Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp caused quite the stir when he recently dropped some inside information on quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Said Sapp of the Kaepernick’s Raiders workout, “I heard it was a disaster. I heard one of the worst workouts ever.”
Kaepernick’s agent, Jeff Nalley, has now fired back at his claims.
“I guess Warren didn’t talk to the General Manager or the head coach,” Nalley told PFT via text message. “I spoke to the G.M. [Dave Zieger] several times and he said they all thought Kap was in great shape and threw the ball really well and encouraged any team to call him about the workout and he would tell them the same. I’m surprised Warren would say that, because it’s not true and you would think he would want Kap on a team.”
Kaepernick worked out with the Raiders last month, and it appeared an NFL comeback was imminent. The Raiders were reportedly impressed with Kaepernick’s arm strength and conditioning, and the team considered the workout a “positive” sign.
Kaepernick, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, remains unsigned following his workout.
