REPORT: Super agent Drew Rosenhaus thinks controversial QB should get signed

One of the most prominent agents in the National Football League thinks Colin Kaepernick deserves to get another chance to play in the league.


Drew Rosenhaus, who doesn’t represent Kaepernick, told that he thought some team should give the controversial former 49ers quarterback a chance.

“I think he should get signed,” Rosenhaus told “I think he will get signed. It’s really important for the NFL to give him a chance. That would be great for the league at this juncture. I think it would reflect very well on everything that Kaepernick has stood up for over the last several years. He was really ahead of his time with a lot of the things he was saying. If you play many of his interviews years ago, they’re spot on today.”

“Sign him. Bring him to training camp and give him a chance to compete like everybody else. He deserves that. If he is not good enough on the football field — we’ll never know unless he gets a chance,” Rosenhaus continued. “He certainly was forced into retirement in his prime. He’s still young enough in my opinion, even with the time off, that he can still be a very solid player in this league. People should rally around him in the NFL, embrace him right now. One of the 32 teams really needs to step up.

And there would be a reward for stepping up, from off-the-charts jersey sales to an instant nationwide fan base, both of which would more than offset those who like to huff and puff but can’t or won’t blow many houses down.

Kaepernick was protesting the violence by police against African Americans during national anthem throughout the 2016 season, an act that made him a divisive figure and even a talking point during the 2016 presidential campaign. Then candidate Donald Trump often railed against him and other players who followed his lead.

Kaepernick settled a lawsuit out of court with the NFL, after alleging the league colluded against him, preventing him from signing with another team he left the 49ers. He worked out for teams late in 2019, but did not sign or receive an offer.

But following George Floyd’s death, large numbers of people inside and outside of sports appear to have embraced Kaepernick’s cause. Floyd, who was handcuffed, was killed when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck until the 42-year-old lost conscious.

The incident, which was captured on video, sparked outrage that led to protests and demonstrations nationwide. Amongst the protesters and those who sympathized with their cause, Kaepernick has been embraced as a hero.
