Colin Kaepernick lawyer Mark Geragos claims 2 teams are interested potentially signing the controversial quarterback.
Geragos did not name names, but speculation surrounds the Carolina Panthers ad they fit Geragos’ description.
In addition, Carolina Panther Eric Reid, who kneeled by Colin’s side, has been advocating for Kaepernick.
"All 32 teams could benefit from having a QB like Colin on their team."

Speaking on The Adam Carolla Podcast this week, Geragos offered details about the two teams that have shown interest in Kaepernick since he declined to participate in the NFL’s showcase workout over the weekend and instead held his own public session at an Atlanta high school.
“One who is legitimately in need of a quarterback who had a very poor showing on Sunday and has got an owner that I don’t think gives a sh-t,” he said.
Geragos didn’t offer any names but speculation surrounds the Carolina Panthers after rookie quarterback Kyle Allen, who has been filling in for Cam Newton for most of the season, threw four interceptions in Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
The second team could be anyone’s guess as several organizations in the league have struggled this season with injured and underperforming quarterbacks.
Meanwhile, Kaepernick’s custom shoe will soon be available for purchase.
Ex-49ers teammate Eric Reid teased the shoe on Instagram.

Before taking to the field for his workout, Kaepernick arrived wearing his signature Nike shoes.
According to a report from Page Six, Nike planned to use Kaepernick’s workout as part of a marketing campaign.
The commercial script allegedly used a note from Colin Kaepernick that he wrote when he was in the 4th grade about “having a job in the NFL” in an attempt to pull on heart strings and get people to rally behind him.
Page Six has learned exclusively that while Nike wasn’t filming, it did have a marketing move up its sleeve — in the form of a branded congratulations to be posted to Kaepernick. The marketing material — seen by Page Six — consists of a letter that Kaepernick himself penned back in fourth grade when he dreamed of having a job in the NFL. “A Note from Colin Kaepernick, 4th Grade,” says the copy, followed by a child’s handwriting in pencil that reads:
“I’m 5ft 2 inches 91 pounds. Good athelet [sic]. I think in 7 years I will be between 6ft – to 6ft 4 inches 140 pounds. I hope I go to a good college… then go to the pros and play on the Niners or the Packers even if they aren’t good in seven years.”
The letter by young Kaepernick is signed, “Sincerely, Colin.” It then has the “Just Do It” tagline, and a list of all the teams that were to be at the NFL’s workout.
In July, Nike decided to immediately stop production of Patriotic themed sneakers at the request of Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick claimed the Betsy Ross flag was racially insensitive.
FoxBusiness reports Colin Kaepernick is reportedly set to get his own signature shoe from Nike released next month on the heels of his controversial workout for a handful of NFL teams over the weekend.
Nike is expected to release the shoe across the U.S. in December as the company continues to develop a marketing strategy around the free-agent quarterback, industry sources told Yahoo Sports on Thursday.
While it’s unclear how many shoes the company will release, Nike reportedly believes that the demand for the item forced the apparel conglomerate to increase production numbers.
Kaepernick’s former teammate, and current Carolina Panthers defensive back Eric Reid, appeared to have teased the quarterback’s signature shoe on Instagram earlier this week.
