Dallas Cowboys News: Quarterbacks Coach Wade Wilson Believes in Free Agent Colin Kaepernick
The Dallas Cowboys are searching for another quarterback this offseason but are yet to reach out to free agent Colin Kaepernick. Despite this, the team's current quarterbacks coach, Wade Wilson, believes that Kaepernick has the talent to be on an NFL team.
According to all22.com, Wilson's belief in Kaepernick was recently revealed by Mike Fisher who is the Cowboys Insider for 105.3 The Fan. First, Fisher spoke about Dallas working out former New York Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib. Then he shared a statement from Wilson in which the coach expressed his take on Kaepernick's current situation.
"Personally, do I think [Kaepernick is unemployed] because of some of the stuff that he's done? Yes. Is that unfair or fair? I don't know. But it's real. Colin Kaepernick is a talented guy. He's taken a team to a Super Bowl. He's talented enough to be on a team," Wilson said according to Fisher.
Wilson is now one of the football personalities who showed support and belief in Kaepernick. He joined the likes of head coaches Jim Harbaugh (University of Michigan), John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens), and Vance Joseph (Denver Broncos). Some of the players who also backed the quarterback were Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith and Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall. Jim, Smith, and Marshall all had the chance to work with the 29-year-old free agent in the past.
It is uncertain if Wilson's words will lead to Kaepernick heading to Dallas. As of this moment, it is unlikely that the Cowboys are desperate to acquire his services. They already have a starter and franchise quarterback in the much younger Dak Prescott. Following Prescott on the depth chart are 3-4 quarterbacks that are competing for the backup job.
