The Cowboys are in the market for a backup quarterback, but Colin Kaepernick isn’t a name they’ll have any interest in.
ESPN’s Todd Archer recently floated Kaepernick’s name as one that would fit what the Cowboys are in search of behind Dak Prescott:
There has been plenty of discussion across the league about Colin Kaepernick not having a job yet. I asked around on Kaepernick, and the answer was, “Not a fit.” Why not? There would not be a significant investment required to sign him. His game would seem to be more in line with what Prescott does than what Moore does. Of course, Moore has the blessings of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, so that helps. Kaepernick went 1-10 last year with the San Francisco 49ers, but he had 16 touchdown passes and four interceptions. Kaepernick is still young enough and has big-game experience.
So if Kaepernick is an athletic fit for what the Cowboys like to do at quarterback, would their lack of interest have anything to do with his controversial protest? That seems unlikely.
On today’s edition of CowboysCast, we break down why the Cowboys’ lack of interest in Kaepernick has a much simpler answer.
