The start of the 2017 NFL season is less than three months away, and QB Colin Kaepernick still remains unsigned. But the coach for whom Kaepernick played his best football, Jim Harbaugh, still believes his former quarterback is a starter-quality player. And he believes he has championships in his future, as well.
"I do believe that (he's an NFL starter), yes. He's still in his 20s and has been very successful at the NFL level as a starting quarterback," Harbaugh told the Rich Eisen Show on Monday. "My record is well-documented that I think he will win championships before his career is finished."
"He's the ultimate competitor, very talented, and gives tremendous effort," Harbaugh said. "He'll be the first one in the building, he'll be the last to leave. And the one thing you can count on with Colin Kaepernick is, he tells the truth. I've never, ever heard him lie to me or anyone else."
