The Dallas Cowboys will not be attending Colin Kaepernick’s workout according to Jerry Jones.
Earlier this week, the NFL decided to host an impromptu workout for the controversial quarterback on Saturday in Atlanta.
In the memo, the league said: “Earlier this year, we discussed some possible steps with his representatives and they recently emphasized his level of preparation and that he is ready to work out for clubs and be interviewed by them. We have therefore arranged this opportunity for him to work out, and for all clubs to have the opportunity to evaluate his current readiness and level of interest in resuming his NFL career.”
It was initially reported that the Cowboys would send a representative but today Jerry Jones went on the radio and shot down that claim.
This is not surprising considering Jones has been a staunch advocate of forcing players to stand during the anthem.

Our policy is that you stand at the anthem, toe on the line,” said Jones when asked if he would support a player staying in the locker room during the anthem.
As of now we now that 11 teams are confirmed to show at the workout but it doesn’t sound like Jones or the Cowboys are remotely interested in signing Kaepernick.
