Johnny Manziel Says Colin Kaepernick Is ‘Good Enough’ to Be on an NFL Roster (VIDEO)
As we wind down to about a month or so before the start of the NFL season, Colin Kaepernick still finds himself a free agent without a team.
Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel believes Kaepernick is still good enough to play in the league and will eventually find himself on a team’s roaster.
“Even if he’s not gonna start, he’s good enough to be on a roster for sure,” Manziel told Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage during the International Football Betting Conference in Costa Rica, per TMZ Sports. “I think once all the other stuff quiets down a little bit, he’ll be okay.”
“That’s a guy that if we go back five years, the Baltimore Ravens are playing the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl and the next year they’re playing the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship game,” Manziel continued. “So that’s a guy who got a team to that point multiple times, who may have had down years the past couple of years but at the same time has a track record of proving he can go out and play. I don’t think his career is done.”
Despite his numbers last season, Kaepernick remains unsigned mainly due to the fact that he upset a bunch of people by kneeling in protest of the National Anthem. The rumor is he’s being blackballed from the NFL as a result.
