Kaepernick, who was blackballed for protesting the national anthem, is desperate to return to the field before he is too old to play.

The 31-year-old Scorpio has been out of the NFL since 2016.

Kaepernick's agent told the teams his client would be willing to play backup quarterback just to touch the ball again. But still there was no response from the teams.

Critics say Kaepernick is still blackballed despite settling a lawsuit with the league for a reported $10 million.

The former 49ers quarterback spends long days in the weight room waiting for his phone to ring.

"Colin is literally in the best shape of his life," tweeted Chris Williamson of SNY. "He's been working out five days a week at 5 a.m. for three years. He wants to play and his agent has been contacting teams in need of a quarterback."

Tennis superstar Serena Williams, her househusband Alexis Ohanian (carrying their daughter, Alexis, Jr.), and Serena's sister Venus Williams were seen arriving at the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris, France after Serena pulled out of the French Open, citing an injury to her pectoral muscle.

NBA MVP LeBron James may have fractured his nose when he was blocked by Serge Ibaka during a drive to the basket late in the 4th quarter of the Miami Heat vs Oklahmoa City Thunder in Oklahoma last night. The Heat easily defeated the Thunder 103-81.

James, 29, was actually hit twice by Ibaka as he drove to the basket for a dunk to cap off his 33 points in 33 minutes night. The NBA refs did not call either foul. This is typical of the biased NBA referees who routinely look the other way when LeBron is attacked in the paint by opposing teams.
