Colin Kaepernick is willing to be a back-up quarterback, will an NFL team give him a shot?
Kaepernick is being blackballed by the NFL

Colin Kaepernick just wants an opportunity to play football again. He sat down with Chad Johnson, Adam “Pacman” Jones and Brandon Marshall on “I Am Athlete“, after a workout in Weston, Florida and he told Marshall he would be willing to be a back-up.

Do you think he will get another shot?

Will a team ever bring him in even as a back-up?

Marshall asked Kaepernick if he’d be willing to take a role similar to Carmelo Anthony in the NBA … where the Future Hall of Famer signed for the veteran’s minimum (about $2.6 million) to play a minimized role with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Colin said he is willing to come in and be a back-up but knows he will not be the back-up for long.

“I know I have to find my way back in. So, if I have to come in as a backup, that’s fine,” Kaepernick told the guys.

“But that’s not where I’m staying. And when I prove that I’m a starter, I want to be able to step on the field as such. I just need that opportunity to walk through the door.”

I think the NFL should allow him to try his hand already. Give him a shot, if he can make it amen, if not cut him and move on. What do you think?
