Former NFL safety and current ESPN analyst Ryan Clark made an appearance on “Mike & Mike” this morning and for those that were actually watching the telecast, you got a pretty surprising scene. Clark seems to be backing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been protesting racial inequality and systemic racism in the country.
Clark walked onto the set wearing a Kaepernick jersey, which seems to be the trend with people who are backing the quarterback and his protest. The show’s official Twitter shared a photo of the analyst shucking the tie and blazer for the jersey, making a big statement in the process.

Fans immediately were drawn to the Twitterverse to call out the former Pittsburgh Steeler, saying he was only wearing the jersey for attention. Clark could not ignore those trolls and reminded them that he is already paid to talk about a sport on television.

It certainly seems like Clark is ready to take a stand in this country and he doesn’t care who goes against him.
