After years of speculation regarding whether or not Kaep would ever play in the league again, we will finally get our answer this weekend. Every single NFL team has been invited to watch a private workout for Colin Kaepernick this Saturday in Atlanta.
Interviews will also be conducted with Kaepernick so he can let the teams know where his head is at.
Colin Kaepernick has not played in an NFL game since 2016 and everyone has their own opinion as to why he hasn’t played. Regardless of what you think, we know that this is most likely his last chance to get a shot.
In his prime, Kaepernick was as good as anyone, leading the 49ers to Super Bowl XLVII in 2013. Honestly though, his last 2 seasons were not great and I am not sure he has what it takes to be a starter in the league anymore.
You can say all day that he is better than half the starters in the league and that may be true, but the situation is different with every team. He is probably better than Sam Darnold of the Jets, but the Jets are not going to sign Kaepernick because developing Darnold is the top priority. The same can be said for the Bills, Cardinals, Giants, Redskins, and plenty of other teams.
One team I will say could use him and use him quickly is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mason Rudolph is not the QB of the future in Pittsburgh, and the Steelers have a shot at the playoffs this year! It would make the AFC North a lot more exciting with the addition of Kaepernick!
Who knows what the fuck is going to happen, but we will know after this weekend if Kaep will ever play an NFL game again.
