Why won't Browns take a chance on Colin Kaepernick?

Why won't Browns take a chance on Colin Kaepernick?

The most likely explanation is the political firestorm Kaepernick started by refusing to stand for the National Anthem and the reasons he supplied for his decision.

It makes sense on multiple fronts that Lee would campaign the New York Jets to take on Kaepernick. NY badly needs a QB and the former Niners star is familiar with offensive coordinator John Morton, having worked together in the past.

Kaepernick, 29, the longtime man-under-center for the San Francisco 49ers is now a free agent and has been unable to score a new contract with another team.

The Mercury News also reported Kaepernick is spending the offseason training in NY and continuing to engage in social activism.

When it comes to the Jets' salary cap space, the team does still have some money to spend in free agency, or more specifically, on a new quarterback.

"(Kaepernick) was, in everyone's mind in this league, very close to signing a deal with a team at a really good number and it fell through, apparently", John Lynch said. During that time, Kaepernick posted a 28-30 record as the starting quarterback, finishing his time in San Francisco with an 88.9 quarterback rating.

According to the unidentified general manager, some teams just don't think he could play anymore, and some were afraid of the backlash if they signed him.

"They want nothing to do with him", the GM said. They think he's shot. They think there might be protests or (President Donald) Trump will tweet about the team. But Lynch says they are open to adding him. The football reasons are undeniable; at the quarterback position, the supply doesn't meet demand - especially given the trade demands of teams that have quarterbacks they'd be willing to move. "I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did", the general manager said during the interview with Bleacher Report.
