'If he's good enough': Trump says he would 'love' Kaepernick NFL return

'If he's good enough': Trump says he would 'love' Kaepernick NFL return

There's the implication that Kaepernick remains unsigned because he's not good enough, highlighting the cynical, bottom-line nature of owners, who Trump never misses an opportunity to say he's rubbed elbows with.

'I don't want to see him come in because somebody thinks it's a good PR move...'

Kaepernick has not played an National Football League game since 2016 but posted a video on social media to show him working out.

"I think if he was good enough - I know the owners".

"If he's good enough, they'd sign him", Trump said. If he was good enough, they'd hire him. "They will do anything they can to win games", Trump told reporters before leaving for a vacation Friday.

In six seasons with the 49ers, Kaepernick amassed 12,271 passing yards, 72 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions.

Kaepernick, 31, has been without a team since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017. "If he's good enough".

In February, he settled a collusion grievance with the NFL.

Kaepernick, who has been out of a job after leading the movement of players taking a knee during the National Anthem to protest social injustice, wants to play. "If he's good enough, he will be in", Trump said.

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. A Washington Post review of statistics following the 2017 season found that 15 starting quarterbacks performed better than Kaepernick's last averages, seven performed about the same, and 10 performed worse. They would sign him in a heartbeat.

Colin Kaepernick tweeted earlier this week that he's "still ready" to play.

The president was asked about Kaepernick during a meeting with the media outside of the White House.
