Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL isn’t over, as coaches, owners and others continue to give depositions in the case. Now we know the Kaepernick wasn’t signed as a free agent in 2017 because he “just wasn’t good enough” is, apparently untrue. 

Via ProFootballTalk, teams not only think Kaepernick is good enough to play quarterback in the league, they think he’s starter material.

“Per a source with knowledge of the situation,” writes Mike Florio, “internal franchise documents generated as part of the free-agency evaluation process and testimony from witnesses harvested via depositions in the collusion litigation has established that teams viewed Kaepernick as being good enough not simply to be employed by an NFL team, but to be a starting quarterback for an NFL team.”  

So this must mean all the NFL teams and owners colluded to not sign him to any contract. Why else would you think someone is a starter, yet every team showed no interest. He was definitely bringing some heavy baggage wherever he landed, but still. He was at one point a great weapon on the field.
