Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the National Football League, all of a sudden doesn’t understand the position he holds. When asked about why Colin Kaepernick is still toiling in free agency, Goodell amazingly claims he’s not an expert of the game.

During an appearance on FS1’s First Things First on Thursday (via Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith), Goodell was asked why he thinks Kaepernick has yet to find a team willing to sign him this offseason:
“I’m not a football expert. I’m a huge fan. I have a role as commissioner also, but for me I watch the games and enjoy and I let the football people make those decisions. And the reality is there’s 32 different decisions, and multiple decisions within an organization, so there’s always a dispute. The idea of who can play, who can’t play, who’s best for our system and not best for our system, are decisions that should be made by those 32 teams.”
Despite’s Kap’s absence from a football team thus far this season, he’s keeping busy with activism and his foundation. Maybe he doesn’t need the sport anymore.
