Based on a poll conducted by The Athletic, an overwhelming majority of NFL defensive players believe quarterback Colin Kaepernick should be on an NFL team.

The Athletic polled 85 defensive players from 25 different NFL teams, and 95 percent of them said they feel Kaepernick belongs on an NFL squad.

Of the 85 players who voted, only two said he should not be on an NFL roster, and two responded by saying, "No comment."

Kaepernick has gone unsigned the past two seasons and hasn't played in the NFL since his time with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

The 31-year-old veteran has filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, alleging that teams have "blackballed" him from the league due to his decision to protest social injustice and racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem.

Players were also asked to name an NFL quarterback who Kaepernick should replace.
