Colin Kaepernick's Attorney Hints Towards Raiders & Patriots' Interest

San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York said he supported Colin Kaepernick's right to demonstrate during the national anthem

San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York said he supported Colin Kaepernick's right to demonstrate during the national anthem

As evidenced by the spike in Nike sales after Kaepernick became the face of the company's recent campaign, adding him to any team's roster could be in their best financial interest. After all, Brady is 41 years old and while Brian Hoyer (32) is a solid backup, the appeal of bringing in the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is understandable.

Approached by TMZ, Mark Geragos, the lawyer for free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, seemingly hinted that the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots are interested in making a move for his client.

"I will just say stay tuned, that next week there may be some news", Gregagos told TMZ.

"I'll say this ... if Al Davis was still alive", he said, not quite finishing the thought there.

The second hint dropped by Geragos, while a stretch, seemingly connected Kap to the Patriots by way of owner Robert Kraft. "I've got two other teams that will remain nameless".

If that means the Raiders are potentially interested in Kaepernick, it's somewhat believable.

It goes without saying that Jon Gruden and the Raiders need to find a clear-cut answer at quarterback behind Derek Carr.

Geragos was asked by TMZ if his client was keeping abreast of National Football League action this season, to which he responded "Yes" without divulging too many of Colin Kaepernick's safely guarded secrets.

While it's highly unlikely any team would sign Kaepernick at this point, the Patriots certainly seem the least likely.

This could all be hyperbole by Geragos, but there's no reason why Kaepernick couldn't get a job with his public image gaining positive momentum behind Nike's backing.

Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in 12 games in 2016.
