NFL Notes: Colin Kaepernick, Broncos, Eagles, Packers


Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick‘s attorney, Mark Geragos, mentioned during an appearance on “The Adam Carolla Show” that he expects his client to be on an NFL roster in the near future.

I think somebody’s gonna sign him,” Geragos told The Adam Carolla Show. “I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more.”


  • Broncos HC Vance Joseph said that Paxton Lynch will not be in the mix for the starting job this week, simply because he’s only practiced three days. (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • Mike Klis mentions that it would be a “huge surprise” if Brock Osweiler is not the Broncos starting quarterback against the Eagles.


Eagles GM Howie Roseman told reporters on Tuesday that their trade for RB Jay Ajayi won’t impact LeGarrette Blount‘s status with the team and they’re counting on him moving forward.

“LeGarrette’s been productive when he’s gotten the ball,” Roseman said, via “He’s a warrior and he’s a two-time Super Bowl champion, and we’re really glad to have him. I really shouldn’t get into starter roles, that’s really up to the coaches, but we’re counting on LeGarrette here going forward. This is no reflection of any of those running backs, this was a good opportunity for the Philadelphia Eagles to add good players who fit what we do, and we believe that Jay Ajayi does that.

  • Roseman did say that Blount will remain the team’s starter: “We like our running backs. LeGarrette remains our starterIt was a chance to get another good young player on our team.” (Reuben Frank)
  • Roseman added that a big part of the trade was the fact that Ajayi is 24 years old and under contract through next year. (Zach Berman)


Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters on Tuesday that QB Aaron Rodgers (injured reserve, collarbone) is back in Green Bay and attending team meetings.

It’s great to have him back,” McCarthy said, via “Him stepping away and being out of town really helped him deal with his situation. He looks good.”

McCarthy did not, however, offer any updates regarding Rodgers’ timetable to return.
