The NFL has not seen former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the field since the 2016 season, but the former NFL quarterback turned activist has the world talking about his ability to return to the NFL.

Kaepernick posted a video on social media on Thursday with the caption “Still working.” The video featured him showing off some of the moves that made him an NFL-caliber signal-caller.

According to Adam Schefter, Kaepernick is reportedly in “the best shape of his life” and still eyeing a return to the NFL.

Kaepernick has been controversial to some NFL fans following his decision to kneel for the national anthem while on the 49ers, and this new report has brought in a mixed reaction from the NFL world.

Some feel that, given Kaepernick’s credentials as a quarterback who led his team to a Super Bowl appearance, he should certainly be on an NFL roster.

However, there are others that feel that Kaepernick’s time has passed to be a true NFL quarterback.

While I am sure that Kaepernick would love to come back to the league, at this point, it just seems like a stretch after all these years. While many NFL teams are in need of a quarterback, it’s hard to imagine one would give him a chance after not doing so for this whole time.

It is still an interesting report that could possibly develop considering all of the teams that are in need of a quarterback this offseason. And there’s always the USFL if Kaepernick wants to play but doesn’t see a way back in the NFL.
