Colin Kaepernick is breaking his silence and tells activist Shaun King that he would like to play for the NFL again…
According to Sports Illustrated.com
King says he asked Kaepernick whether he wanted to play football and Kaepernick responded with “Yes. I’ve never stopped. I’m ready right now. Working out daily.” These are Kaepernick’s first public comments in a while regarding his interest in playing again. Several teams had expressed interest in sign Kaepernick but not deal ever came into fruition. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady backed Kaepernick and believes that he should get another shot in the NFL.
“I’ve always watched him and admired him, the way that he’s played he was a great young quarterback,” Brady told Norah O’Donnell of CBS. “He came to our stadium and beat us and took his team to the Super Bowl. He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player. And he’s certainly qualified and I hope he gets a shot.”
