Colin Kaepernick’s bid to get back to the NFL has taken another hit according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Kaepernick was added to the Montreal Alouettes negotiation list in September and was previously on the Ticats list of 45 protected players.
The 30-year-old has played six seasons in the NFL but made headlines as the first player to kneel during the U.S. national anthem, a form of non-violent protest that has been adopted in various forms by athletes across North America, including the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Kaepernick has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March 2017, leading to speculation that he has been blackballed by the league.
Kaepernick has thrown for 12,271 yards and 72 touchdowns with 30 interceptions and 2,300 rushing yards (6.1 yards per carry) and 13 touchdowns since San Francisco selected him in the second-round of the 2011 NFL draft.
