Former teammate says Colin Kaepernick has not given up on playing

Colin Kaepernick

NFL teams need backup quarterbacks, but Colin Kaepernick’s name isn’t even coming up in rumors anymore.

That is, apparently, not because Kaepernick has given up on playing. Former teammate Eric Reid, now with the Carolina Panthers, is close with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. According to Reid, Kaepernick still works out six days a week and would like to play again.

The Washington Redskins lost Alex Smith to a season-ending injury on Sunday and brought in Mark Sanchez to serve as a backup after working out a group of veteran quarterbacks that didn’t include Kaepernick. To some, it’s evidence that Kaepernick is being blacklisted, especially if he’s still willing to play.
