The NFL teams have been encouraged to give another shot at Colin Kaepernick, and at least two coaches and one owner said that they would consider signing the quarterback if the time had come.
Anthony Lynn of the Chargers of Los Angeles, Doug Pederson of the Philadelphia Eagles and Mark Davis of the Raiders of Las Vegas have all expressed their desire to sign the former star of the San Francisco 49ers if the timing and fit were good. However, the three teams have a shift and sign Kaepernick would make no sense for any of them for the moment.

The coach winner of the Super Bowl, Brian Billick, said Thursday on the network NFL that he saw at least two teams, not mentioned above, that would fit well with Kaepernick.
“I think that New England and Jacksonville, if you look at it from his point of view, just in terms of opportunities,” said Billick. “Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in New England, and then Gardner Minshew and Mike Glennon in Jacksonville. You talk about an opportunity to be with a team where he could be feed, meat, where there is uncertainty at this summit.

“I could certainly see where it could be interested by these two teams simply because he’s going to want to get back on the field,” said Billick. “I can’t imagine, as a competitor, he will be content to simply sit on the side line, to return to a routine, and then: “I’m going to move next year.” This would be the way prudent to follow, but I think that a team such as New England and Jacksonville from the point of view of a competitor like, “Hey, I want to enter, and play now. I’ll get there, it could be interesting. ”
Kaepernick has not played since the season 2016. Although rust can be a problem, he has had the chance to present his talent to the arm during a drive early last year. At least one scout reportedly said that he had still a force of arms “elite”.
