Here’s a look….
No, the Eagles shouldn’t sign Colin Kaepernick. Not yet.
Carson Wentz is healthy. If that changes, as it changed each of the past four years, then yes, Kaepernick is Plan B, assuming Nate Sudfeld’s broken left wrist is fully healed. If Sudfeld is still hurt, then Kaepernick becomes Plan A.
The Eagles are built to win now. If All-Pro tackles Jason Peters and Lane Johnson are healthy, the Birds are, on paper, a superior team to the 2017 championship edition. That’s why, if Wentz gets hurt, it would be foolish to disqualify Kaepernick.
Worried about fan reaction? Please. Half the fans will love him, a quarter will hate him, the rest won’t care, which was the popularity graph for Donovan McNabb. If anyone gives up their season tickets, they’ll be snapped up in 30 seconds; the waiting list is generations long. Worried about a decline in television viewership? Worried that sponsors will bolt? Go ask Nike about that. America has spoken with its pocketbooks. Kap might have enemies, but he’s got a lot of friends, too…
