Agent: 'I have never seen anything like' Kaepernick's unemployment

  Agent: 'I have never seen anything like' Kaepernick's unemployment Representatives for quarterback Colin Kaepernick released a fact sheet on Thursday that pushes back on "false narratives" regarding his unemployment, which is approaching three years in length. According to the statement, no team has offered Kaepernick a contract or put him through a workout since he became a free agent in March 2017. "Seattle brought Colin in for a visit but did not work him out," it says. "Afterward, Pete Carroll said Colin is a 'starter in this league.' No other NFL team has interviewed or worked out Colin in the past three seasons, despite other false statements in the media to the contrary.

Colin Kaepernick is still not on an NFL roster. Three seasons ago, Kaepernick decided to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem. In the second quarter of Thursday’s game against the Denver Broncos, Patrick Mahomes suffered a right patellar (kneecap) dislocation, a source told

Whenever a big-name quarterback goes down with an injury, the calls for a team to sign Colin Kaepernick inevitably come up.

But this time, with Patrick Mahomes potentially out for a while, this is absolutely the perfect situation for the Kansas City Chiefs to replace their MVP QB with the Exiled QB. And it goes beyond simply saying Kaepernick should be in an NFL uniform ( which still holds true regardless of the team).

This would be the ideal marriage of the right player for the right scheme, a quarterback who might not throw as well as Mahomes (but who does?) but has shown he can fit in the sort of offense Andy Reid likes to run. And I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Opinion: Case for Colin Kaepernick is more like a Hail Mary for out-of-work QB

  Opinion: Case for Colin Kaepernick is more like a Hail Mary for out-of-work QB Colin Kaepernick's representatives issue release detailing "false narratives" regarding quarterback's attempts to return to NFL.

Patrick Mahomes , one of the league’s most electric young stars and a frontrunner to defend last year’s MVP award, left Week 7’s clash Mahomes ’ big arm and penchant for highlight-reel plays made him a perfect fit in Reid’s freewheeling offense.

Let's start with the scheme: our Steven Ruiz, who spends his days and nights eating, breathing and sleeping tape, wrote about Kaepernick fitting in Jay Gruden's West Coast offense when the Washington Redskins lost Alex Smith and Colt McCoy to injury in 2018. Reid has been known for his use of the West Coast throughout his storied NFL career.

Kaepernick ran a West Coast style offense for Jim Harbaugh when he emerged as the 49ers QB, and the player he replaced - Alex Smith - went off to run Reid's offense in Kansas City. Kaepernick is perfectly capable of running Reid's systems (with a few tweaks), a point his representatives made in a recent letter.

There's also another connection between Kaepernick and Reid: ex-Nevada head coach Chris Ault was a consultant to Reid from 2013-2015:

In an offense that has struggled to run the football this year, Kaepernick would add that threat and dynamic, and it's worth noting Mahomes' ankle injury hindered his ability to run with the ball. Kaepernick was known for his arm strength when he played, although I'm not sure anyone besides Mahomes could complete those bonkers long touchdown passes we see seemingly weekly.

Finally, there's the question on everyone's mind: would Kaepernick and the media barrage that is sure to follow him be too much of a "distraction?" There was one owner who said in 2017 he would have "no hesitation" in signing Kaepernick.

As you've guessed, it was Chiefs owner Clark Hunt. From USA TODAY Sports:

"You know, I really wouldn't," Hunt said of signing Kaepernick - albeit without an actual roster opening. "Obviously, we have an interesting dynamic in regards to Colin in that we have Alex Smith as our starter. Because of that, I wouldn't anticipate that Andy (Reid) would come to me with that.

"But, generally, I'm not going to tell our head coach or our GM not to bring in a player if they think that player can bring us some success on the field and make us better. Now there are certain circumstances where guys get in trouble off the field, and that is something as an organization and as a family we care about.

Report: Patrick Mahomes to miss at least three weeks with knee injury

  Report: Patrick Mahomes to miss at least three weeks with knee injury The best case scenario for Patrick Mahomes' potential return from a knee injury suffered Thursday night appears to be three weeks.Unconfirmed reports have said Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap. The Chiefs will not know the extent of the quarterback’s injury until he undergoes an MRI. For now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Mahomes is expected to miss at least three weeks.

The Kaepernicks ' support of Colin initially came into question after USA Today reported in early September that the family flew an American flag in front of their Modesto, California, home , an apparent statement of their displeasure with Colin .

"We're not going to bring those types of players in. In terms of a player like Colin, I would have no hesitation bringing him into the organization."

This is all dependent on how long Mahomes will be out, which we may find out later today. But if it's the rest of the season, why should a potential Super Bowl contender settle for another quarterback - a journeyman in Matt Moore, another team's inconsistent star like Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota - when the perfect answer is right there in front of them?
