Frankly, I'd love to see Kaepernick come in, if he's good enough.
"Only if he's good enough".
Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick should be employed by an National Football League team, President Donald Trump told reporters outside of the White House on Friday.
Kaepernick released a video earlier this week saying: "5 a.m. 5 days a week. If he's good enough, he will be in".
Behind the deeply personal mission to bring Vietnam War vet's remains home

Major power failures affect trains, airports across UK

Dozens killed as fuel tanker explodes in Tanzania
Firefighters fro Tanzania People's Defence Force (TPDF) and Fire Brigade have since been carrying out a rescue operation. Residents are routinely killed by explosions while stealing fuel from incapacitated tankers in East Africa.
The 31-year-old became mired in controversy following his decision in 2016 to kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice.
Kaepernick has not been hired by any of the league's teams since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017, settling a collusion lawsuit against the NFL six months ago. Nick Foles led Philadelphia to four playoff wins in two years and was 2018 Super Bowl MVP, but signed an $88 million, four-year deal with Jacksonville in free agency.
Granted, it's understandable that teams wouldn't want the supposed "media circus" that would accompany Kaepernick, or - more specifically - the bullhorn-blast of a presidential tweet raining social-media hellfire down on them. The NFL has largely recovered from whatever Trump-inflicted damage hit the NFL in the wake of 2017's protest battles - ratings are back up, nobody's burning any jerseys - but risk-averse teams surely aren't eager to relive those days when an entire swath of the nation declared the NFL one of many Enemies of the People. Sudfeld was scheduled for surgery, but coach Doug Pederson said it's not a season-ending injury and the team was content with No. 3 quarterback Cody Kessler and rookie Clayton Thorson.
Kapernick inspired other players to join his protests, including his then-49ers teammate Eric Reid, who also filed a similar grievance against the NFL.
