Report: Colin Kaepernick’s agent has contacted quarterback-needy teams

Getty Images

Colin Kaepernick’s agent has reached out to teams in need of quarterback help, Chris Williamson of SNY reports.

“Colin is literally in the best shape of his life,” a source close to Kaepernick told Williamson. “He’s been working out five days a week at 5 a.m. for three years. He wants to play and his agent has been contacting teams in need of a quarterback.”

It seems a long shot given Kaepernick hasn’t played since 2016, and no team even has expressed interest even in working him out since he settled a collusion grievance with the NFL in February.

The Panthers, Saints, Jets and Steelers all have had injuries that have had them looking at quarterbacks. None are expected to have interest in Kaepernick.

What else is new?

The Colts signed Brian Hoyer after Andrew Luck retired on the eve of the season, and the Eagles chose to lure Josh McCown out of retirement after backup Nate Sudfeld fractured a wrist in the preseason. The Jaguars traded for Josh Dobbs after Nick Foles broke his left clavicle.

Kaepernick hasn’t given up hope, though, that some team will give him another chance.

Kaepernick tweeted last month that he’s “still ready” to play. Recent videos on social media have shown him working out, including one of Kaepernick throwing to Odell Beckham Jr.

Kaepernick, 31, played six seasons with the 49ers, throwing 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

  1. Elway’s draft failures get multiple chances, but Kaep doesn’t get a second chance. Hilarious that some people believed he wasn’t blacklisted.

  2. Nobody wants the media swarming their facilities to quiz every employee about Kaepernick. Give it up. Kaepernick will never take another NFL snap

  3. Bring Back Kap! Not only is he better than the majority of no-name backups on NFL rosters right now, he’s excellent for a team’s image. If you really care about green and want your organization to be on the right side of history, you’ll look at Kaepernick. You can’t honestly tell me Kyle Allen’s better than him.

  4. I have contacted them to. I will take less money and will be happy to stand for our nations flag and for this country.

  5. This is normally where I would say, “come on…another Kaepernick article? Give it a break.” But sadly, I find myself thinking…”well this is a nice changeup from Antonio Brown.”

  6. In the past I didn’t see him as needed by any teams looking for QB help, however now I think the Jets might be a fit. They’re the only team that makes sense to me to even consider him. But if Kap is living a good life and watched any of the Jets’ two games he might be wise to stay home.

  7. I contacted Steven Spielberg and let them know I’m ready to star in his next movie. I’m just waiting for the call, I’m in the best acting shape I’ve been in since I played a tree in 4th grade.

  8. For anybody who thinks that Kaepernick doesn’t deserve a chance (second chance if you will ) think about what he did compared to Mike Vick, Jameis Winston , Ben Roethlisberger , or any other QB who has committed an atrocious act . Give him a second chance , and have him come in and stand for the anthem and then play some QB , and watch how quickly all of his detractors forget about him . Whether he is good or bad , it would be a great symbol of compromise and unity .

    No one needs the distraction right now.
    ——————————————————————————————-
    Looks like a lot of teams need quarterbacks and ones that can actually play. Kap’s the best available.

  10. Will he promise to not wear his cops=pigs socls and he Castro t-shirt? Will he elacve his girlfriend behind?

  11. Unless he’s willing to play for league minimum (and the last reports I heard were his demands weren’t anywhere close to that), I just can’t see a team bringing him in, even as a backup. He wasn’t really all that good on the 49ers and I don’t believe he’d be worth the continuous news stories.

    Of course…I thought that about AB too…

  12. And no one’s going to call him — not because he’s been blackballed for kneeling, but because Kyle Allen, Mason Rudolph, Teddy Bridgewater, and or Luke Falk are all better options.

    *rolls eyes*

  13. Well does he have an NFL caliber QB he represents, because 7 is a proven stiff over three seasons of record sucking.

  14. Nobody wants an overpaid backup QB… they didn’t need him 3 years ago and they sure as heck don’t need him now. What teams do need is a viable starting QB, something Kap has never been able to provide since his first year in the league

  15. Vick was a felon and a dog killer and he got a second chance. Kap made a political statement and somehow that’s worse…

  16. zzzzz

    Wake me up when we actually hear that he is willing to sign a contract that is on the injury replacement level.

    Come on, this is either just a vain attempt to keep his name floating around there or he is seriously desperate.

    You’re telling me the guy that wasn’t willing to go take even backup money the last two years is now having his agent call around for him to be an injury replacement?
    He went from I’m a starter! to Hey, please…I’ll play for 4-5 weeks while your QB gets over mono. Please! real dang quick.

  17. I never thought Michael Vick would ever be signed again after the dog fighting jail time he did. NFL fans were up in arms and ready to riot. Philly signed him and people were appalled and upset the first couple of weeks, than it just died down like last night’s campfire. Now we have a guy who is way better than a lot of the QBs signed as backups who has not done anything wrong but kneel to protest injustice, and people act like he is the biggest criminal that ever. Get over the stupidity and give the man a chance. He is way better than Nate Sudfield, Trevor Simien, etc. and QBs don’t grow on trees. Lots of injuries already in the 2nd week.

  18. “Recent videos on social media have shown him working out, including one of Kaepernick throwing to Odell Beckham Jr.”

