Colin Kaepernick’s free agency has continued past the NFL Draft, and he has watched several less accomplished quarterbacks sign deals this offseason.

Kaepernick’s adviser, Harry Edwards, told USA Today that three teams have inquired about the former San Francisco 49ers QB, but that report has been refuted by Kaepernick’s girlfriend.

Kaep’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab, asked what three teams had inquired about the quarterback.

Diab questioned why Edwards never approached Kaepernick with the three inquiries, leading to speculation as to whether the inquiries ever even happened.

Edwards said teams asked him if he felt like Kaepernick wanted to actually play football, and he told them to ask the QB himself. But it appears as if Edwards never let Kaepernick know that teams were interested, so it’s possible he fabricated the story.

And if Edwards didn’t fabricate the story, why didn’t he tell his client, whom he supposedly advises? That doesn’t seem like an ideal way to get Kaepernick a job in the NFL again.

Someone isn’t being completely honest and up front, and it appears as if Edwards is the culprit. But until reliable information is revealed, it will remain unclear.
