Dallas Cowboys Fans React To Colin Kaepernick Signing Rumors

The Dallas Cowboys got blown out by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their season opener this weekend, but that proved to be the least of their troubles.

Quarterback Dak Prescott suffered an injury on his throwing hand that required surgery. The result is him likely missing 6 to 8 weeks.

Cooper Rush is Prescott’s current replacement, but nobody expects Jerry Jones to stand idly on the sidelines and watch the season pass him by without a true NFL-level starter. And given what the Cowboys owner recently said about Cam Newton, it’s safe to assume he isn’t an option.

Enter: Colin Kaepernick.

According to CBS host Akbar Gbajabiamila, the Cowboys may go out and sign Kaepernick now that their quarterback situation has deteriorated.

“I’m hearing from a credible source that Colin Kaepernick could make his long anticipated return in to the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gbajabiamila wrote on Twitter.

Reactions to Kaepernick possibly joining Dallas poured in immediately.

“The Cowboys should sign Colin Kaepernick,” one fan wrote.

“Cowboys might as well sign Kaepernick,” another added.

“Colin Kaepernick to the Cowboys let’s go, why the hell not?” a third fan agreed.

But not everyone was happy with the idea. In fact, some folks were really ticked off by the mere mention:

This isn’t the first time in recent weeks Kaepernick has been linked to an NFL opening. When the Deshaun Watson suspension came down, he was also connected to the Cleveland Browns.

Earlier this year Kaepernick did a highly-publicized workout for the Las Vegas Raiders. Nothing ever materialized, though the real reason why didn’t emerge until much later.

When the unfortunate details of Kaepernick’s workout with the Raiders — in all their bloody specifics – finally came out, the enthusiasm surrounding his potential return died down significantly.

At one point Kaepernick was in some capacity connected to 3 different NFL teams, but none ended up actually signing him.

Will the Cowboys break that mold and give Kaepernick his first shot at playing in an NFL game since he was unofficially blacklisted from the league?

An answer should emerge in the coming days and weeks.
