Oddsmakers list Colin Kaepernick as favorite among ex-NFL QBs to sign with XFL

Kaepernick, who last played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, tops the list with +100 (even) odds of signing with the XFL.

Still, there’s always the chance that Kaepernick simply wants to play football again, and with the former 49ers starter still up against the NFL in court, who’s to say one XFL team won’t pursue him?

Kaepernick isn’t the only big name with odds of landing in the new league, as BetOnline.ag’s bet includes some other polarizing former stars:

Colin Kaepernick: +100 (even)Johnny Manziel: +200 (2/1)Michael Vick: +500 (5/1)Tim Tebow: +1000 (10/1)Brett Favre: +10000 (100/1)

Odds have Washington not signing Colin Kaepernick favored over signing

It was an ugly Monday for Washington, who lost to the Philadelphia Eagles and lost quarterback Colt McCoy to a broken leg in the process. This comes after losing Alex Smith to an ugly broken leg of his own. They are now tied with Philadelphia a game back of the Dallas Cowboys in the mediocre at best NFC East.

Washington hosts the New York Giants, travels to face the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, and then closes out the season at home against the Philadelphia Eagles. There are plenty of winnable games in that stretch. Even if Dallas wins the division, Washington is tied with Philadelphia and Carolina a half game back of the Minnesota Vikings for the second wild card spot. The playoffs are a very real possibility.

A complete debunking of Jay Gruden’s excuse for the Redskins passing on Colin Kaepernick

To replace the injured Colt McCoy ‘ who replace an injured Alex Smith ‘ the Redskins are signing a mobile quarterback who has experience playing for Jim Harbaugh ‘ just not the one many believe is the most qualified for the job.

On the same day Jay Gruden told the media Washington was not interested in Colin Kaepernick, the team signed journeyman backup Josh Johnson (who last attempted an NFL pass in 2011) to sit behind Mark Sanchez, giving the Redskins, who remain just one game out in the NFC East, a quarterback room that screams We’re giving up on this season.

CK2DC? Kevin Durant backs Colin Kaepernick as Redskins’ next backup quarterback

Not that Bruce Allen, Doug Williams or any other member of the Redskins’ front office asked, but Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has an idea which free agent quarterback his favorite NFL team should sign to back up Mark Sanchez. Hint: It’s not Kellen Clemens or EJ Manuel, two of the retreads the Redskins worked out after Alex Smith went down with a season-ending injury last month.

On Tuesday, Durant shared an image of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on his Instagram story, and he made sure to mention @redskins, the team he fell in love with as a kid growing up in Prince George’s County. Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season, when he made national headlines for kneeling during the playing of the national anthem before games to call attention to the issues of racial inequality and police brutality against African Americans.
