Colin Kaepernick Will Join Carolina Panthers

Colin Kaepernick will join the Carolina Panthers, most likely.

Last week Kaepernick, 32, held a special workout for multiple NFL teams.

Originally the workout was supposed to be organized by the league. It was to be held at the Atlanta Falcons’ stadium and be attended by 20+ teams.

At the last minute, Kaepernick opted to thrown audible. Instead of hosting the event at the scheduled location, he moved it 60 miles away.

Ultimately, only seven or eight teams ended up going to the new location.

In the immediate aftermath, many wondered if Kaepernick had wrecked his shot at returning to the NFL.

Well, this week, Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos appeared on the Adam Carolla Podcast.

While on the show, Geragos, revealed that two teams have shown interest in signing Kaepernick.

“One who is legitimately in need of a quarterback who had a very poor showing on Sunday and has got an owner that I don’t think gives a sh-t,” Geragos said.

Most believe that the first team is the Panthers.

Rookie quarterback got off to a hot start in place of Cam Newton, but has cooled since. Last week he threw four interceptions at home to the Falcons.

In his last season in the NFL, Kaepernick threw for 2,241, 16 touchdowns and four picks in 2016.

Over the course of his career, Kaepernick threw for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 picks.

Will the Panthers ultimately pull the trigger on Kaepernick?

Time will tell.

  1. I would hope he never plays again, We all should stand for the national anthem. After showing up in a slave shirt he still thinks he has rights he doesn’t have . Wr should all quit watching the nfl if he plays again.

    1. I’m a military veteran and as long as Donald Trump is the president, I will not stand for the national Anthem. He has disgraced the office and everything that I thought our country stood for. The NFL and football has nothing to do with being a patriot… get over it.

      1. Agreed. The person holding the title of President has done more to disgrace the flag than anyone voicing their opinion by kneeling.

        1. Got that right he’s a disgrace to Our great Country U.S.A. Ex military Army hoooorahh!! I stand proud to have served and ready prepared to go to war if needed that’s what real military is about Keeping America Great. Freedom is not free people die to honor and defend this great nation American blood is shed l have friends that l knew it happen to them death and major wounds.trust me I stopped buying anything With Nike emblems next is boycott NFL if he comes back. Kaepernick stay away your a Coward we don’t need Sissy boys like you during war you’d get us all killed buy crying like coward your flag is the White flag (,Rest my case).

          1. You rest your case? You may as well rest your keyboard, because you sound like some Fox News junkie on Red Bull. What on earth are you talking about, with rah-rah this and “Sissy boy” that, when in fact all the guy wants to do is play football and, in the process (sorry for the complicated word, Mark) preserve his free speech rights like any other American (Mark, that means “not just hopped up goobers”).

      2. Poor excuse for any Veteran to do that bud. The National Anthem isn’t about the President. It’s pledging your allegiance to America. You’d think you already knew that.

        1. Go Trump 2020 5more years and all’s well listen lil liberal those baboons in the swamp have got the Trump syndrome of paranoia,lie out of there teeth Hillary and her cronies are hearing that drum best getting louder then ever just a matter of time justice will prevail.Thank God Almighty Trump lifted the rug from under and they all panicked like roaches light was turned on and that was done in the dark is being revealed the truth will set this country free from Rats that tried to do a coup in secret. So stop winning get with the program MAGA KEEP AMERICA GREAT. Love You my great President Donald J.Trump Always praying for you and Melaina and family God Almighty continue to bless you and this great Nation(Amen)

      3. Kap has a right to do what ever he wants, take a knee or stand and this is what makes America Great, you don’t have to see with his political views and he doesn’t have to agree with yours

    2. You are an idiotic Neanderthal, Terry. The USA is the biggest war monger and terrorist organization on Earth. There is absolutely no reason to worship our flag. And YES, I am a military veteran!

    3. You stupid.. He has all the right to do all that and more.. Its exactly what the Flag stands for and what soldiers gave lives for. Its ignorant to think kneeling is any sign of disrespect.. If you think that then next time go kneel in front of your fo and tell me how that goes.. Go Kaep!! Do what most Americans are scared to do exercise your rights!

    4. he has the same rights as any other man. obama was elected and served full 8 years, get over it. black folk ain’t slaves no more on nor off the field. Ride on king jesus.

    5. Got that right he’s a disgrace to Our great Country U.S.A. Ex military Army hoooorahh!! I stand proud to have served and ready prepared to go to war if needed that’s what real military is about Keeping America Great. Freedom is not free people die to honor and defend this great nation American blood is shed l have friends that l knew it happen to them death and major wounds.trust me I stopped buying anything With Nike emblems next is boycott NFL if he comes back.

    6. You’re racism is showing. It’s his right to not stand up for a country that still treats its black citizens like second class people.

