People are already spreading speculation that the Green Bay Packers need to give Colin Kaepernick a serious look following Aaron Rodgers’ injury.
Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, and we all knew it wouldn’t take long before Kaepernick’s name was brought up as a potential replacement.
QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone. There’s a chance he could miss the rest of the season.

Colin Kaepernick. Birthplace: Milwaukee. Childhood hero: Brett Favre.
Green Bay Packers: Need a starting quarterback.

Sad news about Aaron Rodgers. I know a quarterback looking for a job that was born in Milwaukee… Colin Kaepernick

This should be very entertaining to follow because there is essentially no chance the Packers are signing Kaepernick. The management for the Packers knows their fans would revolt.
Add in the fact backup quarterback Brett Hundley has been groomed for three years under Rodgers, and I don’t see this happening. Watching people freakout because Kaepernick isn’t on a roster after another quarterback roster spot opening will be fun as always.
