Although it’s been a whole six years since quarterback Colin Kaepernick has played in the NFL, the man is still working to get back in the league at some point.
The 34-year-old made the announcement on social media, with a video of him training and throwing passes downfield.
After the video was released, ESPN insider Adam Schefter talked to a source close to the QB, and stated that Kaepernick is in the “best shape of his life.”
Schefter said the source also noted:
“He wants to play. He’s ready to play. He would be a great fit for teams with QB vacancies to fill who want to win a Super Bowl.”
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.” https://t.co/VAXfKlZ6E4
It’s the first time in months that he said he still wants to get back in the league someday, with the last time being last October, saying he’s been training five to six times a day.
The former 49’ers QB hasn’t thrown a pass since January 1, 2017, where he threw for 215 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks.
He’s claimed since his release that the league blackballed him due to his decision to kneel for the National Anthem, and even sued the league a few years back, which resulted in an out of court settlement.
