After the Superbowl, I usually go into a period of dormancy. Don’t care for basketball, baseball is boring and I can watch enough hockey to stay interested. So when I see a headline regarding anything football, I glom on, no matter trivial.
So Kaepernick is “ready” for the NFL again, eh. Question is, is the NFL ready for him, and will any team take a chance on quarterback who may no longer have it. Also will any team risk any potential antics on his part.
from the Blaze:
Colin Kaepernick looking to get back in NFL after settling grievance—and a QB vacancy just opened
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly ready to get back in the NFL now that he has settled his grievance against the league that claimed he had been blackballed for protesting the national anthem.
Kaepernick has not played professional football since 2016, but a source close to the former quarterback said he’s ready to go if called upon. The Miami Dolphins traded their starting quarterback Friday, creating a vacancy Kaepernick could potentially fill.
“Yes, he’s training hard and ready to play,” the source told CBS Sports reporter Jason La Canfora on Friday when asked about the Dolphins.
What’s the situation?
The Miami Dolphins traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans on Friday. They also failed to sign quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who chose to remain with the New Orleans Saints.
So, Miami’s only quarterbacks are the relatively-unknown Luke Falk and Jake Rudock, who have combined to throw only five passes in regular season competition. Needless to say, Miami will need to obtain a quarterback with some experience.
