Brandon Marshall: "I Don't Want [Colin] Kaepernick"

By Jason Lisk

Brandon Marshall appeared on the First Take live set at the Super Bowl this morning. Stephen A. Smith tried to get him to rip on Jay Cutler relative to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Marshall deftly maneuvered around that, managing to compliment Cutler while also sticking with his QB from last season. He talked about how Fitzpatrick worked well with Chan Gaily and “really owns this offense.”

Then, Smith asked about the Colin Kaepernick rumors, where it was reported by the New York Daily News that Kaepernick still wants out of San Francisco, and his preferred destination is the New York Jets.

Brandon Marshall shut the question down without hesitation when he said, “I don’t want Kaepernick” while giving a hand wave. He quickly added, “I think he’s good. My guy’s Fitz.”

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a free agent, though I expect the Jets and Fitzpatrick to work toward a return with a new deal. He’s certainly got a strong supporter in his corner in Brandon Marshall.
