As Colin Kaepernick continues to try to make a return to the NFL, many have suggested that the former star quarterback should consider playing in the XFL to prove to the world that he’s worthy of an offer from an NFL team. But it doesn’t sound like that’s something that’s going to happen.

This week, XFL owner Dwayne Johnson seemed to shut down all of the rumors and speculation linking Colin Kaepernick to the league with one simple comment on Instagram.

When a fan suggested on Instagram that Kaepernick should play in the XFL “if he wants to prove he still can,” The Rock replied and made it clear that he doesn’t think Kaepernick will be joining the league.

“We met with Kap and his agents (whom I like a lot) earlier this year. Good meeting, looked to create an opportunity for him but I don’t think it’ll happen. We’ll see,” Dwayne Johnson said in a comment.

Kaepernick has not played competitive football since the 2016 season after he went unsigned by all NFL teams following his iconic protests during the playing of the national anthems before games. He has attempted to make a comeback to the league a number of times but has never received an offer.
