Former Oakland Raiders Super Bowl champion safety Burgess Owens, who is running for Congress in Utah’s all-important fourth congressional district this year, has emerged as a cultural counterweight to the hatred that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has spewed for the last few years.
As the 49ers enter the Super Bowl this year against the Kansas City Chiefs—Kaepernick-less—Owens is offering a different vision for the country in a lengthy exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