    The way Mayfield looked the first couple games the Browns should think about picking him up.

    Lolz

  19. Being in the best shape of ones life does not qualify a person to play in the NFL. A person still needs some talent.

  20. i call bs on the 5am. if you’re unemployed, why in the world would you wake up at 5am and work out? it can t be done at 9am.

  21. At this point it’s a load of BS to say “no one needs the distraction”. Some of these backups and the guys they are looking to bring in (Paxton Lynch, Brian Hoyer for example) are garbage quarterbacks. If kap can still play at a high level and help a team then bring him in. If he can’t then don’t but layoff the bs reasoning.

  22. He’s not a good QB, you guys seem to forget that he got benched for Blaine Gabbert and in 2015 before he got hurt he wasn’t playing that good either

  23. To anyone looking it is plain to see. If the guy could play he would be on a roster (See AB if you need proof). It’s no great conspiracy, the guy sucks. Same reason Tebow is out of football

  24. I like Colin, I love that he initiated a discussion about a topic most people either didn’t want to talk about or were too unaware of to discuss. I LOVE that he fired up so many hypocrites out there who hate his right to protest. However, it’s clear to me that whether he is being black balled, doesn’t have the skills any more, or doesn’t fit with teams looking looking for QBs, he’s not going to get brought back. His career is over, it just is what it is.you write this article every time a QB goes down… why? We ALL know these owners aren’t bribing him back and the issue is now too faded to get real people to protest or even comment to the NFL about it. These owners are too rich to care and he got paid a bunch of money by Nike and in his settlement so he is good and probably isn’t dying to go out there and get his rich self hurt. This really is just click bare at this point for you and I want to believe you are better.

  25. “Please, lord, make this happen to see all the Trump supporters’ heads explode.”

    Yeah… let the Packers sign him. He would probably put Rodgers out of a job.

    ———-
    This is me telling you that honestly Kyle Allsn is better than Kap, there you go now go away.

  27. Honestly if a team wants to sign him then sign him. It would in essence end the distraction of him not playing and would then at least focus on his play.

  28. The last season he played he threw 16 TD to 4 INT’s. There is worse than that starting in the NFL let alone the backups.

    Yes there are “other” reasons he’s not in the league and those reasons are why he’s not on a team. To says he’s not in the NFL because “he sucks” is ridiculous. He’s mediocre and the NFL has 30 or more QB’s that actually do suck. A 4 to 1 TD to turnover ratio is actually pretty good.

  29. No sense. NO and Jets are couple of weeks to get Thier QBs back. Pittsburgh needs to find out about Mason being Ben’s long term replacement. Only unknown is how bad is Cam’s injury week or 2 if long term he could viable.

  30. Kap hasn’t been good in a long time. But a lot of QBs in the league aren’t that good. Teams just don’t want the circus that comes with brining Kap aboard. His talent isn’t worth the headache.

  31. Actions have consequences. In this case he misjudged the consequences. Disrespect American institutions, and pay with the disrespect of the people who revere those institutions.

  32. While I was defending Kaepernick’s stance and actions, my father-in-law screamed the n-word in my face (among other things) during the peak of the kneeling in 2017. I just want all you staunch anti-Kaepernick folks to be aware of the company you keep.

  33. Kaepernick is a marginal player and not worth the baggage and distractions.

    Antonio Brown is a cancerous turd who is a bigger distraction than Kaepernick but unlike Kaepernick, Brown has undeniable talent which means that a team will be willing to deal with the baggage.

    ________________
    Vick was very contrite, served his time, and was a better QB.

    I have yet to hear Kaep apologize for wearing socks depicting police as pigs (shortly after 5 officers were murdered in Dallas by a BLM activist), praising the Communist dictator of Cuba that killed and imprisoned gays, or say he was willing to go through a try-out with any team that wanted to take a look.

    Until then, it’s not discrimination it is a prudent football business decision not to sign him. I

    I like Colin, I love that he initiated a discussion about a topic most people either didn’t want to talk about or were too unaware of to discuss.
    ——

    I’m pretty sure that most of us view it not as a topic that people don’t want to discuss and not because we’re unaware, but that most of us view it as a non-issue. 99% of people (of all races) that have problems with police are people that are disrespectful, criminals, have attitudes, or are a combo of the before mentioned.

    Accidents happen, and that’s not an excuse, but people of all races get tickets, people of all races get pulled over, and people of all races get killed by police. Colin Kaepernick is a genius to be honest. Kaep knew that his declining skills would have him out of the league in a matter of years, but by jumping on the social justice warrior train, he prolonged his ability to earn money.

    Kaep now makes more money off of Nike than he ever would have as a mediocre QB in the NFL.

  36. I think the Jets should kick the tires on Kapernick. See how fit he is. He would make an interesting combination with Le’veon Bell on offense. Time for the Jets to get creative.

    Would you be willing to learn the language of the land?

  38. Kap was benched in faver of Blaine Gabbert. So why aren’t we reading articles asking why Gabbert isn’t starting for one of these QB needy teams?

  39. At this point I want the dude to get a job for no other reason than for it to be put up or shut up time for this tiresome topic.

