Jaguars owner sounds open to signing Colin Kaepernick, but there's one catch
Could Colin Kaepernick end up in Jacksonville?
The Jacksonville Jaguars currently have one of the ugliest quarterback situations in the NFL. With just two weeks to go until the regular season, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone still has no idea is going to be for the team's regular season opener on Sept. 10.
