Report: Colin Kaepernick did not receive interest from Redskins, any NFL team

Report: Colin Kaepernick did not receive interest from Redskins, any NFL team Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said during the week that the team discussed the possibility of signing Colin Kaepernick in the wake of injuries to Alex Smith and Colt McCoy, but those discussions never got to the point where they reached out to the quarterback or his agent. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, neither the Redskins nor any other NFL team has tried to contact Kaepernick to discuss signing him or bringing him in for a workout. Gruden said this week that Washington talked about bringing in Kaepernick, but there would have been “a greater possibility” of him being an option if the injuries to Smith and Colt McCoy happened before the season.

Richard Sherman isn't thrilled that the Redskins passed on signing Colin Kaepernick while "worse football players are getting chance after chance after chance." The Washington Redskins have needed two quarterbacks in recent weeks, and at no time did they call on Colin Kaepernick .

And Richard Sherman, the former Seattle Seahawks defensive back who is now with the San Francisco 49ers, isn’t having any of it.

Sherman was asked about Kaepernick when he made an appearance on CBS Sports Radio. And he was crystal clear: it’s ridiculous that Kaepernick keeps getting passed over, and it’s obvious why. Here’s what he said to CBS Sports Radio’s Tiki and Tierney when he was asked if it’s fair that the Redskins would sign Reuben Foster, who has been arrested twice in 2018 for assaulting the same woman, but would pass over Kaepernick:

Colin Kaepernick supporters plan to rock the #ProBowlVote

Colin Kaepernick supporters plan to rock the #ProBowlVote Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played in an NFL game in two years. Could he make his return this season, in the Pro Bowl? That’s what some of his supporters plan to find out. This year the NFL is allowing fans to vote for Pro Bowlers on Twitter by using the hashtag #ProBowlVote and writing the name of the player they want to vote for. That means players don’t have to be on any official ballot to receive a Pro Bowl vote. They simply have to have their names tweeted. And Kaepernick has plenty of supporters on Twitter who have begun voting for him. Will the NFL count those votes? It seems doubtful.

Before the Redskins called , he was with the San Diego Fleet, preparing for the inaugural season of the Alliance of American Football. That was a full year before Colin Kaepernick , another free agent quarterback the Redskins could have signed, led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl.

Like at first it was, ‘ Colin Kaepernick ’s stats weren’t good enough’ or ‘he stopped playing at a high level,’ and then you see some of the quarterbacks “They’ve had up and down years and Colin has played at a higher level than I would say any of those guys ever performed at the peak of their careers.

“I think it’s unfair because he’s a good football player and he’s not getting a chance to play football. And worse football players are getting chance after chance after chance after chance after chance after chance.  Obviously the Washington situation is the most egregious at this moment, but there have been plenty of quarterback situations that have been worse than this, and quarterbacks that have played meaningful football in this league that are not as talented or have the resume that Colin Kaepernick has. The most frustrating thing is there’s nothing that anybody can do about it. The NFL is obviously belligerently freezing him out. Everybody sees it, it’s pretty obvious, and there’s nothing that can be done.

Kaepernick has filed a collusion grievance against the NFL for this very reason: it seems like a coordinated effort to keep him out of the NFL. The excuses keep getting less believable, too. Redskins coach Jay Gruden recently said that they decided to pass over Kaepernick because there was no time to get a new QB caught up on their system, or to install both a new QB and a new system.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says team 'discussed' Kaepernick

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says team 'discussed' Kaepernick Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says the team "talked about and discussed" bringing in quarterback Colin Kaepernick for a tryout "but we will probably go in a different direction." Gruden told reporters during a conference call Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018 that would there have been "a greater possibility" of considering Kaepernick if the Redskins were in need of a QB in Week 1 rather than at this stage of the season now.

Kaepernick hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since Jan. 1, 2017.

Richard Sherman called out the Redskins after they made up a flimsy excuse to explain why they won't sign Colin Kaepernick . Yesterday, I came across Jay Gruden’s explanation for why Colin Kaepernick wasn’t a candidate for the position, claiming the Redskins would have to dramatically

Either that’s a terrible excuse for why they didn’t want to sign (or even seriously consider) Kaepernick, or the Redskins are just a really bad team that can’t do what the Baltimore Ravens have managed to do for several weeks. (Honestly, both could be true.)

It’s definitely fair to say that signing Kaepernick wouldn’t have suddenly turned around the Redskins’ failing season. But it’s hard to deny that based on his résumé alone, he would have been a better choice than either Mark Sanchez, who was called in to be the backup for QB Colt McCoy, or Josh Johnson, who was signed to be Sanchez’s backup after McCoy broke his fibula. Johnson hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since 2013. Sherman pointed out that Kaepernick has been to the playoffs and the Super Bowl, and has played in multiple Pro Bowls.

The Redskins had a need for a backup quarterback after Colt McCoy suffered a leg injury and after the team decided not to sign Colin Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman called the move “unfair.”.

Sherman went on the “PFT PM” podcast on Tuesday and said even more, putting the entire situation into stunning and disheartening perspective. Via ProFootballTalk:

“[McCoy and Sanchez] had up and down years and Colin has played at a higher level than I would say any of those guys ever performed at the peak of their careers. You start to see stuff like that and it’s almost like teams are purposefully making it obvious that, like, they’re keeping him out. Unfortunately there has, to this point, been nothing that the courts or the league has done about it and that’s the disappointing part, because these good football players didn’t commit a crime, he didn’t put his hands on anybody, murder anybody, you know, do anything that’s that insanely crazy that he deserves to be banned from our football league.”

It doesn’t seem like Kaepernick’s résumé matters. His collusion grievance, as well as his position on kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustice, is going to continue to keep him from getting a job in the NFL. Meanwhile, Foster’s two assault arrests in less than a year didn’t stop him from being picked up by the Redskins a mere day after he was cut.
