Colin Kaepernick hasn't played in the National Football League since 2016, but the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is hoping to make a comeback.

The veteran NFL quarterback has been working out with various players across the country this spring, hoping to get a chance with a team.

Earlier this month, Kaepernick worked out with another NFL quarterback in Justin Fields. The Chicago Bears quarterback spoke highly of Kaepernick. “That was actually my first time meeting him,” Fields said. “It was cool meeting him, of course. He’s an icon. It was awesome just to meet him and work with him. He looked pretty good. He looked good, yeah.”

Kaepernick has been receiving support from players across the league. Perhaps that will convince a team to take a shot on him.

The ex-NFL quarterback is open to a backup role, even.

Fans are split, though. "Sadly this situation is a lose lose for any team. First off, he compared the NFL to a plantation and it's players are slaves on said plantation. Secondly, if a team signs and then decides to cut him it instantly becomes a racial issue. No owner/GM wants that on their team," one fan tweeted. "Colin Kaepernick will be on an NFL roster this year," another fan predicted.

Where do you see Kaepernick landing - if anywhere?
