During a time when it seems as if no team will sign Colin Kaepernick, Jim Harbaugh not only believes he can be a contributor to an NFL franchise, but win multiple Super Bowls for them.
Yes, you heard that right. We aren’t sure if Harbaugh is puffing on the same stuff LaVar Ball is, but he has his reasonings.
Jim Harbaugh told Pro Football Talk that Kaepernick, his former quarterback during the two’s stent in San Francisco, still has all the tools he displayed when he took the league by storm in his first year as a starter. Harbaugh said NFL teams have reached out to ask his opinion of Kaepernick, and Harbaugh tells them they should sign him.
“I’ll tell you the same thing I tell them: I think he’s an outstanding player and I think he’s a great competitor who has proven it in games and has the ability to be not only an NFL starter but a great NFL player,” Harbaugh said. “He’ll have a great career and be a great quarterback, win championships.”
Harbaugh also noted he thinks NFL teams are not nearly as patient as they need to be in developing quarterbacks, saying he thinks a smart team will take the time to work with Kaepernick. Harbaugh believes that team will go on to win multiple Super Bowls with his former QB under center.
