"I would very much like to see him in the league," Kraft told the Times

Kraft was asked about a report from early in the season detailing potential discussions to bring Kaepernick to the Patriots. Kraft called the report a "rumor" and then quickly changing the subject. 

Kaepernick last played in 2016 and became a free agent after opting out of his contract. He filed a grievance against the NFL in Oct. 2017 and claimed league owners colluded to keep him unsigned due to his protest of racial injustice and police brutality.
