FOX's Matt Napolitano reports:

Ahead of the Panthers' game against Kaepernick's former squad, the 49ers, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton was asked whether or not he believes the controversial free agent QB should be on an NFL roster:

(Newton) "In my own opinion, do I think Kaepernick is better than some of these starting quarterbacks in this league? Absolutely. Should he be on a roster, in my own opinion? Absolutely."

Newton adding that it is unfair that Kaepernick has yet to be signed by a team.

Kaepernick remains a free agent since opting out of the final year of his contract with the 49ers back in March.
