Colin Kaepernick’s rumored NFL return with Raiders has Redditors joking

Free agent Colin Kaepernick has finally received some encouragement to pursue his dream of returning to the NFL. It was revealed yesterday that the Las Vegas Raiders were the first franchise to call out the 34-year-old. The initial phase for his return, training with an NFL team.

Many were excited by the news and thought Kaepernick deserved his chance after six long years, while others weren’t so excited. NFL fans flooded Reddit to offer their thoughts on the news, with one fan comparing the quarterback’s practice to Usain Bolt’s attempt at a football test game.

The fan said:

“Now it feels like Usain Bolt trains with every football team.”

One user commented that it was no coincidence that the quarterback was trained the same day Jon Gruden was on trial with the NFL.

Another fan said it sucks when a player misses a year or two, but Kaepernick has missed six and that’s longer than most careers.

A user posted on Madden that the 34-year-old is still rated 81, so he must be good.

Another Reddit user said it’s just Tim Tebow’s situation again, but with more politics and races.

This user explained that if the Raiders don’t sign the quarterback, the situation will explode in their faces.

One Reddit user joked that the Derek Carr trade rumors will be back soon.

One Seattle Seahawks fan was glad their franchise was no longer associated with the quarterback.

Another fan posted that they don’t understand the move at all and that the Raiders are desperate for reinforcements.

One fan said it would be serious trolling from the Raiders if they signed the quarterback just to kneel down games.

While there’s no guarantee the quarterback will get a roster spot, it’s a good sign that at least one team is willing to give the 34-year-old a chance. The fact that training went well is encouraging as he is showing his best behavior to return to the NFL.

Whether or not that actually happens for the quarterback, it feels like things are moving in a direction he’s longed for since retiring from the league in 2016. Colin Kaepernick’s rumored NFL return with Raiders has Redditors joking
