Could Colin Kaepernick’s aspiration to return to the NFL be one step closer?
Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback, seems to be taking concrete steps towards a potential comeback in football.
Kaepernick faced criticism from NFL fans for declining an opportunity to play quarterback in the XFL, as his focus appears to be on a return to the NFL.
Recently, Kaepernick sent a letter to the New York Jets following Aaron Rodgers’ injury. While head coach Robert Saleh swiftly entrusted former No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson with the quarterback position, there was much speculation about how the Jets might address the vacancy left by Rodgers.
Rapper J. Cole shared a letter penned by Kaepernick, addressed to Jets general manager Joe Douglas, in which Kaepernick expressed his willingness to join their practice squad.
However, it appears that the Jets are not the only team on Kaepernick’s radar.
Colin Kaepernick has garnered the interest of Mark Davis, the president of the Las Vegas Raiders. Kaepernick was recently seen in the company of the Raiders’ president, sparking speculation about the team’s potential interest in his services.

Kaepernick’s last NFL appearance was on January 1, 2017. Although he had a workout with the Raiders in May 2022, no immediate outcome materialized from it.
While it remains uncertain whether Kaepernick is currently under consideration by any NFL teams, his case for a return is now publicly available for all to see.
The Raiders are currently grappling with a three-game losing streak.
