It’s so odd when Colin Kaepernick continues to dominate headlines in sports news when he hasn’t played a single snap in the NFL in almost three years. Yet, somehow he and his team persist. They crave that national headline narrative.
In an NFL sanctioned workout, Kaepernick invited 32 teams to watch him last Saturday where it was met with mixed results. On one hand it seemed to be sensationalized to the point of mockery or a publicity stunt and on the other hand, team officials were impressed by his arm strength.
And now Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, claims there are two teams of the eleven that attended that are interested, but he’s also said that before.
The NFL clearly sent disgraced former quarterback Colin Kaepernick a middle finger in the wake of his workout due to the collusion lawsuit filed by him against the league.
In the settlement, there was a clause that would allow Kaepernick to “audition” for teams but the NFL would choose that date. The reason why it was a middle finger is because they scheduled on a Saturday knowing full well no coaches or general managers would be able to attend. The Kansas City Chiefs allegedly sent an intern to view his workout, which speaks volumes.
Kaepernick wore a Kunta Kinte t-shirt and you know right there that the former NFL QB wasn’t taking it seriously.
Even Stephen A. Smith of ESPN called this whole charade a joke and accused the self-proclaimed martyr of not really wanting to play again anyways because Kaepernick is enjoying his cultural status more than being serious about playing football.
Kaepernick even spewed conspiracy theories following his workout.

His high-powered attorney, Mark Geragos, who defended Michael Jackson in his child sexual abuse charges in the 1990’s, claims there are two teams interested in his client.
Geragos wouldn’t say exactly which two teams but he did speak vaguely.
He said on “The Adam Carolla Podcast,” in which he co-hosts, “One who is legitimately in need of a quarterback who had a very poor showing on Sunday and has got an owner that I don’t think gives a sh-t.”
This could be the Carolina Panthers. Kyle Allen played well until last week when he threw four interceptions and Cam Newton was officially placed on injured reserve. They also have Eric Reid on the roster, Kaepernick’s good friend, who also still kneels for the National Anthem. Clearly, they don’t really care about the ramifications of this anti-American act.
Other teams might include the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears.
But this isn’t the first time Geragos has claimed teams were interested in his client.
In September 2018, Geragos promised big news that Kaepernick would be signed within two weeks – hinting that the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots were interested, but nothing ever materialized.
Geragos is likely just playing the media and trying to placate interest where there is none. He hasn’t played a snap in almost three years and it really doesn’t matter how he looked during his workout, Kaepernick doesn’t have pass rushers in his face and he hasn’t taken a brutal hit since then.
