There aren’t many 31-year-old quarterbacks that are as good as Kap on the market. He’s a dynamic, dual-threat quarterback that’s proven his capabilities on the NFL’s highest level. It’s a shame he’s been out the league the past few seasons.

However, it may not be long until he gets his next chance. Numerous teams could use a quarterback that has his resume. Kap has two seasons in which he totaled over 3,000 yards, one of which he led the 49ers to a 12-4 record.

In 2013 and 2014, the shifty. The 6-foot-4 quarterback also ran for over 500 yards. Just for comparison’s sake, Cam Newton, who used to be one of the league’s premier running quarterbacks, managed half a 1,000 yards six times.

Many QBs in their entire career don’t even get close to 500-plus yards on the ground in one season. Coupling his running and passing abilities, it’s clear that Kap was regarded as one of the league’s better quarterbacks for a reason.

He can run, he can pass, and he can play make. The only question mark is how much does a few years not in the league hurt his capabilities? That, we couldn’t answer till he potentially works out for the Saints, if it comes to that.
