Itโ€™s a good thought, but unless heโ€™s going to be an elite player right off the bat with the ball in his hands youโ€™re taking the ball out of the hands of Rodgers, Jones, and Adams. Hill does a lot more than trick plays, so unless CK can return kicks, block, AND run the wildcat I donโ€™t think we will get the same use out of him. If he can return kicks successfully than maybe you get some Josh Cribbs-esque use out of him, otherwise heโ€™s a waste of a roster spot in GB.

Thereโ€™s a place for him in the NFL on a roster. At the rate Pittsburgh is going through QBs they might need him. Seeing him with Bruce Arians might be fun. Theyโ€™re going to need a QB.

I don't think anyone will bring him in and use him like Taysom Hill. 

He's probably best suited for a role where a really good team's backup is not ready to step in. Let's say Rodgers got dinged up enough to where he can't play for 2-3 games, but is going to ready to come back for the playoffs. Does Kaepernik give you a better chance to win a game in that scenario than Tim Boyle? If he shows that he hasn't declined physically in the workout I think the answer is probably yes. If you are a team like NO and have Bridgewater as a backup you aren't going to be interested. 

Of course, Brett Hundley sucked in 9 starts (and most of the game where Rodgers got hurt in 2017) and in those games the Packers went 3-7. There is no question in my mind that Kaepernik would have given them a better chance to win that year and get them into the playoffs until Rodgers could return. 

Workout over -- LOL

I guess SOME scouts (Why were the Chiefs there?? Uh-huh...More than just QB) were there but this "workout" was NOT NFL "sponsored"??

Good lord.....guess they can't just give the guy a shot without everyone trying to get the "upper hand"

I watched some senior softball recently at the Huntsman World Senior Games which is a big deal here in St.George UT. 

in the 65-74 age group, those boys were still jacking the ball pretty damn well. The tip-off on aging is the wheelsโ€”they just donโ€™t work so well.

In the 75-85 group, you really could see the loss of upper body strength happen. I still give those dudes credit, they were out there trying.

Not understanding all the commotion about this.  He was a below par QB his last couple of years in league and was replaced as the starter.  I still remember Clay Matthews sacking him and taunting "you ain't Russell Wilson bro."  Add the fact he's been out of the league a couple of years, and probably lost some spring in his legs, I can't see him being effective. 

Tell that to Matt Moore.
