New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will not let the fear of public backlash prevent him from having his voice be heard.
"I'm not afraid to speak my mind," Barkley told the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard on Monday.
He added, "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. Everyone is entitled to that. I just would hope that people respect I have a right to my own opinion, as well.
