Colin Kaepernick has not signed a deal with the New England Patriots despite a tweet that attempted to trick social media users. On Tuesday afternoon, one Twitter user tweeted that Kaepernick was going to sign with the Patriots, just one day after the football world learned that the team’s backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had been traded to San Francisco.
It didn’t take long for people to retweet this post, which even caught the eye of SB Nation and Sports Illustrated’s Peter King. However, the tweet was just a joke of sorts. The social media user has since deleted his account from the platform.
