Though it seems unlikely that Kaepernick signs with any team this season, it only takes one and SB Nation believes the Detroit Lions could be a fit.

From SB Nation:

Matthew Stafford missed a game for the first time since 2010 when he sat out Week 10 due to broken bones in his back, along with a hip injury. It’s unknown how long those problems will keep him on the sideline. Jeff Driskel is the Lions’ starter in the meantime.

Driskel started five games for the Bengals in 2018 and was released by the team before the start of the 2019 season. In his first start with the Lions, he threw one touchdown and one interception. He’s just 1-5 as a starter in his career.

If Stafford returns soon, Detroit will probably be just fine with Driskel returning to his backup role. But if the back injury requires a lengthy recovery, or any kind of setback happens, Kaepernick could be a quick addition to battle for Driskel’s spot on the depth chart.

Personally, I doubt the Lions sign Kaepernick and the hypothetical odds released by Johnny Avello reflect that thought.
