As part of the PR tour for his new self-help book, Tom Brady sat for an interview with Norah O’Donnell of CBS during which he was asked whether he thinks Colin Kaepernick will get another chance to play in the NFL:

“I certainly hope so. I’ve always watched him and admired him, the way that he’s played. He was a great young quarterback, he came to our stadium and beat us, and took his team to the Super Bowl in 2012. He accomplished a lot in the pros, as a player, and he’s certainly qualified. I hope he gets a shot.”

Brady was careful to avoid answering the actual question—whether Kaepernick will have a chance—but it’s nice to see the acknowledgement that Kaepernick deserves one.
