Colin Kaepernick's Lawyer Speculates Panthers and Patriots Could Sign Former 49ers QB

Colin Kaepernick's Lawyer Speculates Panthers and Patriots Could Sign Former 49ers QB

He said that the Panthers and the Patriots could make a play for the quarterback.

Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid jointly announced Friday, Feb. 15, they have settled a complaint claiming football team owners colluded to keep them out of the NFL because they had protested by kneeling during the pregame playing of the National Anthem. "The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party".

Geragos thinks the most natural fit for Kaepernick is the Carolina Panthers.

Colin Kaepernick and his former teammate, Eric Reid, have reached a settlement in their suit against the NFL.

The 30-year-old has been without a team since opting out of his 49ers contract in March 2017. 'This is a competitive young man'.

Which other coach he is referring to remains to be seen but Vic Fangio was the 49ers defensive coordinator when Kaepernick was in San Francisco so he could be an option and Greg Roman was the team's offensive coordinator in that same year, so the Broncos or Ravens could be possibilities.

It pretty much put things into perspective that the league knew Kaepernick's lawyers had some hard evidence on them, so it was best to pay them off and not let it go to court.

In a statement released on the Twitter account of attorney Mark Geragos, the law firm dealing with Kaepernick's legal action against the National Football League said the two sides have come to terms without indicating what those terms were.

But it could also mean that Kaepernick, who has signed a deal with Nike in the wake of being ignored by the NFL for two seasons, might yet return to the league.

The Panthers, meanwhile, are also in need of a strong quarterback, as current QB Cam Newton's status is unknown following his January shoulder surgery.

Former Patriots defensive coordinators Matt Patricia and Brian Flores are now head coaches of the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins, respectively. Earlier in the interview, Geragos mentioned the Seahawks, saying "Seattle was probably the only place that talked to him" after Kaepernick left the 49ers in the 2017 offseason.

The Super Bowl champion Patriots are an unlikely destination for Kaepernick, having Tom Brady at quarterback and a conservative owner.
