Activist Colin Kaepernick has been attempting to redirect his major career toward football in recent days. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been rigorously training in recent times. As he proceeds to prepare, it shows that he is conducting several sessions on a regular basis. His most recent experience has been nothing short of epic, with two NFL icons getting their hands on the ball with Kaepernick on the pitch.

Irrespective of his hiatus, courses call him to be in his best shape ever. Even Colin is showcasing all sorts of valor and is ready to pick a backup role as well.
