Tomorrow he will be opting out of his contract, as was predicted weeks ago. My opinion (that he will provide a viable option for someone) is already on record here* - but it became a little more solidified today after reading some of the salient points in the linked article, such as:
"...All things considered, Kaepernick played well in 2016. He finished in the middle of the pack as a passer: 16th in adjusted yards per attempt, which was better than two Pro Bowl quarterbacks; 17th in QB rating; and 13th in touchdown percentage. Plus, he avoided picks, throwing 16 touchdowns against just four interceptions. And his running capability is still the best of any QB in the league. He finished second in total rushing among quarterbacks despite starting just 11 games, and posted the best yards per carry of any player with at least 50 carries."
"NFL owners might be disconcerted by Kaepernick’s activism, but the one thing they find even more disconcerting is losing. His refusal to stand for the national anthem has been called a “distraction” thousands of times, but Kaepernick didn’t cause locker-room strife — his teammates gave him a dang award. .."
I'm looking forward to seeing him in a new situation - as well as how he reacts to a fresh venue. At the very least, it should be interesting. : )
