Colin Kaepernick on Chargers’ ‘Workout List’ But No Current Plans To Bring Him In, Anthony Lynn Says

Despite it having been months since Colin Kaepernick’s impromptu workout that was supposed to land him some interviews with NFL teams and confirm his interest in playing, it seems as though it’s taken a massive societal movement in the country to urge teams to take a look.

A few days ago NFL commissioner Roger Goodell endorsed a team signing Kaep if they so chose, and of course since that day potential landing spots have been circulating. One of the most prominent names that’s been tossed around is the LA Chargers.

Since then, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn has come out and said that Kaepernick is actually on the teams workout list. Lynn told reporters on Wednesday that Colin “definitely fits the style of quarterback for the system we’re going to be running,” 

The Chargers are of course expected to start the season with Tyrod Taylor as their starting QB after veteran Philip Rivers departure to Indianapolis this offseason, and they also picked up Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert in the draft at 6th overall. 

While it is a valiant attempt, Kaepernick’s competition would be stiff, and he may not even have a shot to make the active roster considering the fact that Taylor and Herbert are foregone  conclusions to be the two active quarterbacks on game day.

The Chargers may not be a great landing spot for him, but even some reps or preseason action and camp film could be good for his resume and serve to facilitate a more suitable location, possibly barring an injury or two.