    If he played well…he’d shut everyone who doubted him (myself included for the mountain of evidence that he isn’t owed anything any more than any other former player) and would potential give his career a second wind. If he played poorly…this beloved SJW narrative can finally be put to sleep.

  40. Funny how some players can be put on an exempt list and that’s okay because it’s a business and the commish has to set aside players who cast a negative light on the league, but in this case they are supposed to welcome a negative light with open arms.

    ****************
    No the NFL will have another decline in viewership again. Maybe a record. Nobody but you and a few other left wing nut jobs want to see the NFL turn into a day time soap. If you want drama go watch the The Real Housewives.

  42. “Colin is literally in the best shape of his life,” a source close to Kaepernick told Williamson.
    ————————————

    If he is the 230 lb chiseled specimen he was in the Super Bowl you’re right. If he is the 210 lb Vegan weakling like the last time we saw him you’re very, very wrong.

  43. It’s not that Kaepernick isn’t as good or better than some of the trash back ups in this league. It’s that he’s not good enough or better enough to justify the hijacking of the team platform for his own agenda. If he were an elite player, maybe, sure. But he’s just not. Wasn’t before he was blackballed out of the league and certainly isn’t now.

  44. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, FOR THOSE WHOS CALLING HIM BETTER THAN ANY OPTION OUT THERE… UMMM HOW DO YOU FIGURE? WHAT YEAR IS IT AGAIN? LAST PLAYED IN 2016 WENT 1-10, 2015 WENT 3-6. LETS CALL BRETT FAVRE IF WE’RE GANNA TRAVEL BACK IN TIME.

  45. Political stuff aside, he hasn’t played in at least a couple years. He was on shaky ground as a QB the last couple of years when he was playing. At this point other NFL street free agents are a safer bet as emergency 2nd and 3rd string back ups. Kaepenrick should have joined the Canadian League or should join the up coming XFL if he wants to prove that he can still play.

  46. The guy who couldn’t beat out Blaine Gabbert is in the best shape of his life. That’s good to know. Too bad he didn’t put forth that type of effort when he was on a roster and getting paid. Gabbert spent 4 to 5 times the amount of time in film study as Kaepernick – no shock as to who won the job and why.

  47. Whoever said Vick was a better QB coming back from prison, that would be negligible. He was a better passer, but that’s because he stopped running as much. Add up the yardage run and pass and it is pretty much the same. There is an argument that good quarterbacks don’t need to run, but Vick was a weapon with his legs – and his accuracy throwing has never been more than average…so, after all that is said, Kaepernick deserves to be on a roster over Josh Johnson, Paxton Lynch, Josh Cribbs, etc, etc. Former military officer from a military family that has served this country since the Revolutionary War…nuff said

  48. If Kaepernick wants another chance with an NFL team, all he has to do is apologize for insulting our nation’s law enforcement officers and disrespecting them, our nation’s military and our flag. If he had the humility to do this, he’d be given a tryout this week. Short of that, no owner in his or her right mind is going to offer him a contract because the negative repercussions will be too great to justify any positive contributions he could make.

    But cry no tears for Colin: actions have consequences. Kaepernick has done this to himself, and has no one else to blame.

    It might also help if Kaepernick realized that praising a mass murdering dictator while trashing the country that helped make him multi-millionaire doesn’t make him look like the sharpest tack in the box.

    But what will the racists think?_
    _____

    Tell us then… what do you think?

  50. All of you who say Kaep is not very good must have positive feelings about Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemien, Brian Hoyer, Fitzmagic, etc. Don’t ever remember any of them taking a team to the Super Bowl.

  51. Let’s forget about the distraction thing and the politics for a moment. I don’t doubt for a second that Kaep is in great shape, but there’s a difference between being in shape and being in football shape. He hasn’t taken a snap in over 2 years. Do you seriously think he can just learn an offense overnight? Sorry, but I don’t see any QB coming in off the street doing that after not having been in the league.

    The Steelers signed Paxton Lynch, who has thrown an NFL pass in the last few years, and put him on the practice squad because he doesn’t know the offense. I don’t care how good Kaep is/was, he’s not going to be able to just step in and play from day one. And because of that, he’d have to come in as a back-up or 3rd QB. Does anyone think he’s going to do that and play for the veteran minimum with only a slim chance to play?

    Maybe he is better than all of those jabronie QB’s on the fringes of the league, but they have an advantage he doesn’t – they’ve either played in a preseason game or a regular season game recently, something Kaep hasn’t. He hasn’t even been in a training camp. It’s just unrealistic to expect him to do this. And that’s why I think he’s not getting any calls. (Among other reasons, of course.)

  52. If he is really in killer shape, then maybe. He’s also 31, went out in disgrace, more or less. The flag thing is only Trump working up a few folks with tribalism, fuel for the half witted outrage culture on the right (yes, its on BOTH sides kiddos). I don’t see him playing, but I would personally love it if he came in for some team and blew it the eff up. I really would. He’s a man who walks his talk, and trying to make the world better, by starting in his own back yard. Something most of you will never even attempt. I laugh every time he is called a “whiny millionaire”. No, the whiny millionaire/maybe billionaire/ (who was born into it) is sitting at Pennsylvania Ave, blaming everyone but himself for his daily messes, gaffes, fiascos, mistakes, blunders, shenanigans, lies, misstatements, embarrassments…..

