It was featured on theI AM ATHLETE Podcast and indicated that he is willing to serve as a backup quarterback. 

“I know I have to find my way back in. So if I have to come in as a backup, that’s fine,”Kaepernick spoke. “But that’s not where I’m staying.

“I believe in Colin Kaepernick,” Davis said. “He deserves every chance in the world to become a quarterback in the National Football League. I still stand by it. If our coaches and general manager want to bring him in or want him to be the quarterback on this team, I would welcome him with open arms.”
