Former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been away from the football field since 2016. Last month, Kaepernick worked out with the Las Vegas Raiders. Well, there are few details of the workout available, but the Raiders have still not signed the deal with the star QB.
Recently, legendary quarterback Michael Vick known for his straightforward comments came to support Kaepernick. Vick thinks Kaepernick still has the qualities of a good quarterback and will be back soon in the game.

The quarterback rushing yards leader, Vick said, “I think it will happen in due time. He’s been out of the league a couple of years and he hasn’t played in a long time, it’d probably be smart to just come in a backup role, and just play that backup role for two or three years. And, when you get an opportunity to start, you show that you can play. You win a series of games. You win five or six games.”
While many think that Kaepernick’s workout with the Raiders was not up to the mark, Vick sees a ray of hope in Kaepernick. He thinks the Raiders might seek Kaepernick to play as backup to the Las Vegas Raiders‘ starting QB Derek Carr.
