NFL Team to Give Kaepernick Another Shot?
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is looking to make a return to the gridiron — and Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll thinks he deserves another shot.
Back in 2020, Carroll said the Seahawks organization “wouldn’t hesitate” in signing Kaepernick if Russell Wilson were unable to take the field. Now that Wilson has been traded to the Denver Broncos, the longtime Seattle leader has slightly changed his tune.
Carroll had this to say when asked about the Kaepernick situation earlier this week:
“[Kaepernick] contacted me the other day. Said, ‘Hey, I’d like to get a shot. I’m working out.’ He sent me some videos. Next thing I know, he’s working out with Tyler Lockett. I don’t know how that happened. Does that guy deserve a second shot? I think he does. Somewhere. I don’t know if it’s here. I don’t know where it is. I don’t know if it’s even in football. I don’t know.”
The NFL world took to Twitter to react to these comments.
“Then why doesn’t Pete Carroll give him another chance?!” one fan asked.
“Ok Pete, you currently have Geno Smith and Drew Locke might as well throw Kap a bone. Worst case you cut him in camp, best case it’s a great comeback story,” another said.
“The fact that Pete continues to lobby for Kap getting a second chance but won’t sign him to the Seahawks when they’re desperate for a QB is utterly ridiculous,” another added.
Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016.
