Colin Kaepernick Says He’s Willing To Be Backup in NFL During Rare Interview Colin Kaepernick sat down with I Am Athlete podcast in a rare interview. Brandon Marshall asked him if he was willing to do what Carmelo Anthony did in the NBA and take the league minimum in the NFL to play football again. Colin said, I know I have to find my way back in so if I have to come in as a backup that’s fine But he let it be known he won’t stay in the backup position. But that’s not where I am staying and when I prove that I am a starter I want to be able to step on the field as such. Do you think we will see Colin Kaepernick in an NFL uniform again?
