The chargers are a team leader of the NFL I’ve talked to, identified as a good choice for Colin Kaepernick, due to the dynamics of the game and the possibility of giving Justin Herbert a real year of redshirt with Kaepernick as a backup. The Titans also mentioned.
The speculation that Kaepernick could have a chance to play again in the NFL has grown.
The NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, has told ESPN Mike Greenberg Monday that it” encourage ” teams to give Kaepernick a chance.
“Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then it must, of course, a team to take this decision “, he said. “But I am glad I support a club who makes this decision and I encourage you to do so. “
There has been very little indications in the course of the three previous years that the teams were contemplating the same sign Kaepernick after he began to kneel down during the national anthem to protest against the police brutality and racial injustice when he played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.
The Seattle Seahawks had been anticipating a workout with Kaepernick in April 2018, but ESPN Adam Schefter it was reported that the team had scrapped when he refused to stop and kneel.
Kaepernick had already met with the Seahawks in June 2017. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that the team had sent his signature:” We have a starter, but he is a starter in this league, and I can not imagine that someone will not give him the chance to play. ”
The NFL has organized a training session for Kaepernick in Atlanta last November, but he finished by change of location the day of the event due to a problem with the waiver the league wanted him to sign in advance.
Kaepernick is a player stand-alone from march 2017, the date on which he chose not to sign his contract with the 49ers. The player of 32 years has launched 12 271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in 69 games with San Francisco.
