Colin Kepernick was allowed to try out with various NFL teams in 2019, an event some considered “sham”, but now in 2022, he will have the opportunity to audition for a specific franchise.
Ian Rapport of the NFL Network He said this on Wednesday The Las Vegas Raiders will take a look at 34-year-old Kepernick.
Kaepernick hasn’t taken a snap in the NFL since New Year’s Day 2017, when his San Francisco 49ers landed in the Seattle Seahawks in the 17th week of the 2016 season.
That was 1,970 days ago.
In 2016, while Kepernick was kneeling during the national anthem to peacefully protest police brutality, he received a tip from Army Green Barrett Knot Boer. The political climate of 2022 – divided and controversial – was taking shape as Copernicus founded the protest. It’s election season, and Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are running for president. Copernicus’s protest was taken to the center stage accordingly.
Kepernik’s protest was not sympathetically accepted by a large voting bloc in the United States, Kepernik was used as a political weapon, shouted at as a person who “did not support the military” – although he disagreed with police brutality, there was nothing to do. With the armed forces.
Regardless, after the 2016 season, Kaepernick has never played in the NFL again and is now trying to make an unprecedented comeback in the game.
The Minnesota Vikings flirted with the idea of hiring former Copernicus coach Jim Harbagh in January, prompting some fans to speculate about the Copernicus-Vikings QB2 marriage. In the end, Harbhajan and the Vikings did not reach an agreement and hired current captain Kevin O’Connell after the Minnesota Super Bowl LVI.
In April, Kepernick joined the University of Michigan for a throwing session, signaling his desire to sign with another NFL team.
A 2nd-round pick from the 2011 NFL Draft, Kaepernick has started 58 games in his career, with only 30 interceptions from 85 touchdowns. He significantly helped the Green Bay Packers drop out of the playoffs in 2012 and 2013. Copernicus’ 49 Air even reached the Super Bowl in 2012 but lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
At the peak of his power in 2013, Kaepernick was the 13th-best quarterback per EPA / Player in the NFL.
Signed by Raiders, he will compete with Nick Mullens and Jarrett Stidam for QB2 work – behind Derek Carr in QB1.
