I really liked Kenny Stills and thought that he did bring a lot of added value to the table for the Texans, but I guess they saw otherwise. It’s hard not to judge, but Houston is a notoriously conservative city, (and team for that matter,) and Kenny is very active when it comes to social justice matters. While teams and the NFL have warmed to social justice matters, it’s still hard for me to believe the Texans cast a blind eye towards Stills’ protesting alongside Black Lives Matter.
I thought I was not getting these cards back, but a week or so after he was cut these two great autographs came back to me TTM via the team. I really like the Prestige 15 set a lot, and his autograph looks beautiful upon these cards.
At this time while I am here, I am reticent to discuss politics, however I’d like to state for the record black lives DO matter. -Thank-you
