Tony Romo Says Colin Kaepernick Will ‘Probably Get Back in at Some Point’, But Brings Too Many Distractions as Back-up

Somewhat reluctantly, at first, Tony Romo gave his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick.

Romo is playing golf at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood-Tahoe and doing well. Romo sits in third place with 44 points after two rounds.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, and current TV announcer, said Kaepernick is good enough to play in the NFL, but would likely bring too much unwanted attention, especially as a back-up quarterback.

He said most NFL teams will bring in anybody they think can help win a championship.

“Even if he’s got a little bit of trouble in the background or someone’s done something, you know? But Colin, he’s a good person. I know he cares about his cause. And I think he’ll probably get back in at some point. I just think it’s going to take an injury or two,” Romo said.
