NFL's waiver for Colin Kaepernick the main focus of issue over workout

Kaepernick chose to move the workout to a high school 60 miles away, though, and that number decreased by quite a bit.

After Kaepernick changed the workout location from Flowery Branch to Riverdale, only eight of the 25 expected teams ended up attending the workout. I was real curious to see how the workout went. "I'll be honest, I'm a little bit pessimistic because I've talked to all 32 teams".

His critics can claim he's too much trouble, more interested in making statements than making plays.

"They wouldn't even tell him who was going to run his routes for him", said Reid, who attended the rescheduled workout. "I want him in the league".

That the Panthers didn't attend the workout didn't surprise Reid because team owner David Tepper told him last week Carolina wasn't looking for a veteran quarterback to compete with Kyle Allen. And after Kaepernick did things on his own terms, some claimed that Jay-Z was disappointed by the controversial quarterback's decision. If you're already known for inflammatory reasons, do you really think it's smart to show up for the workout that you've been begging for three years with a Kunta Kinte shirt on?

"He's been working out every day for three years", Reid said.

At the previous moment, Kaepernick announced that he'd be altering the spot of his workout owing to the conditions that arrived together with the league's waiver. Its original goal was to demonstrate Kaepernick's "readiness" and "level of interest" to be back in the NFL.

Kaepernick's waiver reportedly stuck to physical injuries instead of injuries "arising out of, occurring during, or related directly or indirectly to the workout".

Colin Kaepernick looks to make a pass during a private National Football League workout held at Charles R Drew high school on November 16, 2019 in Riverdale, Georgia. Jay-Z was said to have an influence in setting up the practice for Kaepernick this past Saturday.

Sep one, 2016 San Diego, CA, Usa San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) walks up the tunnel following a 31-21 gain above the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium.

Uncomfortable with this take-it-or-leave-it type of deal, the 32-year-old quarterback chose to change the rules and control the narrative, organizing his own workout.

Smith added: "You don't want to work (in the NFL), you just want to make noise and control the narrative". "I think we could use Colin's help".

"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". But, at the last second, Kaepernick shocked everyone by switching the location to a high school.
