ANN ARBOR, MI - APRIL 02: Colin Kaepernick participates in a throwing exhibition during half time of the Michigan spring football game at Michigan Stadium on April 2, 2022 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

It’s possible that Colin Kaepernick will be returning to the NFL; news broke today that the former San Francisco 49er’s quarterback was asked to work out with the Las Vegas Raiders this week.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the QB participated in a Raiders practice today.

It’s been six years since the former QB played on a professional team after his kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice became a controversial topic nationwide. The last time Kaepernick played professionally was January 1, 2017, for the 49ers.

Schefter also reported that“other teams have pondered” bringing Kaepernick, who threw during the University of Michigan’s spring football game in April, in for a workout.

He has remained a free agent since 2017 and kept working out in hopes of returning to the NFL.
