If/when that subsides he will be a normal QB in the league again.
Ironically I could see the Seahawks being a top 5 landing spot for him giving the similarities to Wilson, the liberal air of the PNW, and now we have seen a season where Wilson's health was at risk.
Kap >>>> Boykin if you care about winning games. Why else was Wilson stuck out there so long?
I agree that it is mainly politics. I mean he hasn't had a visit - that is crazy
Now in regards to Boykin you are oversimplifying. Boykin was a rookie last year of course Kaepernick would be more knowledgeable about reading defenses and understanding the speed of the game.
Now Wilson was out there so long last year because he was deemed the best option. So the question last year wouldn't have been if Kaepernick is better than Boykin but if a hobbled Wilson would have been better than Kaepernick just like it was if a hobbled Wilson was better than Boykin. We have seen the same decision making with players like Roethlisberger in the past
Kaep would only sign 1 year and he would want way more than the $1million that Boykin is getting this year. So do you give up Boykin's 2 year contract for a total of $2.6 million just for the chance to have Kaepernick on the bench for more money and for 1 year?
If he wants to come in for the same dollars that Boykin is getting plus a 2 year deal - yeah I would take him. But since I really doubt that he will then we would be giving up cap space plus possibly lose a year and then next year start over being in a worse position than even last year.........
So in my opinion - from a gameplan and skillset perspective - yes he fits, but from a roster and salary cap perspective - not a good fit
Now Cleveland Browns just threw $16 million at buying roster spots so why they would not have signed him for $2 million and a one year season is beyond me......
