but to expect an apology is absurd. It was never proved that the league colluded against him and he was given some opportunities to come back, but chose not to. The NFL supports Black Lives Matter and is donating $250 million to fight social injustice. That's a big step in the right direction.

The league doesn't owe Kaepernick an apology.
