Colin Kaepernick to the Raiders?
- By Josh Clark
It sounds like Kap impressed ’em in the desert.
But whether he becomes a Raider still isn’t set.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Thursday that the “door is open” for Colin Kaepernick to join the Las Vegas Raiders’ roster after he “impressed” team officials Wednesday in a workout.
“Sounds like it went well,” he wrote in a brief, recap (reKap?).
Kaepernick hasn’t played at the NFL level since the 2016 season, which was one of the onetime Super Bowl stand-out’s most difficult seasons.
He also became a lightning rod for attention from the NFL to the White House after he kneeled during the National Anthem in a statement against racial injustice.
Kaepernick entered the year with the 49er as a quarterback with a 27-20 record before posting a 1-10 season in 2016.
The 34-year-old has Nevada ties.
Kaepernick played at the University of Nevada, where he became the only player in NCAA DI history to compile 10,000 passing yards and 4,000 rushing yards.
The former Turlock, California standout turns 35 in November.
