    We need somebody to come in. Hope he doesn't trade for Savage.

    Why would anyone trade for a camp arm? We just need someone to get us through the preseason.

    It's not injured throwing the ball. They hit their hand on a helmet/player.

    And I don't think Kaepernick really wants to play anyways (regardless of what he says).. If he did he wouldn't of showed up to camp 20 pounds underweight his final year, playing like a camp arm, causing the team to eventually bench him for Blaine Gabbert..

    Kaepernick was checking out of the NFL long before he took a knee. Honestly I would rather have Nathan Peterman. I think people forget just how bad Kaepernick was before he got "woke". His "skills" no longer outweigh the drama he'll bring to a franchise/locker room.

    Hard pass.

    Are people actually still crying about Kaepernick getting signed? Wow.

    What's it been like three years since he has played? Amazing that people still think he's a football player.

    That was just my sarcastic comment on the guy that qb whisperer Obrien promoted for years as our savior. Of course all we need is a rag arm for 4 weeks.

    supposed to be a "poor man's Watson" type of player. QB ed in Mississippi and played well. Was expected to be drafted, but wound up a UDFA. May be a fair pickup.

    Yes.. the media reignites this crap every damn year around this time.

    Dude is 3 years removed from playing and when he did play he wasn't even a very good QB.. I don't get the infatuation with him at all.

    Yeah I know, that's why I called Tom Savage a camp arm. :)

    If A.J. McCarron can injure his thumb passing a football, Savage would probably tear a knee slipping his pads on.

    Ta'amu 63% completion and article says negatives are he "zips"short passes and does not throw long. He avg over 9 yards per pass with decent
    Accuracy for two seasons. 19 TD to 8 INTs is okay. I want to see how he does on NFL field and how handles himself with zero knowledge of playbook or our WRs and TEs. Your opportunity guy, bring it.

    Watched a couple of games of his. I liked what I saw, but I didn’t watch him the entire 2018 season. I thought he would have been drafted at least in the 3rd or 4th round, but I guess NFL teams didn’t think much of him. I can’t wait to see what he does in the preseason. Watson-Light!

    All teams with franchise QBs are thin at QB. You know who is the backup to Brady, Brian Hoyer. The fact is we have gotten use to watching bad QBs play and good QBs go down injured so we think you have to carry at least 2 if not 3 stud QBs but the truth is most teams once they find their guy just focus on protecting that one guy and if he goes down they are screwed.

    The Pat's also have Danny Etling (Joe Webb type) and Jarrett Stidham as a development QB. I think the history of QB injuries and the poor O-line warrant at least a developmental practice squad player.
