Once it became clear that the current supply of potential starting quarterbacks might not meet demand, Colin Kaepernick became more visible than he had been when it came to his desire to play football. Now, a coach who has been working with Kaepernick says NFL teams are reacting.

“A few teams have contacted me and asked what his arm looked like,” private trainer David Robinson told TMZ.com. “They approached and asked about him.”

Robinson said “at least” five teams have contacted him.

Kapernick, who last played in the NFL on Jan. 1, 2017, has been training at various locations for the past few weeks. He has been joined in at least one workout by Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett.

“[Kaepernick] definitely has the ability to play on somebody’s roster,” Robinson told TMZ.com. “A couple of the guys that were in the session that were on NFL teams were saying his arm is as strong as the guys we have on our roster right now and they can play.”

Any team can bring Kaepernick in for a workout, anytime. In five years, no one has. The Seahawks came the closest, hosting Kaepernick for a visit in the summer of 2017.

The current problem may be that each practice is reported to the league and, in turn, to the public. No team wants immediate pushback from a vocal minority of the fan base for simply flirting with Kaepernick.

So while five or 10 or 15 or 32 teams may ask about Kaepernick, none of it matters until someone actually finds out and signs him. There is still no reason to believe that anyone will. As explained above, the fact that Kaepernick was successfully shunned by NFL teams for five years now makes it much easier to ignore him.
