Colin Kaepernick landing spot No. 2: Pittsburgh Steelers
It’s one thing to be a bottom-feeding team heading into 2022, such as the Saints and Panthers, who are in clear signs of going through reconstruction.
For the Pittsburgh Steelers, though, there should be nothing short of a goal of getting back into the playoffs, a near miracle it happened last season after watching the pitiful performances of now-retired quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Head coach Mike Tomlin, barring a lucrative trade for one of the few available quarterbacks on the trade block (and with relatively little ammunition to make such a deal), could help keep that playoff window open by luring in someone like Colin Kaepernick.
Would it be a long-term fix, signing the now 34-year-old Kap? Certainly not. But it could afford Pittsburgh the opportunity to draft someone early this upcoming spring with the full intention of letting that prospect wait and develop over the course of a full year.
Either way, Kaepernick would certainly relish the idea of going to one of the most stable franchises in American sports.
