Colin Kaepernick's done so much good this past year ... the NFL should lose its 'Man of the Year' award and give the man a damn centennial trophy -- so says rock legend Tom Morello.
We got the Rage/Audioslave guitarist out in West Hollywood ... and he told us Kaepernick's work off the field makes the QB an all-time great in philanthropy and community impact.
"He's clearly NFL Man of the Year, no doubt. NFL Man of the Century!" Tom told TMZ Sports.
One problem -- Kaep ain't even NOMINATED for the Walter Payton award since he's not signed to an NFL team.
Wonder if NFL owners qualify ...
