Colin Kaepernick hasn’t been in the NFL since the 2016 season, but the former second-round pick is eyeing a return to the league.
Earlier this month, XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck revealed why the newest football league didn’t sign Kaepernick. The main reason was because Kaepernick’s salary demands were reportedly “exorbitant.”
Kaepernick nearly worked out for NFL scouts back in November. However, the location of the meeting was changed because he wanted transparency. Although many thought it was his final chance to be a professional quarterback again, he’s not ready to give up on that dream.
“My desire to play football is still there. I still train five days a week,” Kaepernick said. “I’m ready to go, I’m ready for a phone call, tryout, workout at any point in time. I hope I get a call this offseason.”
