Colin Kaepernick landing spot No. 4: Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers are in awful, awful shape when it comes to their quarterback situation. And unless they plan on luring Deshaun Watson away from the Houston Texans this offseason, they’ll be looking at bleak options to upgrade over last year’s quarterbacking duo of Sam Darnold and Cam Newton.
One thing is for sure: Darnold isn’t it. And Newton, no longer the same player he was back during his MVP season in 2015, certainly isn’t a long-term option either.
Newton and Colin Kaepernick are close, though, the two even having performed together during Cartoon Network‘s Hall of Game Awards many years ago.
Panthers head coach Matt Rhule will enter 2022 on the hot seat, his team looking to get over an extremely disappointing 5-12 finish from a year ago. And considering the fact that the NFC South looks to be a weak division heading into the upcoming season, a team like Carolina could look to at least make a high-profile signing with little-to-no risk.
