Mark Geragos spoke with CNN a day after Kaepernick and Eric Reid reached a settlement with the NFL concerning their collusion grievances against the league.
Geragos said he spoke with Kaepernick on Saturday about his desire to play.
“I think you’re going to see … within the next two weeks that somebody is going to step up and do the right thing, and you want me to predict who?”

“Besides the Panthers, it would not surprise me if [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft makes a move.”
Geragos called the Panthers a “natural place” for Kaepernick to be, especially if quarterback Cam Newton struggles to return from offseason arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

“He wants to compete at the highest level,” Geragos said of Kaepernick. “This is a competitive young man.”
Kaepernick has not been with an NFL team since severing his contract with the 49ers in March 2017.
Now that the collusion case is behind him, will an NFL team really want the baggage that is Colin Kaepernick?
We will see.
But if they blackballed him and paid him out, are they now allowed to legally continue the blackballing?
All great questions.
