Should Colin Kaepernick join the AAF?

The AAF season is in full swing, and many forgotten college football players and practice squad washouts are getting a second chance to play professional football. But one allegedly blacklisted NFL quarterback could use a shot as well. Colin Kaepernick would bring a lot of media attention to the new league and get another chance to play football again. Still, like in the NFL, Kaepernick could be a distraction and the league might be hesitant to take such a risk so early in its existence. What do you think? 🏈

Any press is good press for a new sports league. Colin Kaepernick would certainly bring headlines.

The former NFL quarterback has been languishing on the free agent market for a while. If being a quarterback is important to him, the AAF is a new league looking for talent to bring them to the next level. Kaepernick took the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl and that's the kind of talent the AAF needs. The "distraction" and "political" talk might upset some people, but at least they would know the league regardless if they watch or not.

He should be on an AAF roster no matter what.

There's a reason Colin Kaepernick is not playing on an NFL roster and the AAF doesn't want any of that smoke.

The AAF is still early in its existence. Causing a stir could be disastrous for the league's development, especially if people stop watching because of a polarizing quarterback. Kaepernick is already 31 years old and there's no reason for any league to take a risk on a player who offers no assurances of performing well.

Kaep doesn't need to be in the AAF.
