Schrager podcast: Why the timing of Colin Kaepernick's statement was wrong

BY foxsports • August 30, 2016

This week on the Peter Schrager podcast, Schrager discusses Trevor Siemian's path to the NFL, how he stole the starting job in Denver, and what it means for Mark Sanchez. Plus, Colin Kaepernick made his political stance, but the timing of it is really working against him. The Chargers finally came to a deal with their first-round pick Joey Bosa. Behind the scenes, how did the deal get done? And how will the long holdout affect his play on the field and chemistry in the locker room?

Schrager is joined this week by former NFL QB Jordan Palmer, who now works very closely in the development of young quarterbacks from high school to the NFL. Palmer has worked directly with or played alongside some of the top signal callers in the game. He gives his thoughts on a variety of QB situations in the NFL, including why he feels the Tony Romo era is over in Dallas, why we shouldn't be surprised if Blake Bortles leads the Jaguars to a 12-win season, why Kaepernick chose very poor timing to make his political stance, and how Clemson's Deshaun Watson is even better than we think.
