Z Had ‘Some Influence’ in Colin Kaepernick’s NFL Workout

According to various reports contained here, these teams include New England, Denver, Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, and the New York Giants. Its fans are ready to revolt if Kaepernick joins Dallas.

Rapoport did not elaborate on just how the rapper parlayed that "influence" into getting Kaepernick a workout. I don't know whether Kaepernick was a victim of such a denial, but he might well have been. So, they could soon be in the market for a backup quarterback.

Kaepernick was not in the league when the controversy over players' protests intensified in 2017, after President Donald Trump said at a rally that owners should fire any player who protests during the anthem.

The NFL Network is reporting that the Saturday workout will have "the feel of" the NFL combine, with Kaepernick participating in an interview, measurements, timing and drills. "Seattle brought Colin in for a visit but did not work him out".

If a team isn't able to send someone to the workout, every part will be recorded to share with National Football League teams.

"Being that it's on a Saturday, what decision-makers are going to be able to attend a workout?" he said. The protest later evolved into kneeling after onetime Seattle Seahawk and Green Beret Nate Boyer convinced Kaepernick it would be more respectful to the nation's military, the quarterback has said. I still stand on my word!

Kaepernick's representatives were told Tuesday morning that the workout had been scheduled for Saturday, according to a person familiar with the deliberations.

"At this point I'll believe it when I see it".

Smith reported on First Take that multiple teams called the league office inquiring about Kaepernick. Or it could be that after settling a collusion grievance with Kaepernick and fellow protester Eric Reid-who now plays for the Carolina Panthers-earlier this year, the league is finally ready to give the 32-year-old quarterback a real shot. If Kaepernick doesn't get an offer, his supporters will speculate that the workout was a sham.
