NFL Invites All 32 Teams To Private Colin Kaepernick Workout

82

Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick will do a private workout on Saturday in Atlanta, GA and all 32 NFL teams have been invited. The session will be hosted by the National Football League.

The session is set to include on-field work and an interview. Videoing will be done and made available to the clubs. Several teams have inquired about Kaepernick and both he and his representatives have expressed a desire for him to return to the NFL.

Kaepernick, 32, hasn’t played since 2016 when he began a silent protest in response to police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers in March 2017.

Kaepernick, along with safety Eric Reid, have filed grievances against the league through its Players Association, alleging collusion from team owners for denying jobs to them. A settlement was reached in February and terms were not disclosed.

Reid is playing in his second season with the Panthers, while Kaepernick has remained on the outside looking in. His representatives have gone on record as to saying he’s continued to workout five days a week for the past three years in preparation for an opportunity to play again in the NFL.
