Is Colin Kaepernick Getting Ready For The XFL?

Former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he is ready. He posted a workout video on his Twitter and Instagram accounts Wednesday.

The video starts with the “denied work for 889 days.” Kaepernick has been out of football since opting out of his contract in March of 2017. He is shown working out in a gym, saying he has been doing it for the three years, and he is “still ready.”

Most writers and media pundits jump to the fact that Kap is talking about a return to the NFL. He might very well be letting teams know he is still available. What people forget is that around the same time as his video post, the XFL announced their Commissioner Invites would be going out this week. Was the timing just coincidence, or is there more to it?

In the past, Oliver Luck has been open to Kaepernick playing in the XFL if he were interested and the coaches wanted him.

One year in the XFL to prove he still has game would go a long way to returning to the NFL. The XFL would absorb any heat from fans. But also get eyeballs on their product. It will be must-see TV if you are for or against Colin Kaepernick. If he plays well and the controversy dies down, NFL team are more likely to bring him in or sign him.

The door for a comeback is closing fast. Kaepernick’s three years away from pro football is a long time, and his best shot is with the XFL.

Kaepernick made headlines in 2016 when he knelt during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice in the United States.

    I hope not he is the main reason I haven’t watched football for three years. I was really excited about a league that wouldn’t have people like Kap and Manziel. I guess I’ve gone this long without football I can go without indefinitely if need be.

    Regardless of how fans feel about Kaepernick, he wants too much money. See the 49ers. He got cut and not re-signed anywhere because he got figured out by defenses. He’s lost skills. Plus, no one wants his kneeling antics on their team. Not good for fans except in a leftist city that doesn’t care much for America.

    I hope he doesn’t come to the XFL. He is why I don’t watch the NFL any more. I STAND by my comment!

    I don’t know if I like this or not.. while I still believe he has skills .. especially in XFL his running ability could definitely be something he could use agiast defensive units in XFL I think he could be a huge distraction to the league.. so I’m not sure be great publicity but at what cost?

    I don’t want to see Kaepernick play football of any kind ever again.

    It seems he will get back to work, XFL or NFL. With 3 years no interest from the NFL, XFL looks to be the realistic option. From what I’m seeing, it is a very quality, professional option. Make sure he gets an offensive guru for a coach. One of the advantages if the league.

    I am looking forward to the XFL, but I personally despise Colin Kaepernick. He ruined football by taking a knee, which is a sign of weakness to me (real men stand for what they believe in). If he gets signed, I don’t know for sure if I will watch the XFL.

    I don’t think Vince put up all that money just to throw it all away trying to save Kap from oblivion.

    They sign him and I’m out.
