Colin Kaepernick’s attorney watched recently as the Texans scoured the market for available quarterbacks in the wake of Deshaun Watson’s season-ending injury.
Attorney Mark Geragos thought that A) Given the lack of talented QBs available and B) Given Texans owner Bob McNair’s recent controversial remarks (“We can’t let the inmates run the prison”) that infuriated many Houston players, the team might be open to signing Kaepernick.
“I just don’t understand the Texans,” Geragos said. “If I’m Bob McNair, and maybe I’m addled and maybe I’m sick, I just don’t know. I mean, I’ll find out when I do his deposition. But if I’m Bob McNair and I’ve already misspoke and my players want to come and beat the crap out of me, I think that somebody should be whispering in my ear, ‘Sign Kap, sign Kap.’ Because that can redeem you, I would think, just from a public relations standpoint.”
Legal analysts have said they believe Kaepernick’s legal team will have a hard time proving NFL team owners have colluded to keep the quarterback out of the league.
The least enticing contest sees the 49ers host the Giants in a game featuring two teams with one win between them.
The Rams boast the second-best scoring offense in the league and now get a Texans team quarterbacked by Tom Savage. Los Angeles’ defense is seventh in the NFL in takeaways. Putting this team against Savage as well as Houston’s 21st-ranked pass defense is a recipe for a blowout.
Dallas will be without Elliott on Sunday after his six-game suspension finally stuck. The Cowboys should still be favorites against the Falcons, though, and with Atlanta allowing 114.5 rush yards per game, it will be no surprise if Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden, Rod Smith and even Dak Prescott are able to engineer success on the ground.
