Colin Kaepernick said he is ready to play "right now" if an NFL team would sign him, former New York Daily News columnist Shaun King quoted the supposedly shunned free agent quarterback this weekend.

King, now a writer-in-residence at the Harvard University-based Fair Punishment Project, tweeted about his conversation with Kaepernick on Sunday.

King tweeted that he talked with the out-of-work signal-caller about numerous topics in their discussion. NFL Hall of Famer and Fox Sports 1 broadcaster Cris Carter went to Twitter to say he talked with Kaepernick this weekend as well.

In the meantime, Kaepernick found support this weekend from Super Bowl quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, who said he hopes the sidelined quarterback finds a job in the league soon.

"I've always watched him and admired him, the way that he's played he was a great young quarterback," Brady told CBS News' Norah O'Donnell for a story that ran on Sunday. "He came to our stadium and beat us and took his team to the Super Bowl. He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player. And he's certainly qualified and I hope he gets a shot."

Kaepernick infamously first sat and then took a knee during the national anthem before his games with the San Francisco 49ers last season to protest what he called police brutality against African-Americans. That started the NFL player protest era really rolling. He has not been signed by an NFL teams since the end of last season.

Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, 2013 where San Francisco lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-31.
