Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick apparently still wants to play in the NFL, and these four teams should at least kick the tires on him.
Can’t wait to see what the comments section will look like after this one.
After dropping the urge to write about former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a while ago, the one-time Niners signal-caller managed to make his way back into the news.
Apparently, he wants to play in the NFL again, posting a video of himself working out and running football drills with the distant hope another team out there will be willing to sign him:
Kap, whose on-field protests and social-justice initiatives made him top-headline news the last season in which he played, 2016, has been out of the league ever since as a free agent, technically. And while there have been a few workouts here and there, no team has taken a flier on him since, leading many to believe Kaepernick was, essentially, blackballed from the NFL.
It’s something Las Vegas Raiders linebacker K.J. Wright told FanSided’s Mark Carman in the video below:
Alas, the 2022 offseason isn’t a good year for teams in need of quarterbacks. And while there have been some notable blockbuster moves, such as the Denver Broncos picking up Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks, there aren’t exactly a plethora of top options to be had in NFL free agency or the upcoming NFL Draft.
Granted, Kaepernick has been out of the league for a long time now, too, so make of that what you wish.
And, no, San Francisco isn’t going to sign Kap. That ship has surely sailed by now.
At any rate, considering their own quarterbacking situations (which aren’t great), these four teams could afford to look at Kaepernick as a potential option.
