Munich – At the end of training, Colin Kaepernick unpacked one more. He got the pass, but then he knew that things were going pretty well for him at the time.
Not just since the brief appearance in front of scouts at halftime at the University of Michigan Spring Game. He will know that he has done a lot in recent weeks to get another chance in the NFL. He can’t do more at the moment.
Above all, he received a lot of support, the most recent training being organized by his former NFL coach, Jim Harbaugh.
It’s still a rocket arm
During the week he had already trained with university players. “He still has a rocket arm and he can throw the ball hard. He’s always been extremely respectful to me,” Wolverines quarterback Cade McNamara said.
Now Kaepernick has to do what he has been doing for the last five years: wait.
The problem: Apart from the rumors, lots of praise and encouragement, the performances of the last few weeks have not contributed anything. Because a lot of warm words are nice, but they don’t replace what Kaepernick has wanted for years: a new opportunity.
But the 34-year-old, who last played in an NFL game on Jan. 1, 2017, continues to do everything in his power to make the spectacular comeback a reality. Not even with words.
So he had another message for NFL teams.
“I can help you become a better team, I can help you win games,” Kaepernick said on WXYZ Detroit. “I know the situation right now probably won’t allow me to come in and take the starting role, but I know I’ll be able to break through and prove it very quickly.” In other words, he would also be satisfied with the backup role.
Are you still at the level of the NFL? “Definitely”
He reiterated that he would like to have the opportunity to show himself face to face in a training session organized by the team. “I’d love to sit down with you and talk to you about how I can help you become a better team,” she said.
He also had a clear answer to the question every GM and head coach asks. He was asked if he felt he could still compete at the NFL level.
He revealed that his agent is repeatedly asked if Kaepernick can still deliver after a five-year break. “Definitely,” Kaepernick said. “I came here to show that I can still play and throw the ball.”
He emphasizes that he has great objectives.
And he also verbally spells out one more: “We want to find a way to open a door, for this to be a way to be back, to get a starting position and to lead a team to a title.”
