Per KPIX, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will hold a private workout for a number of NFL teams, nearly three years after he last played in the league. Dennis O’Donnell reports.
The session will include on-field work and an interview. All teams are invited to attend, and video of both the workout and the interview will be made available to them.
Several clubs have inquired about Kaepernick’s current football readiness. He has been out of the NFL since 2016, the year he began protesting police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the pregame national anthem.
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 tweeted about the workout Tuesday night:
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.
