Colin Kaepernick's time away from the field may finally be coming to an end.
During an interview with TMZ, Kaepernick's attorney, Mark Geragos, admitted the quarterback could return to the league soon and hinted at the Raiders and Patriots. Geragos, did say there would be news next week, so even if he led everyone on a wild goose chase, teams are kicking the tires on the former NFC champion.
The second clue that was given out about the Patriots was a little more obscure as he referenced team owner Robert Kraft a bit more vaguely as mentioned him as the person who visited rapper Meek Mill while he was still in prison.
When Gregagos was further pressed by the interviewer, who alluded to a possible signing with the Miami Dolphins, Gergagos suggested there are two teams who may be considering signing the athlete. Courtesy of Raiders Beat, Geragos commented: "I'll say this ... if Al Davis was still alive". This comes after Al's son Mark Davis - owner of the Raiders - told TMZ earlier this month that he supported Nike's decision to sign Kaepernick and make him the center of its latest campaign.
Does this mean the Patriots have expressed interest in signing Kaepernick?
Kaepernick is undoubtedly familiar with the Bay Area from his six-season run as the starter of the San Francisco 49ers, and Oakland's current backup is A.J. McCarron.
This could all be hyperbole by Geragos, but there's no reason why Kaepernick couldn't get a job with his public image gaining positive momentum behind Nike's backing.
News on Colin Kaepernick's possible return to the National Football League could be coming as soon as next week.
Moreover, Geragos revealed that Kap and his girl, Hot 97's Nessa, are not boycotting the NFL.
