Here Are Two Things That Stood Out In Colin Kaepernick’s Workout With Raiders

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, two things stood out in Colin Kaepernick’s workout with the Raiders and they are; “Arm strength and good overall conditioning”. It means the workout was “largely considered a positive” and we wait for what happens next.

Jeremy Fowler’s tweet reads;

Was told two things stood out in Colin Kaepernick’s workout with Raiders: Arm strength and good overall conditioning. Workout was largely considered a positive. Let’s see where it goes from here.

According to TPS;

Kaepernick hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season when he opted out of his contract when the new regime led by coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to go a different direction at quarterback.

Kaepernick never got another opportunity even to work out for NFL teams as he alleged he had been blackballed over his protests during the anthem the previous season. He met with Seattle and had informal talks with Baltimore but never got a closer look.

Owner Mark Davis has publicly said he would back his coaches if they wanted to take a look at Kaepernick, and first-year coach Josh McDaniels is doing just that.

The Raiders don’t have a glaring need at quarterback after signing starter Derek Carr to an extension last month, but adding Kaepernick could provide a weapon for them if needed.

Kaepernick emerged as one of the league’s young stars when he took over as starter in San Francisco in 2012, and helped the Niners reach the Super Bowl that season.

His last year in 2016 saw him throw 16 TD passes and four interceptions in 12 games, while posting a 90.7 passer rating.

The Raiders have trash backup QBs like most of the backups in the NFL. You can believe that Kaepernick might not be a good starter in the NFL, especially after 5 years out of the league, but there is no question he is better than most backup QBs who are still collecting a check from the NFL.
