Do you think the NFL will reinstate Colin Kaepernick now that they admit they were wrong?

Was it ever actually official that he was banned from the league? To my knowledge it was just some informal ignorance from the owners not wanting to sign him. If that's the case, I don't think he has to be. I know he took some tryouts for the couple years after he was off the 49ers, but no one signed him. I mean it's been 4 years since he was benched. Do you think he even wants to come back?

He wasn't banned, he was a lousy QB. Has nothing to do with his race or protests. It's all about winning games.

"Reinstatement" is not necessary. He's ALWAYS been eligible. To play in the NFL requires only one thing-for Kaepernick to show that his skills can help a team win.

He didn't get banned. He couldn't win games as a QB. Winning NFL quarterbacks will find a team. He's at best a back up with lots of social baggage....so hence no job.

He was never NOT instated. NFL teams simply chose not to hire him. And while it's clearly because of the kneeling protests, it's not likely a 'conspiracy' or coordinated. It's simply 32 teams making a reasonable business decision. Because remember, these are BUSINESSES.
The fact is that the majority of people who go to NFL games are older. Especially season ticket holders. This is because NFL games are EXPENSIVE, and older people tend to have more money due to savings and experience. Older people are also more likely to be pro military and patriotic.
So in you're a BUSINESS, why would you hire a mediocre (and that's all Kaepernick was...he wasn't a star by any stretch of the imagination) player who is going to alienate a large block of your customers? It just doesn't make any sense.
And at this point, having been out of the game for so long, and having not even tried to play in the start-up leagues, Kaepernick's on-field value is probably very small. It's questionable that he would make a team. Yet the risk of alienating that fan base is still very real.
Kaepernick made his choice. He did this to himself. He made himself a hot potato. That comes with consequences.

In short Colin Kapernick isn't worth the trouble that he brings.People act like he was a top teir QB when he was doing the kneeling.Fact is he was a backup QB. He had his moments in the NFL under coach Harabaugh but after that he was done.He never took the chances offered to him by the Ravens and Seahawks. No NFL team was going to call him when they heard his asking price for the AAF and XFL. As others have said he was never banned.So there is no need to reinstate him

He was never expelled. He just wasn't wanted by any of the teams. He scheduled a workout to show off his skills but no one showed up to see him perform.
