It has been nearly three seasons since Colin Kaepernick has taken the field in the NFL. While most teams that have not publicly commented on Kaepernick, NFL Network reports there is still "legitimate interest" from multiple teams, with a potential deal most likely to come closer to training camp.
"At least a couple of teams" are serious about exploring Kaepernick, Michael Silver reported Wednesday. "I have talked to one head coach who is absolutely interested."
The main holdup, Silver added, isn't likely to be related to Kaepernick's history of on-field protests, which NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and many other league executives have recently applauded Silver said. Instead, he reported, the former Niners standout "finds himself in the same situation that Newton and Clowney are in which is a team that would be ready to sign him would want to work him out.
Just a few weeks ago, Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network reported several teams were seriously interested in him as a potential backup, including Chargers coach Anthony Lynn.
