Colin Kaepernick has been rallying to make a compelling case for a return to the NFL. There’s no doubt that he has impressed a lot of the league athletes with his workout drills. However, it looks like the franchises are still concerned with his past actions. Even DK Metcalf didn’t give a proper nod for Colin in the Seattle Seahawks.

The quarterbacks had some major significance in the offseason this year. Be it Baker Mayfield’s uncertainty, Deshaun Watson heading to Cleveland, and Tom Brady un-retiring for another run. This also includes the athlete-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick posting workout videos to garner the franchise’s attention.

The Seahawks have been the only team who were in touch with Kap for his comeback. As they shift Russell Wilson to the Broncos, they have been looking for a new QB1. DK Metcalf contends that Colin Kaepernick will be given a second chance in the NFL. However, he didn’t go on too far to advocate for the former quarterback to play in Seattle.

On the Club Shay Shay podcast, Shannon Sharpe asks Metcalf if he’d be willing to have former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick inside the dressing room.

WR DK made his point by saying, “I would tell you if they brought him in like I have no say so and I’m gonna have to, you know, play with him and get along with him.”
