NFL teams invited to private Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend


Share this article


The NFL has organised a private work out for Colin Kaepernick in Atlanta this Saturday - and all 32 teams have been invited.

The quarter-back last played a match in 2016 - when he began kneeling during the national anthem before games as a protest against racial injustice.

He opted out of his San Francisco 49ers contract at the end of that season and Saturday will give him a chance to impress scouts from franchises across the league with video footage also being available.

Teams have been informed by the league Kaepernick will perform on-field work and be available for interview:

"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,” read an NFL memo which was obtained by ESPN.

“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.”

32-year-old Kaepernick has also confirmed the news:

“I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday,” he tweeted.

“I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.”
