Colin Kaepernick: when, not where does he sign?

New, comments

He will get a job, eventually... right?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
yes that is one way to avoid throwing it to richard sherman

It’s getting too hard to predict where Colin Kaepernick will land. So we’ll try our thousands of hands at when he lands.

Because the man will get paid to play football. It’s just a matter of when, not if. (It is a matter of when, not if, right?)

You know when. Not you, individually. The larger you. Crowds are right. They work. Their wisdom works. All the time.

Put that success rate to work!

It’s more than just Kaep’s image and peaceful anthem protest that are complicating the present situation. We don’t know how much he’s asking for in negotiations. We don’t know if he wants starter money, backup money, or if he wants to wait until the right situation comes along. We don’t even truly know in how good of shape he is at this point. We don’t know which teams have written him off without talking to him and which teams would recalibrate their offers out of desperation when the injury asshole strikes again.

Together, though, maybe our ignorance can turn into wisdom.
