Colin Kaepernick’s days in the NFL aren’t over just yet. Recently, Kaepernick’s lawyer hinted at a potential signing over the next week. Although he wouldn’t go into depth with his statement, he has suggested that the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders may be linked to a potential negotiation in the near future.
Now, the odds regarding Kaepernick’s potential NFL return have shifted. Along with the Patriots and the Raiders, the Browns are apparently a favorite among the three teams that would be the most interested. Take a look at the rest of the odds, courtesy of OddsShark.
Although ‘No Team’ is favored at -200, putting money on the Patriots and the Raiders wouldn’t be as large of a gamble as some may think. After all, the Patriots have been known to make some crazy moves over the years. They also do not seem very hesitant with signing a quarterback that comes with a potential media frenzy. Remember Tim Tebow?
As for the Raiders and the Browns, it seems less likely to happen. Recently, a quote from Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has made it’s rounds and it didn’t feel like he was very interested in Kaepernick’s skill set. And while the Browns are always in the conversation for signing quarterback’s who struggle to find a new team, they might be out of the discussion after it seems like they found their guy in the rookie quarterback, Baker Mayfield.
