Colin Kaepernick is still looking for a job.
A source close to the former 49ers quarterback made it known he is interested in joining the Dolphins, according to a CBS Sports report.
Reached out to source close to @Kaepernick7 and asked if he was interested in filling Miami QB vacancy. Was told “yes, he’s training hard and ready to play” could get interesting

Miami traded last year’s starter Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, so it’s in the market for a new face under center.
Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice in 2016. He opted out of his contract with San Francisco in March 2017 and has not found work in the NFL since.
In his last NFL season, Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns. The 49ers finished 2-14.
Tannehill struggled with his health in 2018-19, appearing in 11 games. He hasn’t played a full season in two years.
The Dolphins finished last season 7-9, and finding a reliable starting quarterback could help them surpass that mark.
