Washington Redskins fan and Golden State Warriors star forward, Kevin Durant has a strong opinion on who should quarterback his favorite NFL team.

Durant made that clear in an Instagram story on Tuesday, according to Bleacher Report, when he implored the team to sign free agent Colin Kaepernick by tagging the ‘Skins in a picture of the former QB.

With starter Alex Smith and backup Colt McCoy both done for the season with broken legs, Washington is left with third-stringer Mark Sanchez and the recently signed Josh Johnson.

Kaepernick has been away from the game for two years after, as he and many others see it, he was blacklisted by the NFL for taking a stance against police brutality, social injustice and racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem. The former San Francisco 49ers star filed a grievance against the NFL in October 2017, alleging the league and team owners colluded to keep him off the field because of his protests.
