1. ESPN: Colin Kaepernick's workout with Las Vegas Raiders 'positive,' but no deal imminent

Colin Kaepernick's arm strength and conditioning stood out in his workout with the Las Vegas Raiders, but no signing was imminent as of late Thursday night, sources told ESPN.

The Raiders considered Kaepernick's workout a "positive," a source said. Las Vegas could be looking for another passer to serve as the backup for Derek Carr despite trading for former New England Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham and signing Nick Mullens.

2. I still think this is a publicity stunt by Davis. Just like Tebow last year.

The Raiders have 4 QBs on the roster now and released one other earlier this month. Why would they need a 34 year old (now not as mobile) QB that hasn't seen a NFL caliber defense in 6 years.

3. Colin Kaepernick's Status With Raiders Gets Fresh Update (Like, no change)

Colin Kaepernick’s Status With Raiders Gets Fresh Update
June 13, 2022

The Las Vegas Raiders surprised a lot of people this past month when they brought Colin Kaepernick in for a tryout.

Kaepernick has been out of the league since 2016, when he decided to publicly protest racial injustice prior to games. In the years since, despite a lot of chatter regarding him getting another shot in the pro ranks, no opportunity ever actually materialized.




Shortly after Las Vegas invited Kaepernick in, two other teams suddenly decided they were interested in him as well.

In the aftermath, a pretty clear verdict on Kaepernick’s skills as they presently stand emerged.


So where do things stand now?

Well, according to NFL insider Josina Anderson, it doesn’t appear that much is happening.

“Also regarding Colin Kaepernick’s post workout status in Las Vegas, my understanding is a possible future for Kaep as a Raider is not necessarily off the table, but at the same time not at the mesh point of definitively happening either,” Anderson reported this week.


“Either way, no timetable on a decision.”

At this point, a lot of people have weighed in Kaepernick’s NFL prospects. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has done it. Denver Broncos star Russell Wilson has as well. Their opinions have been noted on the record.



But they also don’t matter.

The only people who matter are NFL front office decision-makers. And at the moment, it doesn’t seem like they are in much of a hurry to give Kaepernick another shot.

Obviously that might change at some point in the foreseeable future, but it hasn’t yet.

Kaepernick is 34 years and was a guy who relied a lot on his athleticism to succeed. Athleticism, typically, declines with age.

5. He should have done a Timmy Tebow and turned to baseball

Not many people know the Cubs drafted him in the 2009 MLB draft as a pitcher; the dude has a rocket arm.

Kaepernick threw an 87 mph first pitch at Giants game in street clothes

6. All the two sport stars should form a team and take it on the road for exhibition games

-Tebow

-Kaepernick

-Kyler Murray

-Tom Brady

There are others, I'm sure.