  2. No team needs an emotional immature 32 year old Uncle Rico as a backup QB. That he stands by the absurd “social justice” story that was invented two weeks after he knelt *to troll Chip Kelly* is the number one reason. Add to that his INABILITY TO READ DEFENSES, and you have a loser. This jerk cares inly about himself. He showed ip in Miami wearing a Ché Guevara tshirt, verifying that he is immature and has poor judgment.

    1. none of your immature bigoted arguments will defend Donald trump and klans racist bigoted hatred for minorities and decent white folk who refuse to join your Republiklan

    1. just crawl on back into your mindless world of hatred for minorities because after chump trump leaves America is throwing one helluva party that his sorry ass is gone.

  3. Didnt Kaepernick take a settlement from the NFL? If so he sure has some balls to want to play again. He is the reason I haven’t watched a single down of football since he started taking a knee and disrespecting our police , our country and our flag, as far as I’m concerned he can rot. And if starts the knee crap again I hope someone takes his knee out

    1. Oh so you have black children that you have to coach and prepare against how to deal with police brutality that may result in you having to bury a child and live with the thought of what happened until you take your last breath? Okay… I understand!

      1. so you have white children that you have to coach and prepare against how to deal with white school shooters that may have to result in you having to bury that child and live with the thought of why you didn’t take the time to teach her that humans of any color can make a mistake and your child shouldn’t hate just one group of citizens.

    2. Oh so you have black children that you have to coach and prepare against how to deal with police brutality that may result in you having to bury a child? I understand…

    3. As a former police office – he wasn’t disrespecting the police, he was calling attention to police brutality that has gone unchecked for decades. Some people who are wearing the blue and brown are doing so for a paycheck and not to SERVE the people.

  4. Being an ex mil spouse, and for the ones wishing and praying that Kap never plays again, do you have a black son or daughter? So if he went and spoke with people that ACTUALLY served our country and put their lives on the line for our democracy, what exactly did he do wrong other than use his platform in attempts to bring awareness to an ongoing problem this country has with people of color dating all the way back to the Civil Rights movement? Kap isn’t the only individual that doesnt stand for the anthem and if you believe in nothing, you’ll fall for anything! Get over it already! And when you have biologically or even adopt a brown skin child that has to grow up in the hate of a country that is suppose to represent the “free” man, let’s revisit this topic but until then STFU!!! Seriously

    1. You’re wasting your breath. Look at the Bigots in the the comment section. As a 12 Army vet it’s scary to see the mind set of these people. The same people I served for regardless of their color or belief system. They don’t hate injustice they only hate those that stand for it. They don’t care about black children, so your words fall on blind eyes and def ears. They don’t care about any one except white Americans. They don’t actually believe there’s anything wrong with police murdering unarmed civilians as long as they’re not white. It’s not that they don’t see the bigger issue. They can’t. This comes from years and years of generational hatred. They really can’t help themselves. To them Kap is a bad man that hates America even though he speaks out against bad men that kill Americans. Smh.

      1. I understand and I wholeheartedly agree. Salute! Sometimes we just have to address it though. Like the dude calling Kap disgusting yet can’t spell the word properly… a joke!

        1. Monette, Curtis as a former Military Officer and Police Officer – and still very black. I guarantee you those against Kap never spent a day in uniform or a tent away from home. I agree with you and a few others and can easily see through the haters who cannot spell and threaten to not watch any more games. I agree they will not be missed and I stopped watching when Kap got blackballed. To do that in a country that supposedly stands for freedom is an embarrassment as the current occupant of the oval. Bring it if you must, haters or just keep your threatened self seated.

  5. He is a discussing racist who doesn’t deserve to play ever again. I WAS a Panthers fan and supporter but that will end if they hire him. I’m starting to to get nauseous with the NFL anyway.

    1. you were probably raised nauseous ever since the voting rights act became law idiot ! goodbye take your losing arse silly attitude to your grave. exactly where your mind seems to reside

  6. The comments I’m seeing bashing Kaep doesn’t reflect any truths. For centuries beginning with the Civil War to the Vietnam war blacks have been equally involved in fighting to continually keep this country FREE. For those who are emphatic about a young man using his MONITORED FREEDOM to express his concerns and or beliefs about an anthem/flag remember this: In the 70’s Joe Naimath and his entire team knelt game after game during the anthem and they kept their hats and lids on.

    1. I want Kap playing as well as the next person. Joe Namath nor his team knelt during the National Anthem. That picture was taken during the 3rd quarter of the game.

  7. Yeah, I am a Veteran. Kaepernick took a knee after talking with Veteran and fellow NFL player Nat Boyer. It shows that he puts more thought into his life than his racist critics. It is about time that someone signed him. He is going to win some games and sell some serious jerseys. The man has been protesting against police violence and even put his money where his mouth is.

  8. If they take this guy, I am done with them. I have stuck with them during both their up’s and downs, BUT that will be the straw that breaks the camels back if they take something like this disrespectful, ignorant self centered sick individual

  9. I am a retired Marine and I agree with Kaep for not standing. Before anyone ask yes I am blk. Before passing judgement you should read the entire national anthem. When it was written it talked about hanging slaves.
