Will Colin Kaepernick actually play in the National Football League in 2019?
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been out of the league for almost three years since he elected to kneel during the playing of the National Anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality towards minorities.
According to one report, at least some teams believe he will indeed see the field for the first time since 2016.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report shared the following in his weekly 10-Point Stance column on Wednesday morning: “I continue to hear from team sources, including one head coach, that they believe there will be interest in Colin Kaepernick when free agency begins later this month, and that he will be playing in the NFL next year.”
Freeman goes on to explain that nobody will comment about which teams might potentially be interested but reiterated that “the interest is there.”
These reported rumors have grown stronger since Kaepernick had his collusion case settled with the league without it being dragged into a trial that could’ve been potentially damaging for the league.
In six seasons as a pro, the former second-rounder out of Nevada has passed for 12,271 yards with 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, good for a passer rating of 88.9.
