Just out of the rules of collusion against the National Football League, Colin Kaepernick wants to return to the NFL. And his lawyer predicts that this could happen.
Mark Geragos, who headed the Kaepernick case which had been settled confidentially for an estimated $ 60-80 million, told CNN that his client "absolutely wants to play".
"He wants to compete at the highest level," Geragos said. "He's a competitive young man."
Geragos reportedly spoke to Kaepernick Saturday to play
"I think you'll see … in the next two weeks, someone will step in and do what's required, and you want me to predict who?" Geragos told ESPN. "Besides the Panthers, it would not surprise me if [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft makes a gesture. "
The Panthers recently signed a three-year contract with Eric Reid, his teammate for collusion, after playing four games since the start of last season. The Panthers have a Liberal owner and might not be quarterback resident Cam Newton, who was operated on the shoulder at the end of January.
The Patriots, Super Bowl champions, are an unlikely destination for Kaepernick, with Tom Brady at quarterback and a conservative owner.
Kaepernick has been absent from the league since he refused to take his option among the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. He has since had a few tips, but has never signed. He had signed a lucrative contract with Nike for an advertising campaign and also refused a deal with the new alliance of the American Football League.
