Jaguars at home are one of the toughest places for QBs this year - top five in basically every major passing category.  It's inevitable that the Kaepernick creeps will say something repetitive and dumb about Johnson's performance though.  

No doubt in my mind

Why Kaepernick and not Peyton Manning or Kurt Warner?  They have a much better resume

Why not Perez Hilton? He makes as much sense as your other suggestions.

Peyton Manning 96.5, multiple SB

Kurt Warner 93.7, multiple SB

i don’t believe Perez Hilton has any NFL experience whatsoever 

also I didnt do a deep dive but I believe the only other non-active QB with recent super bowl experience is Rex Grossman and I’m not sure he’d be an improvement over Josh Johnson

He doesn't.  But retired players who have announced they will never play again have as much relevance to that article and to this discussion, as Hilton.

If you don't want to people to know that you are trolling this thread, then you shouldn't make absurd suggestions.

https://theundefeated.com/features/33-quarterbacks-signed-before-colin-kaepernick-free-agent/

All the quarterbacks who signed since Colin Kaepernick became a free agent

It has been nearly two years since quarterback Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers on March 2, 2017, making him a free agent. Months before, Kaepernick, who was drafted by the 49ers in 2011 and helped lead them to the Super Bowl the following year, started sitting (and later kneeling) during the playing of the national anthem before games in protest of police brutality and racial inequality. A day after Kaepernick opted out of his deal, 49ers general manager John Lynch told SiriusXM radio that under Kaepernick’s current contract “it wasn’t going to work,” and the team had planned to release the then-29-year-old.

Kaepernick spent the entire 2017 season and three-quarters of the 2018 season out of work, as virtually every team in the league with a need at quarterback has signed a less accomplished passer. Forty-two quarterbacks signed with teams between March 2017 and November 2017, most of whom either had never played in an NFL game or had a losing record as a starter (Kaepernick was 28-30 over five seasons).

During the 2018 season, four teams that either lost their starting quarterback to injury (Washington Redskins, 49ers) or were hindered by subpar play (Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars) signed players who have struggled in recent years: the Redskins signed Josh Johnson, who hadn’t played since 2013; the Bills signed Derek Anderson, Cam Newton’s backup with the Carolina Panthers; the 49ers signed Tom Savage, who lasted less than a week with the team; and the Jaguars signed Landry Jones, who lost his backup job in Pittsburgh to a first- and a second-year player.

In total, 85 quarterbacks (not including draft picks or players who re-signed with their teams or were promoted from the practice squad) have been signed to teams since Kaepernick opted out. Here is that list: (List at above link)

Yes, indeed, the one area in which the Redskins have excelled these past couple weeks is poking holes in the argument that signing Colin Kaepernick would be too much of a distraction.

I think something like 90% of the posts in this thread are a combination of people trolling squistion and squistion's determination to always have the last word.  There's no other way to explain this topic have 266 pages.

How many companies hire an employee who is in the process of suing them?

It has nothing to do with kappy..as I would take him at 2 million a year over Stafford at 25 million a year

Eric Reid certainly doing his best to help keep Kaepernick out of the NFL. Now Reid is upset about getting fined and has decided to add that to his grievance. 

This has to at least be part of the reason teams dont even want to talk to Kaepernick. Why even risk anything? Look how many people he subpoenaed for his grievance. If you brought him in for a workout and didnt sign him good chance you would have another grievance filed against you. Who needs that for a guy that likely wants a decent chunk of change and wasn't very good when he was still in the league?

If you can convince two guys who are already in Halls of Fame to come out of retirement, good on you.

He’s more qualified than Kaepernick to lead the Skins to the playoffs :shrug:

He and all other backup QBs should kneel before they play.  

If he plays well, he will continue to start.  If he performs poorly and is cut, he can sue the NFL.  Win win :excited:

Video shows a Miami Beach cop knock out an unarmed black man at a restaurant. 

The man may have been homeless. The police report appears to be inaccurate. A cop reporting another cop. 

The police in Miami Beach receive a lot of training in dealing with these situations. I don't think the cop followed protocol. The taxpayers of Miami Beach will likely pay for this.

In the early 90s, there was a black boycott of Miami Beach which started when local officials snubbed Nelson Mandela. The boycott led to some positive changes in race relations and better integration of local blacks in the tourist industry.

I have no doubt that Peyton will cast off his doctors' recommendations to continue making pizza commercials and jump back into the NFL.  Put him in, coach!

Here's a pro tip: when you play the "gotcha" card, make sure you at least get the name right.

Meh.  He was right.  I completely threw out of my head Manning's entire period in Denver because I hate the Broncos.

Sure if it were more than 5 years ago. At this point...no, he is not more capable at all and it’s a ridiculous notion to bring him up.

If I'm the first to say it, so be it: any team that signs Peyton Manning is absolutely justified in doing so over Kaepernick.  Also over Sanchez, Drew Stanton, Peter Pujals (yes that's his actual NFL photo), Joel Stave, and even the confidence-inspiring Brandon Weeden.

The photographer said "Give me a look that says 'Rob Johnson.'"

I think I remember when that photo was taken. As I recall it was a reaction to something bad that happened on the field, like a missed field goal.