  53. the other hand, he stood up for the rights of black people and now he wants to be hired by one of the last 32 plantation owners in American society.

    With all the complaining you people do, I had no idea being a slave was paying millions per year. Where do I sign up to be a slave

    You’re gonna hate 2020.

  55. I guarantee you, this guy will turn 50 years old; and this website will still be looking for a starting spot for him on an NFL team. Good lord, you guys really take the concept of beating a dead horse to an entire new level, don’t you? At this point you are beating the glue!

  56. If Kaepernick wants another chance with an NFL team, all he has to do is apologize for insulting our nation’s law enforcement officers and disrespecting them, our nation’s military and our flag.

    I thought his protest was perfectly fine, he was just doing it “on the job” and therefore his NFL blackballing was justified. Or is protest no longer acceptable in the United States? Or…certain forms of protest are disrespectful to completely unrelated groups, and…..therefore…….everyone involved gets an apology and a trophy and a shoulder to cry on?

    I can’t keep track of the arguments anymore.

  57. He hasn’t wanted to play since 2016, not sure why he hasn’t told his agent that.

    If he really wanted to play he would’ve been in the CFL three years ago putting up numbers that the NFL owners couldn’t ignore.

  58. The only team who could sign Kaepernick and not get backlash from its fan base is the Patriots.
    Those Kool-Aid drinkers can’t bring themselves to criticize their team.

  59. Laughing at the morons who call Kaepernick a distraction, compared to Antonio Brown hes a saint. Also laughing at the people who say he’s out of the league because he has no talent. Omg you people are clueless. He’s out of the league cause he kneeled for the anthem period. After watching some of these inept dogs play QB over the last few years, one would think that one owner would of had the balls to sign him. To hell with the naysayers. Although I don’t know after how long he’s been out that he could just step in and play. Judas, dude takes a knee to protest and you’d think it was the end of the world. A flag is just a symbol, it’s not freedom and it’s not democracy. Yes I believe he chose a lame way to protest, but good gawd people are shallow when it comes to their opinion on him.

  60. This dude is either getting some really bad advice, or is in serious denial about his actual marketability. Possibly both.

  61. What kind of money is his agent asking for? There is no way anyone is paying top dollar for this quitter, but if he steps in and does a good job on the cheap I am sure he could find a home.

    He is about 40 pounds lighter than when he was a rookie (Probably due to another of his misguided ideas.. like being a Vegan) and is NOT ANYWHERE near the athlete he was then.

  64. Thank you, brother. NFL has produced more black millionaires than any other industry but Florio/Kap/SJW media are trying to convince black people that the NFL is a racist institution. It’s a lie. It’s the okie doke.

    __________________
    On it’s face I would have to agree with you….however, Vick payed his debt to society and sincerely apologized for his actions….believe it or not, this is a very forgiving society and if Kaep would not even so much apologize but even acquiesce that his protest could have been done in another form….I can’t speak for the owners in the NFL but I know most of society would forgive and forget

  67. He hasn’t been accused of sexual assault, hasn’t failed a drug test, not been accused of domestic violence, didn’t knock a woman down and then kick her, didn’t punch his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach, wasn’t held for possession of a firearm at airport security, wasn’t involved in fights with police, and didn’t have suspensions. He didn’t even say Russians weren’t trying to influence our election, he didn’t pay prostitutes not to tell.

  68. Forget about the protests and all of the other SJW that Kap has been doing.

    Let’s look at the fact that he wants starter money. He was asking what was it 20million from the AFL or XFL? He hasn’t played in 3 years, opposing defenses figured him out, and he was losing far more than winning.

    For every talking about all those QBs he is better than, let’s imagine for a minute that he is, they aren’t asking for millions per year, they are getting veteran minimums. Lets also realize that in day and age where multiple potential HOF QBs started this season looking pedestrian after not playing in one preseason, how could someone who hadn’t played in years do that well?

    ——————————–
    Because he stinks and he’s got baggage. The stinks part is what’s keeping him out of a job.

  70. When looking at the pros and cons of Kaepernick, I think there’s probably just too much built up in the negative column.

    It seems like everything about him just went a little too far. He went from a thoughtful civil-rights protest to wearing pig socks. He went from having a terrific SB-level season to a few final seasons of lousy play. He went from complaining about not being hired to filing a lawsuit and accusing owners of being racist conspirators, and taking millions of dollars from the league in the process.

    Dial any of those things back a bit, and he’d be playing now. But he took all of them into “point of no return” territory.

    I support his politics and his right to protest. I think it brought up some needed conversations on some still-unresolved topics. But over time, he showed himself to be a liability on all fronts that a team owner would care about, and I don’t see him coming back from that.

    The Venn diagram of people who consider Kap disgusting and people who love Trump is not a circle.

  72. The examples cited — Colts, Jaguars, and Eagles — are all teams with young quarterbacks who’ve shown potential. Those teams need backups. The same is true for Pittsburgh, who were grooming Mason Rudolph to be a future starter. Not to mention, the Saints are already (over)paying Teddy Bridgewater at $7 million dollars. The real question here is the following: Can Kaepernick accept the role (and salary) of a backup? If he can, he is certainly a viable option. If not, Kevin Hogan is still available.

