Just last year Colin Kaepernick held an open workout for several NFL teams and said his intentions were to play in the league again despite the fact that no team has reached out to sign him in three years.

“To all the people who came out here 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 your support 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, the 32 teams — we’ll let you know if we hear from them.”

Today, several people noticed that the NFL’s website has listed Kaepernick as “retired” which didn’t sit right with many, include Kaep’s girlfriend Nessa considering he’s never handed in his retirement papers and has continued to lobby to play in the league.

The NFL recently redesigned its website. And the new version of the pages assigned to each current and historical player has created a bit of a stir: Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is listed as “retired.”

Update: The NFL changed Kapernernick’s status from retired to UFA (unrestricted free agent).
