Tom Brady has joined the growing number of players who believe Colin Kaepernick is still qualified to play in the NFL.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Brady told Norah O’Donnell that he hopes Kaepernick gets another chance in the league.
“I’ve always watched him and admired him, the way that he’s played,” Brady said. “He was a great young quarterback. He came to our stadium and beat us and took his team to the Super Bowl in 2012. He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player. And he’s certainly qualified, and I hope he gets a shot.”
The LED lights are not the Falcons’ only sustainability initiatives in the new stadium. Back in October 2016, then-President Barack Obama and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy for Sustainability recognized Mercedes-Benz Stadium for being so ecologically friendly.
“From inception, Arthur Blank challenged us to make Mercedes-Benz Stadium one of the most sustainable buildings in sports,” Scott Jenkins, the general manager of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, said at the time.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the first sports facility to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Development) Platinum status. The factors considered include energy efficiency, water use, and other sustainability factors.
And the stadium looking brighter on television is just a pleasant byproduct.
