Report: Colin Kaepernick is Interested in the New York Jets

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

According to Manish Mehta, Colin Kaepernick wants to play for the New York Jets. Specifically, Mehta states:

The Daily News has learned that embattled 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco after a forgettable 2015 that included on-field struggles that resulted in a benching midway through the season and a coaching change after it. The Jets are his preferred destination, according to sources.

We've discussed Kaepernick in the past, so it's an interesting concept. Even though he's struggled lately, he is a Super Bowl-starting quarterback with all the talent in the world. Perhaps a fresh start will help him, along with Chan Gailey, who apparently turns all quarterbacks, including Ryan Fitzpatrick, into gold. What do you think?
