NFL hosting private workout for former quarterback Colin Kaepernick


Mike Ehrmann/Getty ImagesColin Kaepernick has been given an opportunity to show off his skills to NFL teams.

On Tuesday night, the former 49ers quarterback tweeted that the NFL arranged for him to have a workout in Atlanta on Saturday.

“I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday,” he wrote. “I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.”

The NFL organized the private session in Atlanta, which will involve on-field work and an interview, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“The NFL arranged this workout opportunity for Colin Kaepernick, and teams will have the opportunity to evaluate his readiness and level of interest in resuming his NFL career,” Schefter tweeted. “His agents have said he wants to return to the NFL, and the league hopes this provides that chance.”

Schefter reported that all 32 teams are invited, and a video of the workout and interview will be made available as well.

Kaepernick, 32, hasn’t played for a team since the 2016 season.
