Report: Eagles not interested in Colin Kaepernick to replace Carson Wentz

The Philadelphia Eagles just watched their best hopes of a Super Bowl in years go down with Carson Wentz’s left knee.

With their starting quarterback done for the season with a torn ACL and a backup in Nick Foles whom only the most optimistic believe is capable of a championship run, the obvious move is to sign the free-agent quarterback with a Super Bowl resume in the prime of his career.

The quarterback who posted a 90.7 rating thanks to a 16-to-4 touchdown to interception ratio the last time he played in 2016.

It seems obvious, right?

But no, the Eagles are not interested in signing Colin Kaepernick, Pro Football Talk reports.

It’s a familiar refrain. But one worth repeating. If a team on the cusp of a Super Bowl run loses its starting quarterback in Week 15 isn’t interested in signing Colin Kaepernick, what is going on?
