Colin Kaepernick wants everyone to know he’s still NFL ready… and he’s showing off his rocket arm during a training session in Houston.
Kaepernick hit the field with Josh Hidalgo — Head of Sports Performance at William Paterson University — and threw some darts with a team of pass catchers.
When healthy, there aren’t many?tight ends in the NFL more dynamic than Eifert. The 13 games he played in 2015 led to a Pro Bowl berth after catching 52 passes – 13 for touchdowns. In just two starts (eight games) in 2016 he caught five touchdowns on 29 receptions.
Of his 127 career receptions, 20 have gone for scores.
He is coming off back and knee surgeries that ended his season after two games in 2017, but he has said he’s healthy and believes he’s on track to participate in spring workouts.
“I think we’re moving in the right direction and I’m just happy to be back,” Eifert said.?
While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Browns head coach Hue Jackson already named Tyrod Taylor his starting quarterback for 2018.

While the signings are far from finished, a busy run of?deals helped fill in the blanks about many teams and their needs. Moreover, a number of moves set the table for April’s draft, as some of the biggest decision makers showed where their priorities sit.
Ahead of Kirk Cousins zeroing in on the Vikings, several of the most quarterback-needy teams looked elsewhere to address their deficiencies. But none of at the top of the draft board emerged with a definitive long-term solution that would make drafting a passer redundant.
