Colin Kaepernick Says He Is Ready For His NFL Return

Colin Kaepernick stood up for what he believed in by kneeling during the national anthem. It was an act of defiance to raise awareness for racial inequality, social injustice, and police brutality. That ‘stand’ has cost him the last three years in the NFL, but despite the time away, Kaepernick says he is ready for his return to football.

Three Years Ago

The last time Kaepernick played in the NFL was in the 2016 season for the San Francisco 49ers. Although he has been out of the game, the quarterback says he isn’t ready to give up on his football career. After being frozen out of the league, Kaepernick is ready to make his comeback and put the last three years behind him.

Still Ready

The former 49ers quarterback recently sent out a tweet that read “5 am. 5 days a week. For 3 years. Still Ready.” Along with his inspiring words came a video where he was working out in the gym. The quarterback appears to be in great shape and is looking close to his last billed 230 lbs weight, according to the 49ers.

The Time Has Come

Colin Kaepernick was due to have a trial with the Seahawks in 2018, but that was reportedly canceled by the franchise because the quarterback wouldn’t disclose if he planned to kneel. After all, it has been the reason why he was cut from the league in the first place, and what allegedly kept him out since. Kaepernick filed a lawsuit and reached a settlement with the NFL over his claims teams colluded to keep him out of the league because of his activism.

Considering his talents and free-agent status, Kaepernick’s serious commitment to a comeback could benefit one lucky NFL by bringing his skills back to the league.
