This weekend Colin Kaepernick is going to have the ability to show off his talents in front of all 32 NFL teams after the league arranged a work out for him.


NFL clubs were informed Tuesday that a private workout will be held for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday in Atlanta, according to a copy of a memo obtained by ESPN.

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.”

Kaepernick accepted the workout invitation and released a statement saying he was ready to meet with coaches.

I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.

Apparently, Kaepernick’s workout was organized at the last minute by the NFL and Kaep’s team was caught off guard by the whole thing.

One NFL team official believes the entire workout is a sham concocted by the league.

One thing is clear, based on talent alone and the litany of terrible backup QBs and even starters around the league, Kaepernick should be playing in the NFL.  Will this be an actual opportunity for him to showcase his talent and find a new team? Or will his beliefs and activism continue to stand in the way of his NFL career.

Time will tell if we see him in the league again, but the good news is we should have a definitive answer by next week.
