Colin Kaepernick Refuses To Give Up On The NFL

Never give up on your dreams kids. 

Despite receiving little to no interest from the NFL's 32 teams, Colin Kaepernick is sticking to a strict NFL caliber regiment to keep himself field ready just in case his agent calls him with an offer.

And despite not taking a professional snap in 5 years, Kaepernick says he's ready to return. 

Kaepernick is known as one of the first NFL players to take a knee during the American national anthem, opening the door for fellow players to do the same. 

Kaepernick is only 33 years old and entered free agency in 2016. 

None of the NFLs 32 teams want to take a chance on Kaepernick. He accepted a settlement from the NFL after being blackballed, but that didn't douse his fire to compete. 

In an interview with Ebony Magazine, to be released in November, Kaepernick revealed his intense exercise schedule:

"I'm still up at 5a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I'm prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again" 

Kaepernick says his dedication to this workout routine and training highlights the true nature of the NFL and their refusal to welcome him back to the league. 

While the league might've neglected Kaepernick, EA Sports certainly hasn't. 

Not only is Colin Kaepernick in Madden 22, he holds an 81 overall average, which is a higher score than half of the quarterbacks in the NFL. There are only 14 quarterbacks ranked higher than Kaepernick in the game. 

This is Kaepernick's first appearance in Madden in 4 years. 

In his last NFL season, Kaepernick lost 10 of 11 starts with the 49ers and completed under 60% of his passes, but his passer rating of 90.7 was the third highest of his career.

And while no NFL team is currently interested in Kaepernick, Netflix certainly is. 

"Colin in Black & White" will show Kaepernick's formative years as a black child adopted by a white family. It premiers later this month.
