Is it possible that the current Black Lives Matter movement helped get Colin Kaepernick back in the NFL?
The answer could be yes, according to TMZ following reports that “multiple” teams and at least one head coach have a strong interest in signing the former San Francisco 49ers QB before the start of the season.
The NFL Network announced on Wednesday, “I have talked to one head coach who is absolutely interested” in Kaepernick.
But, the potential offers have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and their inability for teams to physically workout Kaep for a tryout at their facilities.
“Colin Kaepernick, who has not played since 2016, finds himself in the same situation that Cam Newton and Jadeveon Clowney do,” Silver said, “which is a team that would be ready to sign him would want to work him out.”
This comes one year after Kaepernick held his own workout last year and somehow still received no team offers.
In regards to scheduling a workout, the NFL reporter adds,
“There could be a chance that something happens when teams are able to get that part of it done.”
NFL training camps open July 28, so we’ll see what that means for Kaepernick.
