Senator Cory Booker talks to TMZ Sports about the Tim Tebow deal, and then he was asked about Colin Kaepernick. The Senator did not waste anytime to say how raw of a deal Kaepernick had with the NFL.
“I don’t need to cast a shadow on Tim Tebow in order to point out the injustice of Colin Kaepernick,” Booker told us … “It’s wrong. He was blackballed and I don’t need to push someone else down in order to point that out.”
Booker says he knows Colin got an “awful deal” — and praised him as an “extraordinary athlete who had his career sabotaged by people that were against him doing what some of the greatest athletes of all times from Arthur Ashe to Muhammad all have done — which is speak out against injustice.”
Booker was a tight end in college at Stanford, and he said he was happy for Tebow, and said he is hoping he can even get another shot with a team since Tebow did.
