Harry Edwards, a sociologist who has been an adviser to Colin Kaepernick, tells Jarrett Bell of USA Today that three teams have contacted him about Kaepernick since free agency opened in March.
“They’ve asked, ‘Can he play? Does he want to play?’ “ Edwards said. “The last question I can’t answer. The first question, absolutely. If Kaep makes up his mind, he wouldn’t only go in and make a team, he’d put pressure on somebody to start.”
However, Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab, refuted the claims on her Twitter account:
