Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick could potentially make a return to playing football. 

In 2016, Kaepernick kickstarted sporting protests against police brutality and racial inequality in the United States when he knelt for the national anthem.

The former 49ers star filed a grievance against the NFL in the same year, accusing them of colluding to keep him out of the league in the wake of his protests. Kaepernick played his final NFL game on January 1, 2017.

Now the 34-year-old could be set for a return to the league to reignite his career.

He shared a video on Twitter, captioned ‘Still Working’, that shows him training.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter quoted the tweet indicating that Kaepernick is ready to return to football.

Quoting an anonymous source, he writes that the quarterback is “in the best shape of his life”.

“He wants to play, he’s ready to play. He would be a great fit for teams with QB vacancies to fill who want to win a Super Bowl,” he adds.

Mike Florio of NBC Sports, however, believes the “door is closed” for Kaepernick to return to the NFL.
