Following the devastating season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers, a veteran signal-caller has reached out to the New York Jets.
According to , Colin Kaepernick said his agent reached out to Gang Green to express his desire to make a return to the National Football League.
Kaepernick hasn’t been on an NFL roster since 2016 season after he protested police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Kap spent six years of his career with the 49ers, leading them to the Super Bowl in 2012.
After Rodgers’ injury, Jets head coach Robert Saleh said the team will rely on third-year quarterback Zach Wilson as its starter going forward. However, according to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini, the Jets have begun the process of reaching out to free agent quarterbacks.
Whether Kaepernick is apart of those ‘veteran free-agent quarterbacks’ remains to be seen.
