Colin Kaepernick Still ‘Absolutely Wants to Play’ in the NFL, Attorney Says

On Friday, the collusion case between the NFL and former teammates Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid was settled, the two sides announced.

The news followed a Thursday Associated Press report that Kaepernick was approached by the Alliance of American Football but the 31-year-old quarterback was looking for $20 million to play in the upstart league.

Both reports left many to question if Kaepernick was going to get another shot in the NFL or even wanted to play football at all.

Mark Geragos, Kaepernick’s attorney, answered the latter in a CNN interview Saturday, stating his client “absolutely wants to play. He wants to compete at the highest level. This is a competitive young man.”

Geragos did not go into detail about the resolved collusion case but predicted three teams could be interested in signing Kaepernick, including the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots.

“I’m gonna make a bold prediction that one of three teams picks him up,” Geragos said. “If Cam Newton is out, then the natural place to be is to play with Eric (Reid) in Carolina. I mean, can you imagine?”
