NFL commissioner Roger Goodell held his annual State of the League address in Atlanta on Wednesday, and it shouldn't surprise many that more questions were raised than answered at his news conference.

While the main focus was on his statement for the missed penalty in the NFC Championship between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints, Goodell also dove into the issue surrounding Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick has been out of the league for two full seasons now, as it becomes clear that franchises are steering away from the dual-threat quarterback.

However, Goodell believes the former 49ers signal-caller could return to the NFL, saying "If a team decides that Colin Kaepernick or any other player can help their team win, that’s what they’ll do."

Check out his entire message about Kaepernick:

Although Goodell tried to sound like he is fully past all the controversy surrounding Kaepernick, Terrell Owens sees right through these comments that were made on Wednesday. Owens went on Twitter to share his thoughts on Goodell's recent stance on teams signing Kaepernick.

This entire issue escalated during the regular season when the Redskins needed to replace Alex Smith and Colt McCoy on the depth chart. Instead of signing Kaepernick for the remainder of the year, the team opted for Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson.

Considering that Kaepernick engaged in legal warfare with the NFL for collusion, these latest remarks from Goodell could just be his version of portraying himself as fair in the eyes of the law.