    If you think Kaepernick isn’t good enough to play anymore and he’s been out of the league too long doesn’t mean you’re NOT a racist. You can think and be both things.

So a large enough group of them expressed negative remarks to scare the NFL that they would lose significant money. They took money over league average QB.

    CK supports the 1st Amendment, haters do not.
    —————————-
    Yet another person who doesn’t understand how the 1st Amendment works. If it wasnt so sad, it would be laughable how many are clueless about what the 1st Amendment actually says.

  80. I still say Pittsburgh is the perfect environment for Kap.
    Seriously, he and Trippy are made for each other.
    Plus the Steelers are SO progressive.

  81. I don’t agree with his politics, but then again I don’t agree with 50% of this country’s people’s politics – I can still be civil and accept that their opinions are just different than mine. Tolerance of different opinions are one of the things that make this country great.
    That being said, I see no harm in giving him a workout (the Jets being prime contenders). I for one am tired of seeing the same old journeymen re-treads trotted out every week (Fitzmagic anyone?).
    But if he thinks that a starting job with elite pay is a right?, than that would only confirm that he really doesn’t wanna ball again.

  82. Laughing at the morons who call Kaepernick a distraction, compared to Antonio Brown hes a saint. Also laughing at the people who say he’s out of the league because he has no talent. Omg you people are clueless. He’s out of the league cause he kneeled for the anthem period. After watching some of these inept dogs play QB over the last few years, one would think that one owner would of had the balls to sign him. To hell with the naysayers. Although I don’t know after how long he’s been out that he could just step in and play. Judas, dude takes a knee to protest and you’d think it was the end of the world. A flag is just a symbol, it’s not freedom and it’s not democracy. Yes I believe he chose a lame way to protest, but good gawd people are shallow when it comes to their opinion on him.

    ——————————————————————-

    He’s out of the NFL because he kneeled, and attendance, ratings and merchandise sales went down 15% costing the league hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s why.

    And if the flag doesn’t mean anything, how would Kaepernick feel if teams displayed the Confederate flag. I thought flags didn’t mean anything?

  83. If he was willing to play a one year “prove it” deal at league minimum, I’d be willing to bet someone would sign him. I’d say it would still be a mistake, but hey – what do I know? Some QB needy team would do it.

    But I’m betting he’s asking way, way too much. Add that to the baggage that comes with him and there is zero chance.

  84. “Hello, Mr. General Manager. I represent Cancer, and I’m willing to sign him to your team for $20M for the rest of the year.

    Oh, he will want to be coddled, make sure nothing offensive is said, done, or thought of in your organization. Please remove all references to the United States, including the colors red, white, and blue, or the letters “U”, “S”, and “A” anywhere in your facility, as well as your website.

    Whattaya say?”

  85. For the league minimum I could give a team the same results as this idiot. The only difference is they won’t have to worry about me kneeling.

    Now that made me laugh out loud!

  87. The NFL doesn’t shy away from controversial players, if teams think they can play:
    Burfict
    Packman
    Hardy
    Ray Lewis
    A.B.
    Everton Griffon
    Lynch
    Aldon Smith

    If Kaep could play, he would be playing (if he wanted to)

    Remember when he said, “no,” to the 49ers’ $17,000,000? That’s why he hasn’t played in 3 years.
    ————————————
    Him turning down that money was stupid. But I can’t help but notice how the amount keeps increasing with every year that goes by. When he originally opted out, it was only $13M. Now it’s up to $17M. By the end of this season it will be $20M.

  89. The guy hasn’t played for over two full seasons. Why would any team want to sign ANYONE to come in after the season has begun who hasn’t played for over two years. Besides, he has already worn out his welcome after his girlfriend made that inane comment about the Ravens’ owner after they had offered him a contract? If he wants to know why nobody is interested, look at his girlfriend. Oh, and idolizing Castro didn’t help either.

  90. The sad reality is Kaepernick will not get another chance in this league.

    But articles like this shedding light on the topic everytime a potential QB job opens up should continue to be written.

    We should not be allowed to just forget about the blackballing that happened over this.

    Years later we will look back and Kaep will be in a positive light.

    As for everyone saying make it stop already, I hope they continue to rub it in your faces until hes 40.

  91. He opted out with the 49ers.
    Said no to Seattle’s offer.
    And his girlfriend called the Ravens a slave owner after their offer.

    He is out of the league because he sucks as a player and is an idiot to boot.

  92. Imagine publically suing a company… and then months later contact that company and beg for a job. The company would laugh at you, which is what the NFL is doing to Kaep.

    Why would any team want him? The second the starter hits a rough patch, fans will start demanding he play and if he’s not put in, they’ll call the coaches “racists”. No team needs that distraction.

  93. Krapernick is a guy who drove home to his gated community in a majority white neighborhood where the average House costs 1.5 million dollars. And he has some how become some modern day Malcolm X?

    His play was subpar. He was exposed as a 1 read and run QB. And voided his contract in search of better financial endeavors. His Fidel Castro advocacy and pig cop socks, turned off enough fans. He is now lying in the bed he made. Karma.

  94. Why does his agent call the police and get him a job since he is so concerned by their actions . probably get the same replay as these team contacted.

