Quincy Avery has worked with quite a few talented signal callers during his time as a private quarterbacks coach, including names like Deshaun Watson, Dwayne Haskins, Jalen Hurts, Justin Fields and Trey Lance.

Earlier this week, the 35-year-old coach added Colin Kaepernick to that list.

Avery believes that the former San Francisco starter still has the talent to land on an NFL roster in 2022.

"Had the opportunity to hit the field with @Kaepernick7 I also get the opportunity to work with a ton of NFL quarterbacks and with his talent he should have him on an NFL roster," he wrote on Twitter.

Kaepernick, who hasn't played in an NFL game since Jan. 1, 2017, is gunning for a comeback in the 2022 season. Though several teams are in need of quarterback depth this offseason, the 34-year-old QB has not received a single workout so far.

Like Kaepernick, Avery has long been an outspoken advocate for racial equality and social justice. His commitment to training young Black quarterbacks with his "Quarterback Takeover" program aligns perfectly with Kaepernick's attempted NFL comeback.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll mentioned potential interest in Kaepernick earlier this offseason, but it now seems that interest has passed.

Do you think Kaepernick should be on a roster in 2022?
