Colin Kaepernick is going to get his best chance of getting back into the NFL after it was announced he will reportedly hold a private workout for a number of NFL teams, nearly three years after he last played in the league.
According to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, the NFL arranged the workout and invited all 32 clubs to attend Saturday in Atlanta.
The report said all NFL teams received the following memo about Kaepernick from the league: “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.”
Soon after the announcement, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback took to Twitter and broke his silence about his impending workout, saying, “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.”
Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season when he parted ways with the San Francisco 49ers and no team would touch him after a season filled with controversy over him kneeling during the National Anthem.
