Colin Kaepernick is getting another shot at the NFL.

On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the former 49ers star was working out with the Las Vegas Raiders this week, and from all accounts, that session went well.

On Thursday, reports began to surface noting that “the door is open” for Kaepernick to join the squad.

It shouldn’t come as a total shock.

Raiders’ ownership has been high on the passer this offseason, with owner Mark Davis saying that “he believes” in Kaepernick and would be willing to sign him if head coach Josh McDaniels wants him on the roster.

At 34 years old, Kaepernick knows that he might not be able to step into a starting role, but he thinks he can make a team better with his presence in the locker room.

And he’s probably right.

Over a six-year career, he threw for 72 scores and ran for 13 more. A true dual threat option, he’s the type of player that’s now thriving in the NFL.

Now, that’s not to say he’s better than most other starting quarterbacks in the NFL, which is a ridiculous theory seeing that he’s been out of the league for some time.

Still, he could prove a viable option for teams looking to add quarterback depth.

Kaepernick is an extremely polarizing figure in sports. Many love him. Many hate him. Few seem to be in between. With news breaking that he could potentially join the Raiders’ roster, opinions began to fly on social media.

One thing we can agree on is that the Raiders will sell a lot of #7 jerseys if they do indeed sign Kaepernick.

We should know soon how the Raiders are feeling about adding the signal caller to the roster.
