Hue Jackson to lead Colin Kaepernick workout

Free agent QB Colin Kaepernick will get to workout in front of NFL teams for the first time in a long time. We’ll see if it actually matters.

Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is set to conduct a workout on Saturday in Atlanta, and former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will be leading the workout. The NFL announced that former head coach Joe Philbin will also be in attendance.

The league said that 11 teams have committed to sending at least one representative to the workout. Thats group includes the Cardinals, Falcons, Browns, Broncos, Lions, Dolphins, Patriots, Giants, Jets, Buccaneers, and Washington.

The whole situation has been a little based on the timing of everything. Kaepernick was reportedly told he had to decide whether or not to commit within a few hours and the league would not move the date of the workout. Additionally, it took until Thursday for the league to get Jackson involved, and it sounds like the final QB drills details had not been actually finalized as of mid-day on Thursday.

The league will be providing video of the workout and interview to all 32 teams. I’m skeptical it results in Kaepernick getting an offer, but I suppose crazier things have happened.
