We are days away from Colin Kaepernick’s long overdue workout for a number of teams in the NFL. On Thursday, the league released a statement confirming the teams that will be in attendance, with anticipation of more to join.
In the statement, they have confirmed that 11 teams will be present during Saturday’s workout. Including Arizona, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Miami, New England, The New York Giants, and also the New York Jets, Tampa Bay, and Washington. They are also anticipating additional teams to commit to showing up as well.
Nonetheless, they say that they will be providing a video of the workout and interview to all 32 teams within the league, including head coaches and general managers.
Former NFL head coach Hue Jackson is set to lead the workout, and former coach Joe Philbin will also be expected to be present as well.

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

Colin last played in the NFL back in 2016 while still a member of the San Francisco 49ers. It was while he was a member of that team, he launched his kneeling movement, which served as a peaceful protest in reaction to the multiple cases of injustice that minorities had faced when it came to law enforcement.
Roommates, which team would you love to see Colin play for?
