Colin Kaepernick will be working out in Atlanta Saturday, and an open invitation has been sent out to all 32 NFL teams to attend.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has stayed in outstanding physical shape and has never lost the desire to play at the NFL level. His off-field social justice activities and outspoken promotion of that work has kept him out of the NFL since the end of the 2016 season.
Assuming he still has the same skill and athleticism we saw during his last NFL campaign, there are a handful of teams that should consider signing him.
The main reason the Eagles are on this list is that they had to lure veteran Josh McCown out of retirement earlier this summer. No offense to McCown, but if Philly has to turn to him this season, it’s probably a lost cause.
Carson Wentz is the undisputed starter for the Eagles. That wouldn’t change with Kaepernick arriving. He’d clearly be the backup. But if Wentz, who has a history of getting injured, were to be forced out of action, Kaepernick could inject some life into an offense that needs it right now.
