Before the 2020 season, Roger Goodell and the NFL appeared to do everything to open the door for any team to sign Colin Kaepernick, and it appeared to be on the cusp of happening. Here we are in the late stages of the season and it’s clear it will not be happening.

Recent rumors now have Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh going back to the NFL and now the Kaepernick speculation has begun again.

Pro Football Talk spoke about this:

“My personal opinion and really advice to NFL teams is, there’s only one way to answer these questions, one way to find out, and that’s Colin signs somewhere,” Harbaugh said on ESPN. “My advice is he’d be worth your time and that NFL team will be very happy. . . . Colin Kaepernick is a friend, he’s a brother, he’s a great teammate. I love Colin. I think he’s an unbelievably talented football player.”

Harbaugh may not have the power to sign Kaepernick at his next destination, if he returns to the NFL. But he’ll have the ability to advocate aggressively for the team to consider giving Kaepernick that which he has been denied for nearly four years — a full and fair chance.”

Only time will tell.
