An NFL insider had an update on the status of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick today.

There's been some talk lately about Kaepernick and how he might not be that interested in playing again, but a new report has shot that down.

ProFootballTalk is reporting that Kaepernick, undoubtedly, remains interested in getting back to the NFL.

From the report:

Mike Jones of USA Today reported via tweet on Sunday evening that “people familiar w Kap aren’t even so sure he WANTS to play anymore.” For those people familiar with Kaepernick who aren’t sure he wants to play, know this: He does.

According to a source with direct knowledge of Kaepernick’s mindset and ongoing physical activities and preparation, Kaepernick wants to play. He continues to work out five hours per day, six days per week for one reason and one reason alone. He wants to play.

None of this means he’ll get a chance. With each passing opening for which he isn’t considered, it becomes more and more clear that the phone won’t ring, even after Nike’s decision to align with Kaepernick seemed to be a net positive for the shoe and apparel company and the return of safety Eric Reid to football did not stop the football world from spinning.

There are several teams that could be in need of a quarterback, but it's probably unlikely that any of them would be interested in Kaepernick.

Stay tuned.
