Costa Rica - While Colin Kaepernick is now unsigned, his capacity and talent when it comes to football is not a secret to a lot of football fans as well as to the former NFL (National Football League) quarterback Johnny Manziel.

"I'd do something involved with sports", Manziel told Travis. "I've had to ask myself that a little bit as of late over the past year, but at the same time I'd want to be involved in sports in some way, whether it's coaching or something else". Manziel said Kaepernick is good enough to be on a roster. He's a starting-caliber quarterback in the NFL - a league that doesn't feature enough starting-caliber quarterbacks to go around - yet he's still a free agent.

Another option Manziel said he's considered as a way of staying in the game is playing in the Canadian Football League. He may have had a couple of down years, but he has a track record of proving that he can go out and play.

Manziel was then asked at which level he'd like to coach.

The former A&M QB has a marginal amount of coaching history. Though he met with Saints coach Sean Payton this offseason, that meeting didn't lead to a job. But Manziel was a brilliant college player.

Manziel - who's now working his own way back into the league - says Kaep's already proven his worth in huge games. and doesn't think his National Anthem protest in 2016 should affect his relationship with teams.

He added that the CFL was "definitely something I've looked into", but that his goal was to get back to the NFL.
