Fox Sports 1 “First Things First” co-host and NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter said he spoke personally with free agent Colin Kaepernick over the weekend and he said the quarterback was “missing” football.
Great conversation with Colin Kaepernick yesterday. He's absolutely in football shape, ready for a call… if it ever comes. pic.twitter.com/fsuznfIKS7

“[T]here’s no way that he shouldn’t be on an NFL roster,” Carter said Monday. “He wants to play.”
“He believes he’s got a gift to play football and believes that he can get a lot better as a quarterback. It was nice to see him. It was nice to be able to talk to him and see his state of mind — he’s missing the game,” added Carter.
