Colin Kaepernick ‘Still Working,’ Eyeing NFL Return

Colin Kaepernick isn’t giving up yet on a return to the NFL.

Kaepernick was back in the spotlight Thursday after he posted a video of himself throwing with the caption, “Still Working.”

Nearly six years since he took his last snap with the 49ers, the 34-year-old is said to be in the best shape of his life, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“ [He’s] in the best shape of his life. He wants to play. He’s ready play,” a source told Schefter. “He would be a great fit for teams with QB vacancies to fill who want to win a Super Bowl.”

Kaepernick’s well-documented exit from the NFL has led him to become one of the most prominent activists of the “Black Lives Matter” movement. Such activism has become Kaepernick’s main focus, with NFL teams showing little to zero interest in his services over the years.

But in 2022, where quarterbacks are at a premium, could this time be different? The last time Kaepernick was under center in the 2016 season, he went 1-10 as starter, throwing for 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions on 59.2% passing.

Over the duration of his six-year career, Kaepernick went 28-30, throwing for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions on 59.8% passing.

The Steelers, Panthers, Buccaneers and Colts are among the teams that are in the market for a quarterback. The NFL Free Agency period begins on March 16 at 4 p.m. ET.

  1. He had his chance. 20+ NFL teams showed up to give this clown a THIRD chance. He gave them the finger and wore a juvenile t-shirt to throw balls to nobody at a high school. Then claimed he was the victim of being blackballed because nobody showed up. This is nothing but his annual pledge drive for more money.

    BTW, isn’t the the hypocritical has-been that said things like the combine and working out for the NFL is slavery? Kaepernick can’t even keep track of his own bullshit

  2. This is all for show. He won’t give up his martyr status amongst the woke. He just wants a reason to cry racism when he gets denied again. He’s becoming irrelevant(not that he was ever relevant in the first place), so he’s doing what so many Hollywood actors/actresses do when they’ve been out of work for years…..A Fauci sighting should be close behind

  3. What`s the matter? Has all the Nike money dried up? There`s an agenda here with this loser. If nobody gives him a tryout, he`ll play the race card and try to sue the league. This guy`s such a scumbag…….and he`s not even any good!

  4. So he wants to be a slave now? I’m confused……

    As the article points out, he’s sub .500 as a starter that had great defenses and he completed less than 60% of his passes….. maybe the USFL would be interested, though probably not with all of the baggage…..
