Which made Canseco’s second benefactor — Mike Wallace — all the more important. John Hamlin, a producer at 60 Minutes , had gotten a tip about Canseco’s book from a friend at another network. (The friend couldn’t act on it because his employer was a Major League Baseball rights holder.) Hamlin began calling baseball people and confirming the details. Almost no one would talk on the record, but they suggested that Canseco’s account was true. One of the few allegations Hamlin couldn’t verify was Canseco’s insistence that Roger Clemens was juicing.
Based on talent alone, would you choose Brandon Weeden over Colin Kaepernick? The answer should be a resounding no, but don’t tell that to the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee starting quarterback Marcus Mariota reportedly will miss two to four weeks with a hamstring injury. His impending absence prompted the Titans to workout a slew of veteran QBs this week, ultimately settling on Weeden, who’s 6-19 as a starter. But Kaepernick, who, for one reason or another , remains without a job in the NFL, desperately wanted to work out for the Titans, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The Titans, however, weren’t interested. After sitting down with Colin Kaepernick for several hours, @JasonLaCanfora says the QB is still actively trying to play in the NFL. /R9qTIZ7EQl — NFLonCBS (@NFLonCBS) October 8, 2017 La Canfora also reported that Kaepernick plans to stand for the anthem if he gets a job, which is worth noting, as the veteran QB national anthem sparked the movement that has remained a huge topic of discussion in the NFL this season. Say what you want about Kaepernick and the potential controversy he’d bring to any team who signs him, but he’s a superior QB to Weeden, no matter which way you slice it. This news certainly won’t be well-received by players like Richard Sherman, who thinks the quarterbacks playing in lieu of Kaepernick are “terrible.” UPDATE (3:25 . ET): It turns out Kaepernick didn’t state explicitly whether he’d stand or sit during the national anthem if he lands an NFL job. Reports about @Kaepernick7 standing for anthem had not been refuted. However, I cant say if they are true or not. Colin and I didn't discuss