  95. These comments really show you where we are going as people. Let’s state facts. He is better then all of the backups and 40 percent of the starters in the league. The hate is real. When he does get his chance, the real football fans not the ones that chime in from time to time will be pleased to actually watch him try to succeed or fail. Either way he deserves a shot!!!! Manority of you commenters have cheated on on test and significant others broken laws and etc and still want and a second chance. The nerve of you people.

  96. Um, nobody pays to see a football game to watch protesters, they watch the game to get away from life’s problems for a while. Do you think any of us could go to our job and protest while at work and get away with it?There’s a time and place for it. What has he done in his personal time to fight for what he stands for? If I remember right, the 49ers offered him a good contract and he turned it down being greedy.

    Elway’s draft failures get multiple chances, but Kaep doesn’t get a second chance. Hilarious that some people believed he wasn’t blacklisted.—————————————————————————————————————————————-I hope he was blacklisted….from a US Army Vet

  98. Beyond the fact that Kap was beaten out by Blaine Gabbert. Lets not forget – that Kap turned down opportunities in the past to play for backup pay for $5M and $7.5M

  99. That some NFL owners by-passed Kaep back when over his protests, and many folks believe Kaep can still step in and play AND deserves another shot. All realities.

    He, John Lynch and Shanahan met, talked and mutually concluded Kaep is not now, never has been or ever will be – a pocket QB that fits 99.9 percent of NFL teams style of football.
    That’s the reality most owners are using to keep him on the sidelines.

    The QB position will be changing. These teams better wake up and do it quickly. It’s ironic that the “pocket passer” is preferred, but yet, Miami, Buffalo, NY Jets, Texans (until Watson)and others have and continue to CHURN pocket passers.

    While I was defending Kaepernick’s stance and actions, my father-in-law screamed the n-word in my face (among other things) during the peak of the kneeling in 2017. I just want all you staunch anti-Kaepernick folks to be aware of the company you keep.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@2

    I doubt I know your father in law so he’s not someone of who’s company I keep. I feel sorry for his daughter though.

  103. He had one good year and that year he lost to the Giants in the playoffs
    He has not taken a snap since when?
    No team wants this in the locker room
    He is not ever going to play in the NFL

  104. I can’t imagine how horrible he would be after not playing for 2 years. Considering how terrible he was the last 2 years he played. There isn’t a team needy enough to pick up Kaepernick.

  105. Hitler’s biggest problem was he was born too early. He’d be a hero in 2019 with some of these jokers that don’t like championship caliber QB’s because they stick up for people who are discriminated against.

  106. He’s qualified enough to be 3rd string. The question is will he take 3rd string money. IMO his bad play in his last year was his head not being in the game. If his head is right, he could be good again.

    At the very least he should get a workout.

  107. Haha, I was waiting for this story to show up. The guy who was average at best when he was in the league and has now been out of the game for years is really gonna be better than the kids that were in training camps? He is not an upgrade over the Minshews, Falks, Rudolphs, and Bridgewaters of the league. Also, I thought he didn’t want to play anymore anyway?

  108. Don’t hold your breath, Colin. The NFL rises above its principles in cases of assault, domestic violence, and homicide only.

    Terrible enough to take his team to a championship. Just admit you hate him and stop lying about his ability. They’re bringing Oppie and Jethro out trying to find quarterbacks. The man was blackballed pure and simple.

  110. From overthecap.com – “Josh McCown signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on August 18, 2019. The contract has a base value of $2 million, fully guaranteed including a $300,000 signing bonus. McCown can earn up to $3.4 million in player incentives.”

    Is Kap willing to play for that?

  111. Thats fine. But is his agent saying realistic things to these teams? (As opposed to asking for what would be elite starter money just to show up)

    If he is willing to come in on a vet minimum prove it deal then no reason to not put him on a practice field to see what he proves. And if he surprises folks and does well then sure, put him in a game. But thats the road he has to be willing to take.

    .
    Can you imagine, even the GM from miami had to be laughingv when he got that call.

    For anybody who thinks that Kaepernick doesn’t deserve a chance (second chance if you will ) think about what he did…
    __________________________________________

    What he did was have chances with the 49ers, Seahawks and Ravens (and possibly other teams that aren’t coming to mind). With the Niners, didn’t he decline his option? With Seattle, I believe he wanted starter money and didn’t want to be a backup. With the Ravens, well… he had a chance there, too. I think the AAF gave him a call and he didn’t want to take the pay cut (from unemployed?), so where’s the problem? Did he try the CFL to show the NFL that he’s ready to come back? Oh, wait, no he didn’t.

    I am fine with him kneeling. I’m not fine with his police/pig socks. But like you said, people deserve second chances. Well, he’s HAD chances. He chose not to take them. I’m ready for him to take the Tebow route and move on to the next chapter in life.

  118. I don’t believe this for one second. The last thing Kaep wants to do is walk into a starting QB job and show the world … how awful he is.

    Once that happens, his narrative collapses. No more Nike commercials or activist celebrity status.

    Better to remain a martyr.

  119. Ok I’ll bite. We all know what kind of a QB he is when he’s not playing on one of the best teams in the league (ie. 2013 49ers) but give him a chance. Put him on the Jets or Dolphins or whoever and let him prove us right. That’s the only way for this to all go away. And if he does well, good for him.

