Saquon Barkley Stands By Kaepernick Support: 'I'm Not Afraid to Speak My Mind'

Giants running back Saquon Barkley stood by his support of Colin Kaepernick on Tuesday in an interview with the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard.

Barkley retweeted a video of Kaepernick working out on Aug. 7. The video noted Kaepernick has been "denied work for 889 days," as he continues his stance against racial injustice and police brutality.

“I’m not afraid to speak my mind,” Barkley told Leonard. “If a fan wants to not be a fan of me because I retweet a thing for Colin Kaepernick, I don’t care. But I respect that people have their own opinions.
