Colin Kaeperinick is back in the news, even after he and Eric Reid settled with the NFL regarding their collusion grievances against the league on Friday.

Appearing on CNN Saturday night, Kaepernick's attorney Mark Geragos said his client still wants to play in the NFL and there may be teams interested.

"I think you're going to see ... within the next two weeks that somebody is going to step up and do the right thing, and you want me to predict who?" Geragos asked. "Besides the Panthers, it would not surprise me if [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft makes a move."

Geragos also said he wouldn't be surprised if one of the Patriots' former coaches "makes a move" for his client. This could be a number of coaches, including Pete Carroll (Seahawks), Brian Flores (Dolphins), Matt Patricia (Lions) or Bill O'Brien (Texans).

This isn't the first time Geragos has connected Kraft to Kaepernick, but it really doesn't make sense for New England. Tom Brady has said he wants to play until he's 45 and then there's veteran backup Brian Hoyer and developmental QB Danny Etling.

Kaeperinick hasn't been on a NFL roster since March of 2017.
