But... "...even if it costs you everything". Guess not.
Peterman got signed by the Raiders because Gruden was in love with him in college.
I’ll be working at NASA before this guys a patriot
Interesting as an agent starts an uncorroborated rumor and it somehow becomes a full blown story without any commentary by the Patriots.. age and style of play are huge factors that will influence if he does get signed. It is the offseason any way to generate interest in Kaepernik is good publicity for him...
Wrong. Collusion is if 32 teams got together and came to a mutual agreement to not sign him. If 32 teams decided each on their own that he would be too much of a distraction and not worth the effort there is no collision. Whether he is better than Nathan Peterman or not has absolutely nothing to do with it.
The NFL settled to make this go away.
Bingo. He’s more talented than Peterman but Peterman isn’t a lightning rod who would bring about a world class media ****storm and instantly alienate roughly half of your fan base who has longer term purchasing power for your goods and services over the Nike fanboys that would temporarily float those sales. Whether they all met at some point and actively colluded against Kaepernick (as opposed to deciding on their own that he’s not talented enough to warrant the above) is EXTEMELY unlikely to ever be proven in court. They’re settling to make this, and Kaepernick, go away.
The Pats do not need this guy. Why is everyone obsessed with putting him on the Pats? Heard the same crap on WEEI this morning. The New England Patriots are not the rehabilitation center of the NFL.
I am just speculating, but perhaps it has to do with Kraft's relationship with Meek Mill? Mind you, I wouldn't know Meek Mill if he was standing right in front of me, nor do I know his music, what he stands for, and why Kraft gives a chit. But perhaps the lawyer for Kap is trying to read the tea leaves and looks at Kraft as a guy that might be sympathetic to Kap's cause? I dunno.
Actually, according to the CBA all it takes is two teams to coordinate to sustain a collusion grievance. He did not have to prove that all 32 were involved. Only 2 (or only 1 plus league office).
What's the chance that one or two owners agreed to give Kap a tryout as part of the settlement? Geregos would know which owners have agreed to do this, so maybe his prediction of Patriots and Seahags is informed.
What’s the relationship between Meek and Kap?
None that I know of, other than I read he's a rapper and activist. The activist thing leads me to think that Kap's lawyers would think that Kraft might be sympathetic to Kap activism.
Putting Kaepernick's sh*tty politics aside, does he have any value as a potential WR (the dude is like 6'4 and 230lbs)? Has anyone ever tried to use him this way before?
Looking at Edelman, the Pats have some history of success converting QB's to WR's.
First of all, I doubt very much Kaep is still 230 pounds.
Secondly, as far as I know only one player in NFL history has converted to WR after significant time as an NFL QB: Terrelle Pryor. Other than him, every convert switches at the college level or when they enter the NFL.
To answer your question: no, Kaep is not going to be an NFL WR.
Kraft "gives a chit" because he's funding SJW garbage that Meek Mill is a part of. Kaepernick falls under the same category. Kraft is as socially liberal as it gets.
Sign Kap, Dynasty ends.
I want absolutely no part of that dude or his 'Jihad Jane' girlfriend.
Ok, I'll take it on your word that the CBA states it that way, but realistically that isn't true collusion. Of course we all know that the CBA doesn't necessarily reflect reality.
Peterman also was willing to accept what the Raiders had available for a back-up, emergency QB while Kap wanted starter money. It's like buying a car, I know a Ferrari is the better car, but I can only afford a '98 Plymouth.
