The AAF completed Week 3 of its inaugural season on Feb. 23 and 24.
The season began on Feb. 9. The Birmingham Irons and Orlando Apollos are both 3–0 atop the East Division. The Arizona Hotshots and San Diego Fleet lead the West Division at 2–1.
Kaepernick last played in 2016. The quarterback-turned-activist has since reached a settlement agreement with the NFL in his case alleging the league colluded to keep him from playing after his on-field protests.
