Colin Kaepernick might not have gotten a contract offer from any National Football League franchise over the past three seasons, but he’s still not giving up on his dreams to return to the league.
Kaepernick, who believes that the NFL has systemically decided to keep him out of the league after his controversial statements on race and American society, tweeted a motivational video illustrating his desire to return to the league.
The quarterback claims to have been waking up at 5 o’clock in the morning to train five days a week for the past three years ever since being let go by the San Francisco 49ers. Despite leading the Niners to a Super Bowl appearance against the Baltimore Ravens back in 2013 and years of solid production, he has been unable to find another shot in the world’s best football league.
The 31-year-old quarterback has thrown 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in his NFL career with an impressive 60% completion percentage. He’s known for his strong arm and his mobility while running.
Only time will tell if Kaepernick will get another shot to play in the NFL, but he certainly appears to have been doing his part to find another chance to be under center in the pros again.
