Colin Kaepernick's Lawyer Speculates Panthers and Patriots Could Sign Former 49ers QB

According to Vox, a settlement doesn't force the NFL to sign either player to a team (Reid now plays for the Panthers) but NFL Player Association rules could get Kaepernick a "financial award amounting to roughly double what he would have made if he had stayed in the league".

Colin Kaepernick's attorney Mark Geragos predicted his client will sign a contract with either the Carolina Panthers or the New England Patriots.

Kaepernick played with the 49ers from 2013 to 2017, when he severed his contract with the team to become a free agent.

It's only been a handful of days since Kaep and the National Football League agreed to a settlement, but that's more than enough time for us to start thinking about where the former Pro Bowl signal caller could end up. Geragos also told the network he couldn't comment on anything regarding the settlement because it includes a confidentiality agreement.

Kaepernick also claimed that the NFL owners had conspired together to deny him a plum league position until he agreed to stop protesting, and that league owners were responding directly to President Donald Trump's universal condemnation of NFL players' anti-racism demonstrations by ending Kaepernick's official relationship with the NFL.

The NFL Players Association supported the decision by Kaepernick and Reid despite not knowing exact details of the settlement.

"He wants to compete at the highest level", Geragos said of Kaepernick. "The natural would be if Cam Newton is out, then the natural place would be to play with Eric (Reid) in Carolina".

"I think you're going to see within the next two weeks that somebody's going to step up, somebody's going to do the right thing", Geragos said, according to CNN's Jill Martin.

Kaepernick's lawyer Mark Geragos believes so and has pointed out a pair of landing spots he believes are likely.

"I will tell you that besides the Panthers, it would not surprise me if [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft makes a move", Geragos said, adding that "it would not surprise me if his former coach. also makes a move". "That would not surprise me". Few of Kaepernick's former coaches make sense, though he could be referring to one of Kraft's ex-employees: Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who coached the Patriots under Kraft from 1997 to 1999.

He is known for controversially kneeling during the national anthem during games, which he said is to protest against "racial injustice and systematic oppression in the country".
