Last month, the workout that was scheduled by the NFL to showcase Colin Kaepernick hit a snag when the former 49ers QB suddenly changed the venue and brought his own wide receivers to a local high school in the Atlanta area.
The showcase may have been for Kaepernick but former CAL wide receiver Jordan Veasy would end up getting a tryout with the Washington Redskins after he was seen catching passes on live stream by millions of people.
Veasy would soon get signed to the Redskins practice squad and he credited Kaepernick for that happening.
“IT HELPED,” THE 6-FOOT-3 PASS CATCHER SAID, VIA THE WASHINGTON POST. “THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS I WANTED TO BE A PART OF IT. JUST BEING A PART OF THE HISTORY OF IT, AND I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HELP ME.”
Veasy caught just 63 passes for 797 yards in two seasons with the Cal Bears before the Titans would sign the undrafted free-agent after the 2018 NFL Draft.
Despite looking like an NFL QB, no team has shown any interest in signing Kaepernick since that infamous workout.
