Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is set to take part in a workout this weekend that will be open to all 32 NFL teams. The NFL worked to set it up, and while there are serious questions as to how legit this really is, teams will still have a chance to see what Kap can do.
The league is closing this to media, so it will require direct questioning of teams to see who will plan on attending. Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores told the media the Dolphins will have a representative on hand. He likes his quarterback situation (insert joke about Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen), but always wants to do due diligence on how the team might improve the roster.
The Los Angeles Chargers are not quite as sure about attending. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported a team source “was not definitively sure whether a team rep would attend Colin Kaepernick’s workout Saturday, at that moment.” The source told her ‘we may have a scout there,’ but added they’re ‘good with that position. 2 years ago, different story.’” There’s no word on why they didn’t then work out Kap two years ago if it was a different story.
The workout is scheduled for this Saturday in Atlanta starting at 3:00 p.m. Jason La Canfora tweeted this schedule.
