Despite not having played an NFL game in over three years, Colin Kaepernick is beginning to generate buzz for a return in 2020.

On Wednesday morning, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters that he believed Kaepernick’s playing style was a good fit for the team.


“I haven’t spoken with Colin, not sure where he’s at as far in his career, what he wants to do,” Lynn said. “But Colin definitely fits the style of quarterback for the system that we’re going to be running. I’m very confident and happy with the three quarterbacks that I have, but you can never have too many people waiting on the runway.”

The Chargers are the first team to mention Kaepernick as a workout candidate amid the widespread social unrest that started last month after George Floyd’s death while in Minneapolis police custody.

Lynn would later clarify that he hadn’t yet contacted Kaepernick and that he would put Kaep on the team’s “emergency” workout list.

Apparently NFL execs also believe the Chargers could be a good landing spot for Kaepernick.

The news about the interest from the Chargers comes less than a week after Seahawks’ head coach Pete Carroll revealed that a team called him and inquired about Kaepernick.

It seems like teams are not afraid of the backlash of signing Kaepernick anymore which means it’s probably likely he actually plays in the NFL this year.
