Over the weekend, free agent Colin Kaepernick worked out for NFL teams in what many are labeling as a “publicity stunt”. After conflicts involving waiver signings and select film crews, the door may not be closed for Kaepernick quite yet.
On Tuesday, Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, claimed that two teams were in the hunt for the 32-year old.
As described, one team who “is legitimately in need of a quarterback who had a very poor showing on Sunday”. At first glance, this sounds like the Carolina Panthers. Kyle Allen went 31-of-50 with 325 passing yards, 0 TD, and 4 INT en route to a 29-3 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
However, the front office has been vocally consistent about not considering Kaepernick at this time.
The second team is a bit more vague, as Geragos described the suitor as a franchise that was “run by an owner who does care, but which is in the hunt and needs a quarterback”.
According to Geragos, he expects for more activity to take place within the next 10 days.
Is this yet another publicity stunt from Kaepernick’s team, or could the veteran wind up on an NFL roster?
