NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick had not featured on the big stage for the last three years. Kaepernick, who became an overnight sensation across the globe, when he chose to kneel during the American national anthem in protest to the racial injustice endemic in the US, has been without an NFL franchise since 2016. However, as per recently confirmed reports, the 33-year old has been touted to make a return to the competition this year with NFL organising a special tryout for his services.
