UPDATE: We wrote on Sunday that the Bengals may be looking into former Niners QB Colin Kaepernick. The players are reportedly pushing for the move after a lackluster start to the season.
We have further inquired to our sources and reportedly there is no movement on this signing, from either side.
We will update you further as soon as we acquire more information.
Here’s the story from Sunday:
Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly on the radar of some Cincinnati Bengals players.
On Sunday, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the following:
“The feeling within the locker room, we’re told, is that the leash isn’t quite so long” in regard to quarterback Andy Dalton’s status as the starter moving forward following two losses to open the season…

“There’s a feeling among some of the players that the Bengals should go off the board and consider bringing in Colin Kaepernick,” Florio wrote.
Florio even went as far to say that there was a “near mutiny” following a 20-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and then a 10-9 loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday night.
Dalton threw for zero touchdowns and four interceptions in the first two losses, but he was not the only problem. The offensive line struggled as well.
Kaepernick would be much more mobile than Dalton, but entering this situation might be difficult.
That being said, Kaepernick has been training and is ready to play, according to Cris Carter:

It would be a HUGE signing, with the obvious off the field issues accompanying it, but worth the risk.
What do you think about this move?!
