Collusion Case Reveals NFL Teams Do View Kaepernick as a Starter

The ongoing collusion case against the NFL which was brought by Colin Kaepernick has revealed multiple NFL teams believed the quarterback was good enough to start in the league in 2017.

Citing a source with knowledge of the situation, ProFootballTalk reports that some teams continue to believe Kaepernick can be an NFL starter.

That finding came to light during the case thanks to free-agency evaluation documents that were used as evidence and testimony from witnesses during the litigation process.

Despite that information, it remains uncertain if Kaepernick can prove teams and the league office have been coordinating their efforts to keep him off the field thanks to his ties to the national anthem protests.

“Whether coordination can or can’t be proven, the collusion case will conclusively prove one thing, regardless of whether anyone wants to believe it: Multiple teams believed that Colin Kaepernick was still good enough to play after becoming a free agent more than a year ago,” according to ProFootballTalk. “Which means that, at least as to Kaepernick, the notion that teams make decisions based only on trying to win football games doesn’t hold water.”
