Colin Kaepernick to serve as honorary captain for Michigan football

It’s not unusual for college teams to invite former NFL stars to their spring games to serve as honorary captains. But to invite one who never took a snap for the school? That’s new.

But that’s what michigan football is doing, as former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will serve as an honorary captain at Saturday’s Maize and Blue Spring Game, the school announced via Twitter on Wednesday.

Kaepernick hasn’t thrown a pass in the NFL since the 2016 season. No NFL team signed him following that season, in which he ignited a national debate by kneeling during the national anthem played before games. Recently, though, Kaepernick has been working out with Seattle Seahawks players ace rumors of an NFL deal circle.
