Tennessee reportedly did not have interest.
Colin Kaepernick’s representatives reportedly reached out to the Tennessee Titans, expressing interest in a potential signing, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.
The Titans, though, reportedly did not have interest in signing the free agent quarterback.
Kaepernick was reportedly hoping to be one of the quarterbacks Tennessee worked out with starter Marcus Mariota injured.
Kaepernick remains focused on playing in the NFL again and is working out daily in hopes of achieving that goal, according to sources with knowledge of the situation, which was conveyed to Titans brass last week after starting quarterback Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday. Tennessee officials were contacted and made aware of Kaepernick’s fitness level, his regimen and his desire to work out for the team, but sources said the matter was unable to advance. Kaepernick’s agents have been diligent about contacting teams whenever any quarterback injuries have occurred, but as of yet no team has been willing to let the former Super Bowlquarterback work out for them.
The Titans ended up signing veteran backup Brandon Weeden. They also reportedly worked out T.J. Yates, Matt Barkley and Matt McGloin.
Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey told reporters that the franchise didn’t have interest in Kaepernick because he wasn’t familiar with their system.
Kaepernick has reportedly had zero contract discussions with any team.
