According to Smith, Kaepernick could be starting for 10 NFL teams right now, but as Solari explains, there actually isn't a team in the league that would be better off moving forward with Kaepernick at QB, than they are right now. Also, Max...

It's an exciting time in sports. Las Vegas, a city professional sports leagues used to avoid like the plague, is all of a sudden the center of the sports universe, with the NHL and NFL on their ways to the Silver State. How long until the NBA and Major League Baseball join them?
