Colin Kaepernick Returning To NFL

Colin Kaepernick is returning to the NFL.

Kaepernick, 32, has been out of the league since 2016 when he served as both a starter and reserve for the San Francisco 49ers.

There were some rumblings that the Denver Broncos might be interested in his services right around the time of his kneeling controversy, but nothing ever materialized there.

Most assumed that Kaepernick was done with the NFL for good when, after a ton of early season quarterback injuries, no one gave him a call.

As it turns out, though, that is not the case.

This week, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that “several clubs” have been interested in seeing what Kaepernick has to offer at this stage of his career.

“Several clubs have inquired as to Kaepernick’s current football readiness and both the quarterback and his representatives have frequently expressed his desire to return to the league,” he said.

“The memo, which was sent to NFL teams, says: ‘Earlier this year, we discussed some possible steps with his representatives and they recently emphasized his level of preparation and that he is ready to work out for clubs and be interviewed by them.

“‘We have therefore arranged this opportunity for him to work out, and for all clubs to have the opportunity to evaluate his current readiness and level of interest in resuming his NFL career.’”

Will Kaepernick ultimately be able to return to the NFL as a starting or backup quarterback?

It is impossible to say for certain.

But this latest development is certainly a step in the right direction.
