In the days following his workout, Kaepernick’s lawyer claimed two NFL teams were interested in signing the unemployed QB.
Four days later it was reported that zero teams actually contacted Kaepernick or his representatives.
Kaepernick, who is reportedly considering holding a second private workout at the next NFL owners meeting, released a new hype video on Monday with footage from his workout alongside his ongoing theme “We stay ready.”
“I’ve been ready for three years. I’ve been denied for three years,” Kaepernick said at his workout. “We all know why I came out here today and showed it in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide.
“So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, the 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running, stop running from the truth, stop running from the people. Around here, we’re ready to play, we’re ready to go anywhere, my agent Jeff Nalley is ready to talk to any team. I’ll interview with any team at any time.
“I’ve been ready. I’m staying ready. And I’ll continue to be ready. To all the people that came out today to support, I appreciate y’all, I love y’all. To the people that aren’t here, I’m thinking of you, I appreciate you supporting from where you are. We’ll continue to give you updates as we hear. We’ll be waiting to hear from Roger Goodell, the NFL, 32 teams. We’ll let you know if we hear from them.
“The ball’s in their court. We’re ready to go.”
“A huge thank you to all the people that made this happen in ATL. From our receivers @brice_butler, @BruceElling10, @TheJordanVeasy, @ariwerts – my trainer Josh Hidalgo, the educators at Charles Drew HS & so many more. Can’t thank everyone enough. We stay ready,” Kaepernick wrote on Twitter.
Reactions to Kaepernick’s video were mixed to say the least.
You gave up your career for the struggle bro. Regardless we will always support you on this side. 💪🗣👏

Bro wants to be famous, not a football player. I was standing with Kap until it wasn't clear what I'm standing for. Good luck.

Cancels workout 30 minutes before scheduled workout. Changes venue to 50 miles away. Expects NFL to bend over backwards for him. Never going to see the field again. Doesn’t want it bad enough. Period.
