Multiple NFL teams are reportedly interested in signing Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick is front and center in the world of football ever since Drew Brees’ national anthem comments and growing protests against police brutality. Will he get signed? Well, it sounds like we can’t rule it out for the former 49ers quarterback. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Sporting News, NFL Network reporter Michael Silver said, “there is some legitimate interest from at least a couple of teams” on signing Kaepernick, who infamously started the national anthem protests back when he was with the 49ers.

Will Kaepernick get another shot in the NFL? It certainly seems like it becomes more and more possible with each and every passing day.

It’s honestly stunning to even say that, but here we are. It’s the end of June 2020, and I think there’s a real shot Kaepernick gets some legit interest before the season starts.

At this point in time, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if a team at the very least worked him out. Signing him is a different level, but a workout at this point seems possible, if not even likely.

He hasn’t played since 2016, and live action is something that has to be routinely practiced. Taking several years off from the NFL and coming back is borderline impossible.

We’ll see what happens, but it’s clearly a fluid situation.
