Colin Kaepernick Planning Return To NFL

Colin Kaepernick still wants to return to the NFL.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback shared a video on social media of him working out on a field but the player has basically been blackballed since taking the knee in protest in 2016.

"Colin Kaepernick is still working out and is said to be, in the words of one source, "in the best shape of his life. He wants to play. He's ready play. He would be a great fit for teams with QB vacancies to fill who want to win a Super Bowl," an ESPN reporter tweeted.

Last year an NFL source said that he would never be welcomed back.

"The chances of Colin joining a team in the near future or at all is pretty much nonexistent. He hasn't played since 2016 and most teams either have the quarterbacks they want or can get a quarterback they need without the baggage that would come in the media of signing him. Also making sure he could coexist with the team as a whole is of concern since some may agree or disagree with his social justice journey," the insider said per HollywoodLife.
