With Baltimore seemingly out of the running and Miami signing Jay Cutler, it is looking more and more likely Kaepernick will not find a job during camp.
Per Anderson, the Dolphins have discussed Kap as "potential insurance" in case Tannehill's knee injury proves to be serious. No matter how serious the talks actually were, it's notable the Dolphins' front office is already putting out a Kap trial balloon.
Mc Nair is already in hot water with the players regarding his "inmates" remarks, and his team just passed on Kaepernick in order to sign Matt Mc Gloin and T. Yates in the aftermath of Deshaun Watson's torn ACL.
We really wish we had not passed this one along, but there was zero reason to believe a professional NFL lifer like Balzer was "joking," especially considering the straightforward tone of his tweet.
We have sourced Balzer in the past, but will not do so going forward.
Kap was and is a free agent who seems nowhere close to getting an NFL workout.
The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be." He's not interested; not that we expected the Packers to be.
The Eagles have three more players to trim before Tuesday's deadline. Whitehurst looked as bad as ever in spot duty on Sunday, and the Browns decided they would rather see what fifth-round rookie Kevin Hogan has to offer if Cody Kessler can't go against the Titans.
"Everybody gets discussed," O'Brien said in his best coachspeak.
When asked if signing Kap was a realistic possibility, O'Brien replied "I like the guys that we have and we'll continue to try to coach them." Kaepernick is worlds better than any of the healthy quarterbacks on the Texans' roster, but the ship seems to have sailed for good.
Profootballtalk reports Kap isn't just hoping to prove collusion in his case, but "trigger termination of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement" under a clause in the CBA (Article 69, Section 2).
It's not debatable that teams have passed on Kaepernick for far worse players. Then, his [girlfriend] goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day." The picture can be seen at the following link.