    Oh, but the Pats fans don’t criticize other teams right?
    When Pitt. and Oak. had Antonio Brown, the Pats fans were quick to spout off about his antics.
    Now that “Mr. Big Chest” is a Patriot, the fans spin it.
    The worse they’ll say is that if Brown gets out of line, Belichick will cut him.
    Where’s all the locker room cancer talk now that he’s in N.E.?

    ——

    I’m a 49ers fan and really enjoyed the last half of 2012 and 2013. Kaep was a great player for a short time until the rest of the league figured out his “one read check down and run” game. He just doesn’t see the field very well. You have to realize that he played behind one of the best O Lines in the league at the time, with great Wide Receivers and Tight Ends. Not to mention, one of the best defenses in the league as well. He did not lead his team to a SB alone. He was the beneficiary of great coaching and a great system under Harbaugh. But as soon as the roster fell apart and Harbaugh was fired, he started stinking. He is not a good decision maker when he doesn’t have 5 or more seconds to throw the ball. He would get fixated on one receiver and try to force the ball to said receiver. Watch the last play of the 2012 SB and 2013 WCCG. I wish I was wrong. Believe me. I’m all for him coming back but you’ll see pretty quickly that he’s just not the championship caliber QB that you’d like him to be. Especially if he goes to a team like the Jets.

    The last season he played he threw 16 TD to 4 INT’s. There is worse than that starting in the NFL let alone the backups.

    Yes there are “other” reasons he’s not in the league and those reasons are why he’s not on a team. To says he’s not in the NFL because “he sucks” is ridiculous. He’s mediocre and the NFL has 30 or more QB’s that actually do suck. A 4 to 1 TD to turnover ratio is actually pretty good.

    —————————–

    He went 1-10 as a starter that last season. If you can’t get wins, no one will care about your stats. And had Sean McVay been hired by the Rams a year earlier, he (and the team) would’ve finished winless.

  124. I wish a team would publicly announce: “We contacted Colin’s agent and said we are interested in him trying out for a short-term [back-up/starter] position until our injured guy gets cleared to play again. We said our offer would be commensurate with that role.” Then report exactly what his side was looking for in terms of tryouts, position, length of contract, and money. I’m only speculating, but I’m pretty sure the team could close out their statement with: “So, obviously, you can see why we didn’t sign Colin. We wish him luck in his future endeavors.”

    I’m leaning toward denial. SJWs do tend to deny reality and the right way to approach things.

  126. Jaguars is clearly the best chance. A minority owner. A small market. Moving to London in 2 years anyways. If he can’t get a job in DUUUVAAAALL, time to sue the league again, cause they’re still colluding against him.

  127. Well, Kap…you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. You radicalized yourself out of a job, now you’re just irrelevant after sitting out for three seasons. I guess you should have taken your option, huh?

  128. now while kaep knew what was at risk so it is what it is. however 72 tds against 30 picks isnt bad. id much rather see what kaep has left than sign these guys:
    hoyer..fitzmagic..flacco..mariota..cousins..bridgewater..trubisky..keenum..mccoy..winston..tannehill..barkley..rosen..falk..mccarron..taylor..glennon..schaub..daniel..bortles..gabbert..smith..kizer..and driskell

    Even though id rather have Kaep all of these guys are currently on NFL rosters…SOME EVEN START!!!!
    However we all know hes not being black listed. what a joke!!!!

  129. I don’t understand why he would settle with the NFL without assurance that the blacklisting would end.

  130. At this point I hope someone other then my Bucs sign him….and after he sucks root he will be gone and we don’t have to hear about this nonsense ever again.

  131. A few things about Kaepernick… Just because he’s been working out for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week doesn’t mean he’s in football shape. He’s also not worth the distraction he’d cause any team right now. Would he stand for the anthem? The NFL had it’s biggest fan base issue during Kaep’s protests, they don’t want to rehash that for a QB that isn’t that good. If he was a great player he’d be worth it (like AB in New England).

    The biggest thing about Kaep that no one is talking about is that he CAN’T play. If he signs with a team, it ruins his brand. His brand is about protest and social injustice. If he signs with a team his platform is gone. If he signs, plays and sucks than everything he’s based his stance on in the past few years is proven wrong. The best thing for Kaepernick’s brand is to stay out of football and leak that he “wants to play” and that his “agent has contacted teams”.

  132. The Colin Kaepernick story is a tragedy. Acting in the greatest traditions of American history and values, he took the extremely courageous step of protesting, peacefully and silently, systemic racism and police brutality in minority communities. And for this, the 32 owners and the NFL brass have colluded to “suspend” him … for life. Why? Because these multi-billionaires will lose a few bucks and the league’s image will be “tarnished” among the knuckleheads who don’t understand American history. Our nation was founded on the protests of the colonists over the British crown’s over-reach: “Taxation without representation is tyranny,” the colonists cried in 1773, and the tea ended up in Boston harbor. Now that’s a protest. Kaepernick is acting in the grandest traditions of our country. He should be praised, not vilified. He is a hero.

  133. Whatever, so sick of this Kaep crap. He hasn’t played in years, why does anyone think he still can? His style doesn’t fit most coaches offense, THAT WHY HE HAS NO INTEREST! He was only good for 1/2 a season, like 5 years ago.

