Colin Kaepernick Tells Fans He's 'Still Ready' for the NFL

The attorney for Colin Kaepernick said he expects a team to sign the free agent quarterback within two weeks

President Donald Trump said Friday that Colin Kaepernick should be signed by an National Football League team "if he's good enough."The president was asked about Kaepernick while speaking with the media outside the White House". Frankly, I'd love to see Kaepernick come in, if he's good enough. "If he's good enough", Trump said. In the video, Kaepernick says, "Five a.m. If he's good enough, he will be in".

The latest moves comes as teams begin pre-season games to trim down their rosters for the league's 100th season, which begins next month, with all clubs testing talent at quarterback and other positions. He helped start a wave of protests about social and racial injustice that season by kneeling during the national anthem at games.

Trump explained his perspective on the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback this way: "I know the owners". He re-signed on a three-year contract with Carolina in February. A Washington Post review of statistics following the 2017 season found that 15 starting quarterbacks performed better than Kaepernick's last averages, seven performed about the same, and 10 performed worse.

While he has been away from the playing field, Kaepernick has become an advocate for social and racial justice and became the face of Nike's "Just Do It" campaign.

But now, Trump says he should return "if he's good enough" and that clubs would sign him if they felt that was the case, citing his relationship with Robert Kraft, owner of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

Granted, it's understandable that teams wouldn't want the supposed "media circus" that would accompany Kaepernick, or - more specifically - the bullhorn-blast of a presidential tweet raining social-media hellfire down on them.
