The irony of Robert Kraft visiting Meek Mill in prison

  • As long as Kraft and other NFL owners continue blackballing players like Kaepernick -- who missed all of last season and has yet to be signed by a team despite being more talented and accomplished than many quarterbacks who are collecting NFL checks -- Kraft's trek to that Pennsylvania prison won't mean much.
  • After President Donald Trump called protesting NFL players a vulgar name, Kraft, who was recently deposed in Kaepernick's grievance case, said he supported the players' "right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful" -- words that ring hollower by the day.
