Colin Kaepernick’s attorney believes the quarterback will be employed soon in the NFL.
Mark Geragos told CNN on Saturday he believes the quarterback will be employed within two weeks and he even went so far as to say where he thinks he will end up.
“It would not surprise me if Bob Kraft (owner of the Patriots) makes a move,” he said. “That would not surprise me, and it would not surprise me if his former coach…also makes a move.”
Which other coach he is referring to remains to be seen but Vic Fangio was the 49ers defensive coordinator when Kaepernick was in San Francisco so he could be an option and Greg Roman was the team’s offensive coordinator in that same year, so the Broncos or Ravens could be possibilities.
Geragos though straight up did say he believes the Panthers could sign Kaepernick. Carolina signed Eric Reid to a one-year deal last season which ended his extended time as a free agent and then it signed him to a three-year contract this offseason.
Reid and Kaepernick settled their case against the NFL on Friday which alleged the league colluded not to sign them because they kneeled during the national anthem starting in 2016 to protest racial injustice and inequality.
Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since that season. He has a career 28-30 record as a starting quarterback and has thrown 72 touchdowns to just 30 interceptions while completing 59.8 percent of his passes.
