Even though it’s been more than five years since he played in the NFL, Colin Kaepernick is still looking for a chance to compete in the league once again.
The former San Francisco 49ers QB has been staying in shape and waiting for his chance to come with an NFL team for some time now. Many have speculated that this chance would come with the Seahawks, with whom Kaepernick has been in contact this offseason.
Kaepernick on if Seahawks have said they'll bring him in for a workout: 'Not yet. Still waiting for that chance. Still hopeful. ... still hoping that door is open and get a chance to walk through it.''— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) March 23, 2022
As Bob Condotta’s tweet states, Kaepernick conducted a workout with Seahawks receiver Aaron Fuller in the Seattle area on Wednesday. It was the second time Kaepernick worked out with a Seahawks received this offseason, having thrown the ball to Tyler Lockett and Lockett’s brother recently.

What are your thoughts?⬇️
“I’ll put something in [Carroll and Schneider’s] ear,” Fuller said after the workout. “I think T-Lock (Lockett) did a little bit too.”
For what it’s worth, John Schneider didn’t commit either way as far as signing him.
Asked if Kaepernick is an option, Schneider didn't give a yes or no. Said roster building is year-round and that there are three buckets of available QBs: FAs, trade candidates, draft picks. Noted that Kaepernick differs from other FAs in that he hasn't played in several years.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) March 24, 2022
Kaepernick appears to be in NFL shape, and with the Seahawks having questions at the quarterback position recently, I don’t see why the Seahawks don’t at least bring him in for a tryout to see what he’s got. They need all the help they can get at the position at this point.
