Michael Vick isn’t any stranger to NFL quarterbacking controversy, and for that reason and more, his opinion on the longer term of one other newsworthy figure carries weight.
And Vick now counts amongst those that still imagine in Colin Kaepernick’s ability to play within the MFL.
Vick, the previous No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick who began his profession and starred with the Atlanta Falcons, believes that Kaepernick, who hasn’t played within the league since 2016, still has what it takes to be an NFL quarterback – and even a starting quarterback.
“I believe it’ll occur in due time,” Vick said.

Perhaps there are lessons to learn from Vick, who made three Pro Bowls in six years with the Falcons before he pleaded guilty for his involvement in dog fishing and spent 21 months in federal prison. When he returned to the NFL with the Eagles, he won Comeback Player of the 12 months and made a fourth Pro Bowl.
“He’s been out the league a pair years and he hasn’t played in an extended time, it’d probably be smart to only are available in a backup role, and just play that backup role for 2 or three years,” Vick said in a visit with Outkick. “And, while you get a possibility to begin, you show you could play. You win a series of games. You win 5 or 6 games,”
Kaepernick, 34, was essentially drummed out of the NFL because of his political and social positions. The NFL has issued an official policy for a way that happened. Nonetheless, the previous San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl quarterback hasn’t had much of a sniff outside of engaging in a recent workout with the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this offseason. … at the same time as some media outlets suggest he would one way or the other routinely start in some NFL cities, including in Atlanta, over Marcus Mariota and rookie Desmond Ridder.
