Most people seem to have written off any chance of Colin Kaepernick making an NFL comeback, but Colin Kaepernick is not one of them.
Despite not playing in five years, Kaepernick, 33, told Ebony magazine that he still gets up at 5 a.m. and trains 5 or 6 days a week just in case a team gives him a call.
“Absolutely. I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I’m prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again,” Kaepernick said during an interview.
“That’s not something I will ever let go of, regardless of the actions of 32 teams and their partners to deny me employment. The same way I was persistent in high school is the same way I’m gonna be persistent here.”
Kaepernick’s persistence in the courtroom won him an undisclosed settlement with the league after he brought suit against the NFL, charging them with blackballing him due to his anthem protests. Now, Kapernick sees his persistence and dedication to his workout regimen as more proof that the league is shutting him out.
