Colin Kaepernick Posts Workout Video Saying He's Working Towards NFL Return

Colin Kaepernick Posts Workout Video Saying He's Working Towards NFL Return”

Colin Kaepernick wants everyone to know he's still waiting.

Kaepernick grew up in Turlock and starred at the University of Nevada before being drafted by the 49ers in 2011. He says he has been working out five days a week for three years since he last played in the NFL."If he was good enough, they'd hire him", Trump said Friday.

In February, he settled a collusion grievance with the NFL. And while it was not one of the brightest moments, this has not stopped him from keeping himself in shape.

In a video posted Wednesday on social media, the 31-year-old Kaepernick is shown working out in a gym. The NFL has largely recovered from whatever Trump-inflicted damage hit the NFL in the wake of 2017's protest battles - ratings are back up, nobody's burning any jerseys - but risk-averse teams surely aren't eager to relive those days when an entire swath of the nation declared the NFL one of many Enemies of the People.

Neither Kaepernick's statistics nor National Football League teams' personnel choices countered the perception that Kaepernick was being effectively blackballed for his personal views. The Texans could give Kaepernick a try since they want a quarterback for training camp as soon as possible.

Kaepernick led the 49ers to consecutive NFC championship games in 2012-2013 and was 4-2 in the playoffs. After that, it has been a rollercoaster ride for the 6-foot-4 quarterback - yet another point to be considered by teams in need of another quarterback.

Kaepernick, who began the protests against police violence and systemic racism by kneeling during the national anthem, opted out of his contract with the 49ers at the end of the 2016 season and planned to find a role with another NFL team, but offers for a new starting job never came.

Kaepernick met with Seattle a couple of years ago, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he should be a starter in the league and the team only wanted a backup for Russell Wilson.
