The New York Jets need a quarterback, at least a backup.
They reportedly signed Trevor Siemian, but he might not be the answer for them.
That’s why former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick reached out to GM Joe Douglas, sending him a letter talking about how honored he would be to serve as their practice squad QB.
He also said that he would be the ultimate low-risk insurance policy, provided Zach Wilson got hurt.
Unfortunately for him, it seems highly unlikely that the Jets — or any other team — will give him another opportunity.
At least, that’s how Stephen A. Smith feels.
In the latest edition of First Take, Smith doubled down on his thoughts about Kaepernick, stating that he was unfairly blackballed by the National Football League, even though he didn’t break any rules or laws when he decided to protest.

However, he also said back in 2019 when Kaepernick didn’t show up to the league-organized workout that it was over for him, and things haven’t changed a bit thus far.
Smith looked at some of the backup QBs from the 2019 season and talked about how Kaepernick would’ve had to be awful not to get a job that day, but he shut that door down by not showing up.
It’s been four years since that day and almost seven since the last time Colin Kaepernick played in an NFL game, and the league has changed a lot.
That means the door could be closed on Kaepernick, this time for good.
