Well, this would certainly be interesting.
Colin Kaepernick has been patiently waiting to get another shot in the NFL. Now that his lawsuit with the NFL has been settled, teams could finally be ready to sign him to a new deal.
If you ask his lawyer, though, a pair of teams immediately come to mind: Patriots and Panthers.

He then said this:
"I'll make a bold prediction. I think you're going to see within the next 2 weeks someone stepping up. It would not surprise me if Bob Kraft makes a move."
Talk about some Saturday night fire from Mark Geragos.
It's only been a handful of days since Kaep and the NFL agreed to a settlement, but that's more than enough time for us to start thinking about where the former Pro Bowl signal caller could end up. Should Cam Newton miss extensive time with his shoulder injury, Kaepernick's dual-threat abilities would make sense for Carolina and "Riverboat" Ron Rivera.
The Patriots? Who better for Kaep to learn from as a No. 2 QB than Tom Brady, arguably the greatest QB to ever suit up in the league.
Bob Kraft has made it clear he's a fan of No. 7. Could it lead to him signing Kaepernick? Man, that'd be something.
