'I'd love to see Kaepernick come in, if he's good enough'

'I'd love to see Kaepernick come in, if he's good enough'

Kaepernick, who began kneeling during the national anthem to bring awareness to racial injustice in America, decided not to continue with the 49ers after the end of the 2016 season.

This is Kaepernick's first public comment about his employment situation since he settled a collusion charge with the National Football League in February. Frankly, I'd love to see Kaepernick come in, if he's good enough. But I don't want to see him come in if somebody thinks it's a good PR move. "If he's good enough, he will be in". I know so numerous owners. "If he's good enough, he will be in".

"So if he's good enough, they would sign him in a heartbeat".

On Wednesday, Kaepernick posted a video on his social media accounts of himself working out in a gym, saying: "5am. For 3 years. Still Ready". In the video, Kaepernick says, "Five a.m".

A person close to Kaepernick told The Associated Press on Friday: "Colin has always been prepared to compete at the highest level and is in the best shape of his life". Nick Foles led Philadelphia to four playoff wins in two years and was 2018 Super Bowl MVP, but signed an $88 million, four-year deal with Jacksonville in free agency.

The 12-foot, 3,000-pound bronze statues honoring the great running back and the franchise founder and coach will be made public two days before Chicago hosts Green Bay to kick off the NFL's 100th season.

The Philadelphia Eagles lost backup Nate Sudfeld to a broken left wrist suffered Thursday night, raising speculation the team would be in the market for an experienced quarterback.

Over the next few months, it will be interesting to see if a team takes a waiver on Kaepernick, especially with the season approaching faster than ever. Despite his history of on-the-field success, no team was willing to sign Kaepernick to be their starting quarterback.
