Colin Kaepernick Is Finally Signing With An NFL Team
Colin Kaepernick is finally signing with an NFL team.
Kaepernick, 32, has been out of the league since 2016 when he decided to kneel in protest of racial discrimination against African Americans.
Over the course of the next few seasons, despite repeatedly expressing a desire to be on an NFL roster, Kaepernick found himself on the sidelines.
Earlier this week, the NFL announced a special combine-like workout for Kaepernick and invited all teams to attend.
It was a surprising move that was met with a ton of skepticism given how the Kaepernick situation had been handled up to this point.
Among the biggest questions surrounding this entire matter that has been asked over the last few days is: will Kaepernick actually gain anything from this?
Well, according to Mike Freeman of the Bleacher Report, the answer is a resounding “yes.”
In fact, according to Freeman, there is a very good chance that an NFL team picks him before the end of this month if all goes well.
“While the seemingly haphazard manner in which NFL has planned this gives rise to questions about the league’s intentions, two team executives told B/R they believe the interest in Kaepernick is real, and if he throws well, he’ll be on a team by the end of the month,” he wrote.
“These executives believe the underlying purpose of the pro day is to signal to teams that they are clear to sign Kaepernick.”
Will Kaepernick ultimately end up getting signed by an NFL team this month?
It is increasingly starting to look like that is the case.
