The Las Vegas Raiders took a look Wednesday at former San Francisco 49er quarterback and political activist Colin Kaepernick, ESPN reported.

Kaepernick hasn’t played professional football since he left the Niners and became a free agent in 2017 amid mounting pressure over his decision to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice.

ESPN reports that the Raiders already have three quarterbacks on the roster — starting QB Derek Carr, a Fresno State grad, and two backups.

Kaepernick did a workout in front of NFL scouts and news media in Georgia in 2019.
