I’m a big believer that Colin Kaepernick should have a job. It’s bonkers to me that someone who was starting just last season isn’t even the League right now. There are tons of Quarterbacks that Kaep is way better than in the NFL right now. I’m not saying that he should necessarily start; but he should definitely have a job.
The Miami Dolphins are not that team. Not every team is a good fit for him, and this is a unique situation. The QBs that were brought up besides Cutler were apparently Tim Tebow and Kyle Orton (both of whom are worse that Kaep). However, the common thread between Cutler, Tebow, and Orton is a familiarity with Dolphins’ Head Coach, Adam Gase. If it weren’t for that relationship, I think that Kaep could be a fit, but I think there are better jobs out there for him.
The Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts are two teams that should have already signed him. Both have playoff-caliber teams and are missing their starting QB. Even if you just have Kaep play until Luck or Flacco returns, it puts you in a way better position than Scott Tolzien or Ryan Mallet would.
Teams are going to blow their entire season because they’re stubborn and ignorant. Just amazing to me.
