Kaepernick, who took a knee to protest police brutality and racial injustice during the pregame national anthem, has not played in the NFL since the 2016 season ended. The Raiders are the only team to give him a workout.
“I don’t want to speak for everybody in that kind of sense — I don’t want someone mad at me for saying, ‘I think it would be great,’ — but I know him and I would get along great,” Carr said Tuesday, following the Raiders’ first mandatory minicamp practice. “I know we have in the past, and I think we would again. I think for the most part, I think he’d get along great with our guys.”
Carr added that he has been familiar with Kaepernick since the two played in the Western Athletic Conference, with Fresno State and Nevada.
“I remember our days back then, and just watching him and what he did in college and getting to know him and talking to him on the phone,” Carr said. “I’ve told you guys, I’ve loved my time with him. I think he’s a great guy. He’s been great to be around. I’ve enjoyed being around him, talking with him, competing against him.”
Carr would not have to worry about job security if the move wound up happening. This offseason, he signed a three-year extension worth over $120 million that ties him to the Raiders through 2025.
