TEHRAN—Colin Kaepernick sent his workout video to Iran after learning they may have recently opened up a position but has yet to receive a phone call.
Kaepernick condemned American attacks on Iranian terrorists last week, inciting rumors that he may have found a team interested in him in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. But Iranian officials have dispelled the rumors, stating clearly and unequivocally that “we have no interest in signing Kaepernick at this time, but we wish him well in his future endeavors.”
“It’s disappointing to see that Iran is as hateful as America,” a downcast Kaepernick said in a press conference. “I expected to be welcomed as a hero over there, but apparently, they too are biased against people with dark skin.” Kaepernick plans to protest Iran’s hate by continuing to kneel during the American national anthem.
Iran has clarified that they agree with Kaepernick ideologically, but they need someone who can throw.
