There are critics who still believe Kaepernick would be a polarizing figure inside the locker room, given his stance on protesting the National Anthem to bring awareness to police brutality in America by kneeling as the anthem played. Kaepernick hasn’t been on an active NFL roster since 2016.
Plus, at the age of 34 and nearly six seasons away from the NFL, many will wonder if Kaepernick would feel rusty. There’s also this question: Would a team with an established veteran Pro Bowler accept him with open arms?
Well, one AFC Pro Bowl quarterback answered that question on Tuesday, June 7.
‘I Think He’d get Along Just Fine With Our Guys’
Does Carr believe he and the Raiders would welcome Kaepernick in?
“For us, I think it’d be great,” Carr said. “I don’t want to speak for everybody. I know him and I would get along great. I know we have in the past, and I think we would again. I think, for the most part, I think he’d get along just fine with our guys.”
