Colin Kaepernick’s workout this past weekend was quite the scene, with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback taking matters into his own hands after the NFL failed to be fully transparent about the opportunity he was extended to try and jumpstart his career again. While there were lots of reactions to Kaep’s throwing session — as well as debate over his actual purpose of participating — it’s clear that the guy wants back in the league, and he’ll do anything he can for the chance.

In fact, Colin Kaepernick’s workout video is going to be shopped around to every single NFL team following the throwing display the other day, with the signal-caller leveraging the opportunity into a hopeful shot at rejoining a team’s roster. So far, no teams have reportedly come calling yet.

The news comes from TMZ Sports, which detailed some of the news following the workout.

Colin Kaepernick’s team has sent the full video of his Saturday workout to all 32 NFL clubs, TMZ Sports has learned … and now the waiting game begins.

Sources connected to Kap tell us turning the video around quickly was a priority and they had it out within 24 hours of the Atlanta workout.

We’re told Colin also sent a note to each team saying he’s ready, willing and able to visit with any team for an interview and/or workout (as teams usually do) if there’s real interest.

Of course, the most important thing for Team Kap is making sure decision-makers get a chance to see Colin’s skills for themselves so they can quickly evaluate him and hopefully make an offer.

It’s quite the strategy by Colin Kaepernick and his team, which moved the workout this past weekend to a different location than previously planned because they wanted access to record the thing themselves — which was not part of the original deal with the NFL. Now that his team has turned around the tape quickly, he hopes he’ll get his NFL chance sooner rather than later.

Reactions from the workout were fairly positive, with scouts who attended praising his arm strength and fitness levels, while some did criticize his deep ball. But, given the fact Colin Kaepernick’s been out of football for three years, he has to take the reviews as a positive — and, hopefully, the scouts influence general manager’s around the league.

Time will tell what happens with Colin Kaepernick’s NFL future, but, at the very least, he’s not limiting himself to only a few teams — or the eight that were in attendance — and, instead, is looking for just one franchise to take the bait and add him to their roster. Let’s see if it works for him.
