Former Governor of Pennsylvania Wants To Trade For Colin Kaepernick


The former Governor of Pennsylvania and Mayor of Philadelphia, Ed Rendell said he would like to see the Philadelphia Eagles move on from QB Sam Bradford and seek a trade for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Rendell said that all is lost with Bradford being the team’s franchise quarterback and would rather see a dual-threat option behind center as he told Rich Zeoli on Talkradio 1210.

“One thing is clear, Sam Bradford is not, in my judgement, the quarterback of the future for the Eagles,” Rendell said. “What I would like to see us get at the end of the year, I’m told that San Francisco is going to be looking to trade Kaepernick and I think in Chip Kelly’s system, Kaepernick could be the perfect quarterback because he can run.”

The Eagles are no strangers to dual-threat quarterbacks as they had one of the best at one time in QB Randall Cunningham.

Whether or not Kaepernick will be traded remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Kaepernick won’t have much success if his offensive line continues to struggle.
