Despite what his detractors and haters may think, the book doesn’t seem to be closed on Colin Kaepernick’s NFL career just yet.
Kaepernick, who hasn’t played since the 2016 season, is set to hold a private workout Saturday, with all 32 teams given the opportunity to bring out a representative to watch him workout and interview him.
Stephen A. Smith believes one NFC Team should not only be kicking his tires to see if he is still good at the position, but should sign him since the team is currently on the outside looking in at the playoff picture
“For me personally, believe it or not, I think there are several, but I think the Chicago Bears,” Smith said Wednesday on ESPN’s “First Take.” “I think the Chicago Bears desperately need another quarterback. They’re desperately looking for another quarterback. They can try to hide it all they want to. They’ve lost belief. Matt Nagy doesn’t believe in Mitchell Trubisky anymore. Nobody in Chi-Town believes in Mitchell Trubisky any longer. Even though he (Trubisky) can run — he’s got some good wheels on him — they ain’t like the wheels Kaepernick got on, I can tell you that much. I think Kaepernick definitely would run with the football effectively. You can look at teams like Buffalo, Tennessee. You know, teams like that could jump out at you, particularly with Buffalo, with a 6-3 record, in position to fight for a playoff spot right now as a wild card. But I would tell you, ultimately when I think about that defense that’s in Chicago and what Colin Kaepernick would bring to the table for them with his athletic
ability and just a winning mentality. We know that this guy, at least from what we saw a few years ago, if he’s anything like that, he’s capable of performing in big moments. I wouldn’t rule that out.”
Mitch Trubisky had been downright terrible in 2019 and it has led to him being booed and questions as if the Bears should move on to find another QB.
The No. 2 overall pick from 2017 did silence his haters for one week after he tossed three touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in a much-needed win last Sunday to keep their slim playoff chances alive.
