Colin Kaepernick talks about new show, desire to play in NFL again in rare interview


Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is pursuing other opportunities, but that doesn’t mean he’s ruled out a return to the NFL. Kaepernick reiterated his desire to continue his NFL career in a rare interview with Ebony.

Kaepernick, 33, hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016. He’s spent the last couple years working with his non-profit group, Know Your Rights Camp, and he’s continued to fight against racial and social injustice.

Kaepernick’s latest project, a Netflix series focusing on his high school years, will bring a new challenge for the quarterback: Acting.

That series, which will air Oct. 29, has taken up a lot of Kaepernick’s time lately, but he still hasn’t given up on returning to the NFL.