  134. Ray Rice never played a down after that video came out….and rightly so. I still can’t wrap my head around why Kaep can’t even get a workout. He’s in Ray Rice status for protesting. It’s crazy.

  135. Kaep is 31 and hasn’t thrown a pass in 3 years. He had a chance to show he could play in the offseason league that folded. Now he has a chance to show he can play in the XFL. If he was serious about getting back, wouldn’t he be getting on the field to show it?

    Landry Jones has played in the NFL and he is doing what he can to get back by joining the XFL. At a possible salary of 700k, I doubt Kaep considers this, when he’s asking NFL team for veteran starter type money.

  136. The guy has not played a down of football in almost 3 years. ‘Nuff said. Media just won’t let this die.

  137. I can’t speak to his the state of his skills as a QB and whether he could perform at a professional level or not. Frankly…I don’t care. He has demonstrated a hatred for our nation and if that gets him blackballed….GOOD!

  138. As it sits right now and how it seems to those of us looking from the outside in…. the NFL could have a strike and Kap couldn’t even get a job as a scab replacement. Kind of sad and karma like all at the same time.

  139. For all you saying Kap is being blackballed and no team will give him a chance because he kneeled for the anthem…..I want you to think about and/or answer this:

    Why is Eric Reid, who also received a settlement from the NFL and kneeled for the anthem, playing on a NFL roster? If kneeling for the anthem is an automatic blackballing (as you all profess)….why is Reid and a few dozen other players who kneeled currently on rosters but Kap isn’t??

    You might have to acknowledge a few things:
    1) Kaepernick hasn’t played the QB position at a high level since 2013/14
    2) He was a one-trick pony in a specific read option system
    3) Once DCs figured him out and forced him to be a drop back passer, he struggled badly
    4) And the big one….get ready…..Kaepernick doesn’t want to play. He wants to appear like he wants to play because it keeps his martyr brand alive. If he plays….no more martyr persona. If he plays….his marketing appeal dives. If he plays….he might have to show that he’s just not that good any longer.

    Follow his actions and determine his motivation. He asks for crazy high money (20M) knowing teams can’t pay it. He’s sabotaged at least 2 opportunities to sign a contract (Denver, Baltimore). He’s actually never said he’d try out or go to camp on a prove it deal.

    Face it….every one of his actions screams…..I ONLY WANT TO APPEAR LIKE I WANT TO PLAY!

    Not accurate at all. What you refer to as protesting and making sacrifices was really just sulking because he got benched for sucking, they when being criticized for that he (or actually his handlers) came up with “hes not sulking he is protesting”. But that was so after the fact the bull was obvious. But to the politically motivated they ran with that and just pretended they weren’t just two weeks before criticizing the crybaby sitting on the bench (he wasn’t kneeling at first either, just sitting and sulking the whole game)

    If you want to carry this torch carry it for Reid. Honestly I don’t like him much either he has lost me when he starts criticizing players that were actually trying to do something about the issues, he seems to think it begins and ends with the kneeling. But however misguided he might be I still think he was sincere when he took up the protest. And pretty much everyone else that picked it up after Kaep I thought seemed sincere. But Kaep himself? No way.

    People watch football to get away from life‘s problems, even if it’s just for a while. If he wants a protest, no problem, he can do it on his own time. Would your workplace allow you to protest while you were working on the job? Use some common sense buddy.

    So you want him to protest in his driveway?

    He’s protesting police brutality or police in general so I’m thinking he goes to where the police are. There are big buildings were they hang out. They are all over the place. I’ve seen them before.

    You can also get yourself picked up and driven there for free.

    Driveways are just for doing situps.

    The Colin Kaepernick story is a tragedy. Acting in the greatest traditions of American history and values, he took the extremely courageous step of protesting, peacefully and silently, systemic racism and police brutality in minority communities. And for this, the 32 owners and the NFL brass have colluded to “suspend” him … for life.

    Really?? Then explain why his close friend, Eric Reid, who also protested and knelt is playing today??

    Go on…..

  147. At the current state of the NFL seeing that its picking up on views and rating, I doubt any team will sign him to see him protest again which was the reason why the ratings went down several years ago. Truth is, Kap will never play a down in the NFL ever again.

    No, protesting in his driveway in his gated community probably wouldn’t be too effective 😂

  149. Eric Reid also kneeled, played poorly while causing distractions and the team nosedived the moment he got there.

    He still has a job.

    Kaepernick fans might want to work on a new narrative.

  150. Ten years ago the NFL was sailing right along, king of the national sports mountain, un-able to do anything wrong.
    Flash forward: collusion against at least one player, concussion backlash, helmet controversies, inability to interpret and apply its own game rules consistently and fairly, all a prime example of screwing the pooch.
    How many teams need a good QB right now????? Ridiculous and myopic for owners to keep him blacklisted. Less interest in the sport in youth-level ball across the country, fewer high school students electing to play, more legal guardians with rightful health concerns, and the league wants to ignore it all and continue to rake in the bucks. Amazing.

  151. It’s hard to bring a mediocre QB onto your team with the baggage that he has. QB is the face of the franchise and team owners in general aren’t going to take the risk.
