Every team in the league has the opportunity to attend a workout from the embattled QB. Should the Colts even attend the workout?
Colin Kaepernick is one of the most polarizing figures in the sport of football. He hasn’t been in the NFL in the last three years. While he was in the league, he had some really nice success. In fact, he took the 49ers to the Super Bowl, even though they ended up losing.
But he has been out of the league awhile and has been trying to get back in. Last night, it was announced that the league had set up a workout for Kaepernick on Saturday that every team could attend if they wanted. Should the Colts even attend the meeting?
From a strictly football standpoint, it might be worthwhile. The Colts are in need of a decent backup quarterback after the debacle Brian Hoyer had last week. Being out of the league as long as he has been, it wouldn’t be smart for someone to give him a starting job.
But a backup job? That is realistic. If he ends up playing with some of the talent he had before, he could be one of the best backups in the league. He could eventually play his way back into a starter role for a lower level team. But first he needs a job from someone.
Obviously the biggest question is whether or not the media attention would be worth giving him a backup job. The Colts would be set at the quarterback position with him and Jacoby Brissett, but there would be a media circus around the team the rest of the year.
Attending the meeting shouldn’t hurt anything. But it will be interesting to see if the Colts even entertain the idea.
