ESPN's Ryan Clark Wears Kaepernick Jersey On "Mike & Mike"
ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark
appeared on “Mike & Mike” this morning wearing a Colin Kaepernick
jersey, which is something ESPN’s Mike Greenberg
noted a lot of people “are going to react to.” Clark said he wore the jersey because Kaepernick “initiated a conversation that I think needs to be had.” Clark: “I just wanted to show support for someone who I think is finally stepped out of what we want athletes to do. So many times, you've heard people talk about Michael Jordan
never saying anything or this athlete never being a part of anything or never thinking of anything great.”
Clark cited the recent incident in Tulsa where a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black man and said, “It was just an opportunity to show support and show people that this is still going on” (“Mike & Mike,” ESPN Radio, 9/20).
