Colin Kaepernick is still without a job, but his former backup just earned a deal.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.
Gabbert started 13 games over the last two years for the 49ers. He took the job from Kaepernick in 2015, and Kaepernick took it back last season.
The Jaguars selected Gabbert with the No. 10 overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, but he has never been able to sustain any consistency in the league.
So many teams have signed quarterbacks who are less talented and less proven than Kaepernick. It’s worth wondering if Kaep will get a chance with any team prior to the start of the 2017 season.
