Skip to comments.Colin Kaepernick Rumors: QB Has Received 'Absolutely Zero' Interest from Teams
Posted on 11/25/2019 11:30:47 AM PST by Red Badger
Despite flashing elite arm strength and fluidity in the pocket during his public workout last week, Colin Kaepernick has reportedly received "zero" interest from NFL teams.
Zero. Absolutely zero. The workout last week did absolutely nothing to enhance the chances that Colin Kaepernick is going to wind up with another team," ESPN's Adam Schefter said Sunday on SportsCenter. "There hasnt been a team that has requested a workout. There hasnt been a team that has requested a visit. There hasnt been a team that has expressed interest in signing him. So, despite the fact that one week ago we saw Colin Kaepernick work out at the high school down in the Atlanta area, it has not translated into any results, and though the league wanted to try to help out, at least said it was trying to help out, nothings come of it. Colin Kaepernicks wait continues and it looks like its going to be continuing for a very, very, very long time.
Kaepernick worked out in front of eight NFL teams last weekend in Atlanta, backing out of a league-scheduled event in favor of one of his own. The workout was streamed and made available to media after Kaepernick and the NFL could not come to terms on details of a tryout that was scheduled for the Atlanta Falcons' facility.
"I've been ready for three years," Kaepernick said after the workout, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN. "I've been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we're waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, [Commissioner] Roger Goodell, all of them stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people.
"We're out here. We're ready to play. We're ready to go anywhere. My agent, Jeff Nalley, is ready to talk [to] any team. I'll interview with any team at any time. I've been ready."
Kaepernick last played for the San Francisco 49ers during the 2016 season. He became a national lightning rod for kneeling during the national anthem as an act of protest against racial discrimination and police brutality. Earlier this year, Kaepernick, Panthers safety Eric Reid and the NFL came to a settlement on a lawsuit filed by the players claiming the league colluded against them because of their protests.
The initial Kaepernick workout came at the behest of the NFL, rather than individual teams, so it was hard to determine the likelihood of it garnering interest. There was likely additional fallout when Kaepernick pulled out of the NFL workout for one of his own, given only eight teams made the trip; there were at least 25 scheduled for the NFL tryout.
Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns for the 49ers in 2016 and has thrown for 72 touchdowns against 30 interceptions as an NFL quarterback. He has a 28-30 record as a starter.
Go away mad...................
He went out of his way to be sure he didn’t get interest. He doesn’t want to play again, that would be too hard. This stunt was done to keep him in the conversation. Keep the anti-Americans at Nike interested.
Honestly, who wants for the highest-profile player on the team to be a lightning rod for controversy? It’s as simple as that.
Just like me!
No one could possibly be surprised. Just imagine scheduling an interview with a prospective employee, and at the last minute he tells you he’s unwilling to sigh the interview agreement and then demands that you come to a new location.
Colon - "There is a big ME in Team"
He had one decent year then went into a decline. Now 3 years out of the game.
Any chances he has would be in the CFL or Europe.
Please go away now
And take Nike with you
he and jussie smollett can go pout over a beer somewhere-
UNLESS it's at the worksite selected by the NFL.
THAT! That right there. THAT, is why you have no chance. You are corrosive and ugly. It's a cancerous attitude. It oozes "bad chemistry" and angst. It is impossible for you to lead a team, especially in an emotional, swarming, hostile professional football level.
He doesn’t really want to play. He enjoys playing the NFL’s persecuted martyr without actually having to prove anything on the field. He went to his “workout” wearing a Kunta Kinte shirt and with an entourage wearing shirts saying, “I know my rights.” If actually want a job, you don’t go to the interview wearing clothing with provocative slogans and “attitude.”
Dancing With The Stars on line one!...................
This idiot already has millions after suing the NFL and the clown wants more?
2-30 record, even CFL teams will avoid..
Special Memo to Colin Kaepernick:
There’s a reason why no one is interested. Your caliber of play was not of the kind that an NFL team desires - even teams like Cincinnati and Jacksonville have passed you up. And trust me, those teams need QB’s!
There’s also another reason. You’re radioactive. Though people like Jemelle Hill like you and think you were wronged, your sideline antics didn’t win you many friends - even among your fellow players. And they especially didn’t win you any friends among coaches or the front offices of all the teams. Seriously, even the Patriots aren’t willing to take a chance on you.
You ought to understand that your NFL career is over. Completely over. It’s time to move on to something else - perhaps a weekly radio show or coaching at the high school level.
Now please walk away quietly.
Colin, why don’t you switch sports to hockey and try out for kneeling goalie for the NY Rangers. I am sure someone will have a puck with your name directed for your forehead to block...you idiot.
At best he would be a 3rd string QB.
No head coach in the NFL wants that much trouble out of some media circus clown who’ll never see the field again.
“Stop running from the people.”
Who are the people the NFL is running from by not signing him? Is there a mass of people clamoring for his return to the NFL? What did I miss here?
Look for the SOROS crowd to start demanding he be hired...................
