Colin Kaepernick should have a job in the NFL today. Kaepernick not receiving a single call from any NFL team at this point is straight up disrespectful.
Reports that a number of NFL teams have been showing interest in signing Kaepernick have been swirling around for months. Jay Gruden, Washington Redskins coach, fueled such reports when he announced that he had “seriously discussed” inviting Kaepernick to play for his team after they had lost their first and second-string signal callers. According to an insider who spoke to ESPN, Kaepernick is unlikely to join the Washington Redskins in the near future or any other NFL team for that matter.
Despite HC Jay Gruden saying Washington had internal discussions about bringing in Colin Kaepernick, Redskins didn't reach out to him – nor has any team this season.https://t.co/Nxlc0T85G6

Another league source told the network’s senior writer Adam Schefter that no team had reached out to Kaepernick to gauge interest in playing or set up a workout. Instead of the 31-year-old QB who played in a Super Bowl as recently as 2013, the Redskins signed Mark Sanchez, a player best known for a play called the “Butt Fumble.”
To back up Sanchez in his start against the New York Giants — a game they are currently losing by a score of 40 to 8 — the Skins signed Josh Johnson, who previously served as Kaepernick’s backup in San Francisco.
The history books will be kind to Kaepernick who is still in amazing shape and wants to play football. Unfortunately, the old white billionaire’s boys club clearly doesn’t want him back in the league.
