Colin Kaepernick back with the 49ers?

During this offseason, there was much speculation about the possible return of quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the NFL, this Sunday, December 4, the former San Francisco 49ers player still has not returned to the gridiron, but an unexpected circumstance could give him a rematch precisely in the place where it all started for him at the professional level.

During the 49ers' Week 13 win over the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo fractured his right ankle and is expected to miss the rest of the season, so San Francisco has been forced to use Brock Purdy, the Mr. Irrelevant from this year's Draft.

Will the 49ers trust Brock Purdy?

Purdy's lack of NFL experience, coupled with the fact that the team has been without star Trey Lance since Week 2 due to a terrible injury, means that head coach Kyle Shanahan's team could find itself in the need to sign a free agent, since the deadline for changes has already passed a long time ago.

It should be recalled that Kaepernick played in the NFL from 2011 to 2016 always with the 49ers, with whom he reached Super Bowl XLVII which he lost against the Baltimore Ravens, however, precisely in his last year he led a protest against police brutality against blacks in the United States by kneeling during the singing of the National Anthem.

What does Kyle Shanahan think of Colin Kaepernick?

In 2020, just Kyle Shanahan referred to the case of Kaepernick, who is believed to have been unofficially placed by all owners in a position of not being able to be hired precisely because of his racial protests.

"It's three years later, and there's still some people not understanding what his message was," Shanahan said of Kaepernick. "And, regardless, that's too many people not understanding the message that everyone's been giving for a long time. And Colin did it the strongest out of anybody, and people should respect him a ton for that and admire that."
