Colin Kaepernick Is Still Trying To Open Doors Back In Seattle

Published 03/24/2022, 5:00 PM EDT

Colin Kaepernick hasn’t competed in the NFL since 2016, but he wants to come back. After five years away from the game, the activist/quarterback has resumed training in pursuit of a renewed effort to be recruited. Since then, the Seahawks have been the sole team to host him on a visit. It was only a meeting and not a drill. Which is what the free-agent quarterback had expected. However, Will Colin Kaepernick ever play in the NFL again?

Now that Seahawks QB1, Russell Wilson has safely landed in Denver with the Broncos, there is an open spot for introducing a new yet veteran quarterback. If Seattle wants to keep DK Metcalf, they have to come up with a viable option to make a Super Bowl run. It appears that Kaepernick has spotted that potential and intends to seize it.

Everybody and their mother knows that Seattle needs a Quarterback. They lost one of the top five slingers in the league and this position does not get filled easily. Ask the Patriots, Falcons, Colts or even Denver for that matter. And here you seem to have a trained, conditioned and experienced QB. With some rust. Does not seem like a bad bet, to say the least.

Colin Kaepernick is keen to roll

After Lockett, Colin Kaepernick worked out with Seahawks WR Aaron Fuller and University of Washington RB Kamari Pleasant at the University of Washington’s indoor stadium. Kaepernick practiced around 90 minutes tossing to a few pass rushers. The former Niners quarterback appears to have even spoken to the Seahawks and therefore hopes that they can reach a deal.
