He also said he thinks Kap doesn’t really want to play anymore, and even if the 49ers still wanted him, he said that his skill set is “trash.”
“All that is cap. We ain’t respecting that, bro. You took the money, the commercials. We don’t see you outside. We don’t see him in the hood. He don’t do nothing.
