— NFL legend Joe Theismann criticized the 49ers on Tuesday for giving Colin Kaepernick the team’s Len Eshmont Award, which is given to the player who “best exemplified the inspirational and courageous play” of Eshmont. The recipient of the award is decided on by the players and was given to Kaepernick last week.

“You’re a 2-14 football team. He’s won one football game. What has he inspired?” Theismann said on Fox News’ Outnumbered.

Kaepernick started 11 of the 49ers 12 games this season. He threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also notably kneeled during the national anthem before the games this season, sparking national debate.

Theismann also had an issue with Roger Goodell’s handling of the Kaepernick kneeling situation.

“I don’t agree with what he’s done,” Theismann said. “As a matter of fact, the American flag … stands for the right to be able to do the things you want to do, to be able to stand up and have a difference of opinion. I agree with that part of it, but not when you’re on the job. Everybody has the right to express their opinion, but not in the workplace.”

— Infamous Duke basketball tripper Grayson Allen was reinstated on Wednesday from his indefinite suspension after missing just one game.

Grayson was suspended indefinitely for intentionally and blatantly tripping players during games. He was back in the lineup in Wednesday night’s game against Georgia Tech, which Duke won 110-57.

Grayson was suspended for three notable tripping incidents during games last year.

Wednesday night’s game was coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final game before he undergoes back surgery on Friday.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “You know, Tom Brady is doing a great job without [Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski], without some of the big name guys he’s had in the past, but that makes his legacy even bigger. Because no matter who you put out there, he makes those guys better. He’s very methodical, he can carve you up, just like you said about [Packers QB] Aaron Rodgers. But I think he’s a step above Aaron Rodgers. Several steps.” — Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith, talking about Tom Brady on ESPN on Wednesday 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Jose Iglesias (27)
