Colin Kaepernick is always looking to make it back in the NFL and the recent injuries of starring quarterbacks could be his way in. New Orleans Saints got Drew Brees injured, Pittsburgh Steelers have an injured Ben Rothlisberger and the New York Jets also lost Sam Darnold to mono disease. It is the main reason why Kaepernick and his agents are in touch with the NFL teams who have a quarterback problem.
Cam out w/foot injury. Colin Kaepernick, 31 years old, healthy, having led the 49ers to an NFC championship game, and a Super Bowl, can’t get his call returned by a single team. https://t.co/ARvTp2Ty1u

It has been 3 years since Kaepernick last played in NFL for the San Francisco 49ers. It is said that NFL blackballed him after he started kneeling during the national anthem for protesting against social and racial injustice in sports.
Colin Kaepernick is Training Hard for Comeback
Colin Kaepernick knows the quarterback situations in the NFL and how one player getting injured can change the fate of a team. It is why he has been constantly training for the past three years despite not playing for any NFL team. Kaepernick has shared various videos on his social media handles which shows that the QB is in great shape.
I don’t care how long @Kaepernick7 has been out (blackballed) of the league, he’s still better than a bunch of these guys on active rosters today and would give a few teams a much better chance to win. This is a fact.

His agent has contacted several teams asking for a deal. He said that Colin has been waking up at 5 am daily on 5 days of the week to work out and stay fit for returning to the NFL games.
NFL Politics and Kaepernick
There is no doubt Kaepernick is a great player and is in amazing shape, but the NFL teams signing him is still a bit complicated. In the last NFL season he played, Kaepernick completed 59.2 percent of his passes in 12 games with 16 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

NFL teams like Saints, Jets, Steelers, etc. would sign a deal with a quarterback with such stats immediately under normal circumstances. The whole deal regarding Kaepernick is different and there are a lot of controversies involved. NFL politics could come in between Kaepernick and any team offering him a deal.
