Kaepernick, a former football star at Pitman High School in Turlock, has not signed with a team since opting out of his contract with the 49ers.
According to the ESPN story, Harry Edwards, a civil rights activist and mentor to the quarterback, said the three teams asked questions about Kaepernick’s ability to play and if the desire was still there.
Edwards expressed confidence in Kaepernick’s skills. “If Kaep makes up his mind, he wouldn’t only go in and make a team, he’d put pressure on somebody to start,” Edwards was quoted as saying in the ESPN story.
There is speculation that other NFL teams are not interested after Kaepernick’s protests last season, in which he took a knee on the sideline during the national anthem. Kaepernick said he was protesting social injustice.
